Multimedia Polska S.A., a cable and IPTV service provider in Poland with more than 600,000 subscribers, has deployed Harmonic‘s on-demand solutions for its new VOD service launched last September. Multimedia Polska is the first cable operator in Poland to roll out VOD, and the service, initially available in six cities, will be available to their entire digital cable subscriber base by the end of the year. Multimedia Polska is also an existing customer of Harmonic’s optical transmission solutions.
The solution implemented by Multimedia Polska includes Harmonic’s StreamLiner video servers and Armada intelligent asset manager for dynamic adaptive distribution of assets based on popularity and available resources. The VOD network is a distributed system with nearly 20 regional sites across the country linked using IP-based connectivity.
