Concurrent Computer Corp. and TVGateway LLC teamed up to build an integrated system that combines video-on-demand with an interactive program guide.
Concurrent combined its VOD product with TVGateway's interactive program guide into a product that can be used with any Motorola DCT2000 set-top box using WorldGate CableWare middleware.
Concurrent's MediaHawk Broadband VOD system consists of the MediaHawk Video Server and Broadband VOD BackOffice Business management System.
For its part, TVGateway's IPG will plug into WorldGate's middleware platform and other ITV applications on the Motorola DCT2000.
The integrated system is intended to supply operators with an easily deployed, comprehensive product, and subscribers with access to movies and other on-demand services, TVGateway says.
