Pulse is an advanced multi-channel broadcast automation system designed to simplify complex digital media acquisition and playout workflows.  Optimized for Harmonic's Spectrum™ video server technology, Pulse is a highly scalable, cost-effective solution capable of controlling hundreds of channels while minimizing complexities.  Built with enterprise environments in mind, Pulse delivers the stability and reliability required by mission critical environments, 24/7.

Flexible Control

Pulse enables operators to easily view and control any number of channels from a single user interface.  With it's unique design, Pulse enables multiple operators to simultaneously view and control the same pool of channels from any internal or external location.  Administrators can even allocate specific channels to specific users at any time enabling greater control of day to day operations.

Flexible Infrastructure

Pulse is modular by design, making it easy and cost-effective to scale with your infrastructure needs.  Each module, channel, and user connection are individually licensed giving you the flexibility and piece of mind that when it comes time to scale your environment, Pulse will easily scale along with it.
