Harris Broadcast has completed the acquisition of OTT and mobile video technology firm Imagine Communications.

Harris said the deal, which was announced in December, would boost its range of offerings.

“TV Everywhere is the future of our industry, and our customers are vigorously pursuing this path to expand their business models and improve the monetisation of content across any screen,” said Harris Broadcast chief executive Charlie Vogt.

“The advanced adaptive bit rate (ABR) technology created by Imagine combines quality, density and a small footprint to greatly leapfrog anything else on the market today and improves transcoding economics up to a factor of 10 over competing alternatives.

“Our content creator and content distribution customers, including cable, MSO and telecommunications service providers, will benefit significantly from end-to-end portfolio integration that establishes a clear pathway to linear and non-linear viewing parity across every screen.”
