Concurrent unleashes next-gen on-demand suite
Concurrent has launched the MediaHawk On-Demand Back Office Software Suite (MHBOSS), which enables apps such as time-shifted TV and nDVR.
The suite, built on Oracle’s 10g database and Real Application Clusters (RAC), is scalable and can extend to support any number of emerging apps, the company said. And as on-demand utilization increases, the suite’s capacity can as well with the addition of computing and storage modules.
MHBOSS' open architecture allows interoperability with multiple VOD server vendors and numerous software apps through interfaces such as XML and SOAP, and the suite is designed for integration with OCAP apps, the company said. The software also provides Web services for any apps that require information from the back office.
Concurrent's MediaHawk 4500 and 4000 lines of video servers are compatible with the new on-demand offering.
Concurrent will demonstrate the MHBOSS at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando, Fla., June 19-22.
