Fully Featured Entry Level Video-on-Demand and Live-Streaming Solutions for Cable Operators
ATLANTA (July 26, 2017) – Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in storage, protection, transformation and delivery of visual assets, introduces today its new Media Delivery Springboard solutions, a cost-effective means for small and medium-sized independent cable operators to ingest, store, transform and deliver video-on-demand (VOD) and live-streaming content.
Traditional content delivery networks come with high start-up costs, which present a challenge for small and mid-size operators that may lack the necessary capital to invest in large-scale infrastructure. Concurrent’s new Media Delivery Springboard helps independent cable operators with smaller budgets and limited resources remain competitive with an entry-level video delivery solution requiring minimal infrastructure investment.
There are three options available, including a VOD solution for QAM-based set-top boxes, a VOD and live-streaming solution for IP devices and a content delivery network solution that supports both QAM and IP devices. Each one offers comprehensive services and provides the ability to scale as capacity requirements grow.
“The Media Delivery Springboard provides unparalleled value for independent cable operators without compromising on quality,” said Scott Ryan, Concurrent’s Sr. Vice President of Products and Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re proud to equip these operators with a premium-grade revenue-generating platform for the advanced services their customers desire.”
The solutions provide a seamless migration path for increasing services and storage as operator subscriber bases grow. Embedded content adaptation features such as Just-In-Time Packaging, dynamic DRM encapsulation, and manifest manipulation provide video service operators a feature-rich solution with uncompromising performance, scale and multi-service capabilities.
Media Delivery Springboard is fully supported by Concurrent’s 24/7 support team and software troubleshooting capabilities, including application logging for key events and remote support for troubleshooting, maintenance and software upgrades.
