Korean MSO goes on-demand with SeaChange
SeaChange International scored some business in Asia this week, signing a deal to provide servers and software to support a video-on-demand (VOD) rollout in Korea.
Korean cable operator Qrix Communications Inc. is moving into the on-demand realm after deploying SeaChange's near-VOD systems. Qrix launched NVOD last year to about 450,000 subs.
Under the VOD extension, Qrix will offer a range of movies and subscription-based packages to digital customers in Seoul.
SeaChange said more than a dozen Korean cable, broadcast and satellite TV companies have deployed the vendor's digital video systems so far.
