Concurrent announced this morning that its unified content delivery network (CDN) platform was field deployed by a top-five North American multiple service operator.
Concurrent didn’t identify the service provider that was using its MediaHawk CDN to support its nationwide VOD services, but the vendor did say that its platform allowed the service provider to more than double the number of titles available for on demand playback.
“As service providers consider how to invest their money, they have to decide whether to expand core TV services or focus on deploying next generation multi-screen services,” commented Jim Marino, Concurrent’s senior vice president of global sales. “Core TV services like VOD are generating revenue today, while online services promise to generate new revenue in the future. With our MediaHawk VX solution, operators can invest in one solution that supports both their current and future video requirements, making it a logical choice. We are excited to announce another new win with a major customer and to highlight an excellent example of the merits of our unified solution strategy.”
MediaHawk supports applications such as linear broadcast, video on demand, time shifted TV, and network DVR on any screen, delivered over any network.
