Charter Communications has powered a new video-on-demand deployment in Malibu, Calif. by integrating nCUBE Corp.'s back office and application platform and software and servers from Kasenna Inc.
There, Charter said it has deployed nCUBE's nABLE and nODA software and Kasenna's MediaBase XMP platform.
The deployment establishes Charter's third source for video servers. The MSO also uses video servers and back office platforms from nCUBE and Concurrent Computer Corp.
The Malibu launch marks Kasenna's first VOD deployment with a major cable MSO. Kasenna is the second server maker to license nCUBE's back office platform. MidStream Technologies was the first.
