ZON Launches Network DVR With Concurrent's Help
ATLANTA -- Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in video and media data intelligence solutions, has partnered with ZON Multimedia to launch multi-screen network digital video recording services using Concurrentís MediaHawk VX unified content delivery solution.
ZON, Portugalís leading pay TV operator and the countryís second largest Internet provider, has enhanced their IRIS multi-screen video service offering with advanced network-based digital video recording features. ZONís IRIS solution offers customers a uniform, graphically rich video navigation experience on a variety of consumer electronic devices, including televisions, personal computers, iPads, and iPhones. Branded as Timewarp, ZONís video catch up service allows consumers to record any live TV program on more than 70 channels and view it up to seven days after airing. Users can record multiple channels simultaneously and playback recorded programs on-demand at their convenience.
ZON uses Concurrentís MediaHawk VX unified content delivery solution and intelligent video archival software to record and cost effectively store video programming in the network. Archived programming can be accessed by consumers on their own schedule and viewed on a wide variety of consumer electronics devices. In addition to enhancing the competitiveness of ZONís market leading multi-screen video service offering, Concurrentís MediaHawk VX solution allows ZON to reduce expenditures on expensive, maintenance intensive set-top box DVRs. Maintenance costs are lowered by positioning storage in the service providerís facility rather than the consumerís home, making the system easier to service and upgrade. Concurrentís solution is modular and scalable, enabling ZON to progressively increase the recording, storage, and streaming capacity of the Timewarp service over time to satisfy growing consumer demand for the new service.
