"Harmonic's File360 SaaS is the next generation of file transcoding for Siminn. It gives us new encoding capabilities, such as HEVC/H.265 encoding, while adding more security to our transcoding workflow and the flexibility to expand our transcoding capacity well into the future as our company grows," said Sveinbjörn Bjarki Jónsson, head of department, television system, at Siminn. "One of the beauties of SaaS is that there is no on-premise equipment, so no installation is needed. Integration with our backend system was incredibly fast, thanks to a very intuitive API with useful tools. We couldn't be happier with the speed of onboarding and the excellent service and support we received from Harmonic, not to mention the amazing video quality we can soon offer to our subscribers."
The new File360 offering is a dedicated file-based transcoding SaaS that transforms virtually any asset to the most popular distribution formats used today. It leverages public cloud infrastructure to offer highly flexible and dynamically scalable transcoding farms at the most competitive rates. Fully monitored and maintained by Harmonic, the File360 solution is designed to be self-service — from the initial onboarding and configurations to creating the first transcoding job. However, Harmonic monitors the service 24/7 to ensure maximum uptime, exceeding the SLA and to provide immediate support as required.
"Moving to a SaaS model increases Siminn's operational efficiency — no more maintaining their own on-premises farm and the OS patches, software upgrades and RMAs that go with it," said
