At SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2008 booth #1753, Harmonic Inc. will feature new products and solutions that address the most critical needs of cable operators, including video compression for rich high definition (HD) programming, IP-based headend consolidation to lower operating expenditures, and fiber-based transport to improve bandwidth efficiency.

At this year's show, Harmonic will also announce enhancements to its industry-leading NSG(TM) 9000 universal edgeQAM and fiber-based transport solutions. Cable-Tec Expo is a leading conference and technology exhibition for North American cable that will be held in Philadelphia from June 25-27.

June 2008 also marks twenty years of innovation, experience and market leadership for Harmonic in the television industry. Founded as Harmonic Lightwaves in 1988 focusing on development of ground-breaking optics technology, Harmonic went on to become a global leader in digital video and on-demand with the acquisitions of DiviCom (2000), Entone's on-demand business (2006) and Rhozet Technologies (2007). Today, the Company continues to pioneer significant advances in all aspects of video delivery technology.

"Over the years, Harmonic has successfully set the pace by developing technologies that enable more efficient and superior quality video services for cable operators, including the industry's first edgeQAM, the first all-IP headend solution, the world's first all MPEG-4 AVC deployment, and the first scalable node, " said Nimrod Ben-Natan, Vice President of Product Marketing, Solutions and Strategy for Harmonic Inc. "Our leadership in cable continues to grow, with our focus on pioneering new technologies and introducing solutions that lower operators' expenses and enable new services. Today, solutions including powerful HD compression, modular CMTS capabilities on the NSG 9000, IP cable including Direct-to-Edge technology, and bandwidth expansion with more scalable HFC and FTTH transport are being evaluated and implemented by operators around the world."
