Concurrent Introduces Unified Video Delivery Solutions For The Service Provider CDN Market

ATLANTA, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --  Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a worldwide leader in video and media data solutions, is announcing new software solutions for service providers intending to build their own content delivery networks (CDNs). Concurrent's CDN product suite includes a unified origin server and unified edge server that can support traditional TV-VOD and HTTP delivery simultaneously using the same server hardware. By converging features from its flagship VOD product, MediaHawk™ VX, with its newly announced eFactor™ product suite for HTTP delivery, Concurrent has created a new breed of solutions designed to simplify the migration of services from traditional RF frameworks toward a pure IP model.

"Today's video revenues are primarily generated from video services that are delivered over RF networks to traditional set-top boxes," said James Brickmeier, Concurrent's vice president and general manager of video solutions. "While the introduction of new HTTP services in the near term represents an incremental growth opportunity for service providers, the long term challenge facing operators is how to cost effectively migrate their existing businesses to more flexible IP delivery models. There is a huge investment in RF networks, and competitive pressures drive the pace of the migration. Concurrent's CDN solution is designed to allow operators to facilitate the RF to IP transition at their own pace and without the capex challenges or risk associated with introducing new platforms into the network."

Concurrent's software can be configured to support pure TV-VOD, pure HTTP, or a mixture of protocols from the same server, enabling traditional services to be smoothly migrated to new devices without the need to introduce new hardware into the network. Concurrent's CDN solutions also include eFactor's transmuxing capabilities, which reduce the complexities of delivering multi-screen video by enabling a single content format to be converted on-demand to other formats as needed. Concurrent's CDN products include:

  • MediaHawk VX Unified Origin Server: HTTP origin server
  • MediaHawk VX Unified Edge Server: TV-VOD & HTTP streamer & intelligent cache
  • eFactor HTTP Edge: Pure HTTP streaming server & intelligent cache
  • CDN Ingest Manager: Content orchestration & TV-VOD back office integration

Employed together, Concurrent's CDN products support video delivery over managed or unmanaged networks to a wide variety of consumer electronic devices including RF & IP set-top boxes, connected TVs, PCs, tablet computers, smartphones, and gaming systems. Deployed independently, each product supports open communication protocols and can be integrated as part of a multi-vendor ecosystem employing best-of-breed technologies.
