Concurrent has Smart TVs covered
Concurrent has modified its video system so that it will now be able to deliver content directly to Smart TVs.
The company expanded the software for its MediaHawk platform to enable the delivery of on-demand content to Internet-connected devices, specifically Smart TVs, bypassing traditional set-top boxes.
Each Smart TV has unique integration requirements, the company said, so it is important to provide operators with a flexible video delivery solution that is certified against the most popular TV brands. Concurrent said it has been working with a European operator it declined to identify to extend video-on-demand services to a wide range of Internet-connected TVs using the MediaHawk platform.
“Consumers are eager to receive the content they want on every device. After purchasing a new Smart TV and connecting it to the Internet, it is critically important for consumers to be able to access cable- and telco-based video service offerings right alongside those available from over-the-top suppliers,” said Erik Weston, director of product line management for Concurrent. “We remain committed to providing solutions that keep our customers at the forefront of the industry and giving them the opportunity to compete on any screen using the core investments they make in our technology.”
