SAN JOSE, Calif. — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced that Mowies, a LATAM-based on-demand media platform, with a unique revenue model for creators of feature films, documentaries, TV series, theatrical performances, concerts and other original content, is optimizing its workflow with Harmonic’s VOS®360 cloud streaming offering. Based on a pay-as-you-grow business model, Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS is helping Mowies expand its offering, which uniquely allows consumers to purchase on-demand content directly from filmmakers, musicians and storytellers. The VOS360 SaaS provides Mowies with an easy-to-use, end-to-end solution for media processing and delivery, optimizing bandwidth usage and enabling an exceptional viewing experience for viewers.
“As a recent entrant to the streaming market, Mowies is growing rapidly as more creators and users come onboard every day,” said Alejo Arango, CEO at Mowies. “Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS gives us the ability to scale based on our growing viewership, without requiring investments in infrastructure. Thanks to Harmonic, we have a streamlined solution from source to screen, and we can confidently keep adding new content and gaining much needed visibility for content creators.”
Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS supports the entire streaming workflow from ingest to delivery, allowing simpler on-demand streaming with easy control through a rich API.

EyeQ encoding reduces Mowies’ storage and CDN requirements by up to 50% compared with traditional encoding methods. Harmonic’s worldwide team of DevOps experts provides 24/7 monitoring and assistance to ensure the highest service availability for Mowies at all times.
“Mowies required a fast time-to-market, and that’s an area where the VOS360 platform really shines. With its flexible cloud-based architecture, the VOS360 platform was up and running in weeks,” said Alvaro Martin, vice president, sales and services, Latin America, at Harmonic. “With the VOS360 solution powering their streaming workflow, Mowies can deliver content from independent content creators and Hollywood filmmakers via a single, end-to-end platform, reducing their operating costs and decreasing complexity.”
