sundirectDTH operator Sun Direct (Sun) has taken up a new HEVC media processing solution from video delivery services, Harmonic, which will enable it to entertain its viewers with 80 extra HD channels.

Using Harmonic’s Electra X2 encoder and Prostream multiplexer, Sun can stream extra channels from existing four transponders at low bitrates.

"Today's television viewers want exceptional video quality and a broad selection of channels. When we looked into expanding our HD service offering, we needed to partner with an expert in satellite deployments and encoding efficiency," said Sun Group CTO S Kannan. "Harmonic enables us to deliver more channels using the same amount of transponder space so that we can focus on increasing subscriber satisfaction and revenue growth."
