Virgin Media will use Concurrent’s MediaHawk® technology to support Virgin TV Anywhere, a new cloud-based entertainment service that gives customers the flexibility to enjoy their favorite TV content on computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Concurrent enables Virgin Media to reach multiple devices using a common software solution and content delivery architecture.

“With Virgin TV Anywhere, Virgin Media is helping our customers enjoy compelling entertainment whenever they want, wherever they are. We continue to grow the services we offer and, with Concurrent’s solution, we can reach new screens more easily and rapidly scale our system to meet increasing demand for Internet-based services,” said Scott Kewley, Virgin Media’s Director, Multi-Screen Product. “Concurrent’s unified solution was a great fit for us given the wide range of services we offer. We are committed to offering our customers a compelling experience on every screen and we are excited to be working with Concurrent to achieve our goals.”

Concurrent adds Virgin Media to a growing list of high profile customers in Europe, which includes Kabel Deutschland in Germany, ZON Multimedia in Portugal, Telefonica in Spain, and Vectra in Poland.

“We are proud to be working with Virgin Media to deliver innovative multi-screen video services to consumers,” said Jim Marino, Senior Vice President of Sales for Concurrent. “Concurrent’s strategy has been to provide operators with solutions that make it easier to launch new applications on any screen.
