Concurrent Launches Multi-Screen Start-Over

Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in multi-screen video delivery and media data intelligence software solutions, today announced the launch of multi-screen start-over services at a top-tier European Cable MSO using Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX™ unified content delivery solution. Concurrent’s software-based streaming solution enables consumers to pause, rewind, and fast-forward live broadcast video programming on a wide array of IP connected devices.

Using Concurrent’s solution, live video content is cached in the network as it is being streamed. Content is stored for a set duration to provide a rolling time-shifted playback window. During this window, consumers can watch and interactively control content playback on any of their connected devices. Unlike traditional DVR technology, which relies on storage embedded in the consumer device, Concurrent’s unified content delivery solution caches content in the network. By alleviating the need for storage in the consumer device, a wider array of devices and a larger audience can use time-shifted TV services. The cost advantages of network based recording services are numerous, including a reduction in the aggregate amount of storage required to support the service, decreased system complexity, simplified maintenance and fewer truck rolls.

“Network based time-shifted TV services are a great way for service providers to deliver premium pay TV functionality to a new array of smart TVs, streaming media consoles, and mobile devices,” said James Brickmeier, Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing. “By offering more control over live content and a better overall user experience, service providers can attract more subscribers and cater to those of us who watch more video on our second and third screen devices than we do on our home TV. Pay TV operators are in a unique position to capitalize on the growing demand for online streaming services and Concurrent is delivering the functionality they need to reach customers on a whole new set of screens.”
