ACTON, Mass. -- SeaChange International (NASDAQ: SEAC) today announced that Buckeye CableSystem has upgraded its existing SeaChange video-on-demand platform to include new SeaChange software and flash memory servers that will help grow its VOD offering available to its 90,000 digital subscribers in Ohio and Michigan. This upgrade supports Buckeye’s introduction of high-definition content as well as the continued growth of its traditional VOD business. Having built its VOD service – Buckeye VOD – from the ground up with SeaChange systems, Buckeye is now generating nearly a quarter-of-a-million monthly VOD requests, an increase of nearly 3,000 percent since its launch in 2004.

The most popular content for Buckeye VOD is stored using SeaChange MediaServer FMS 200 flash memory-based servers, while long-tail material is stored on HDS 601 hybrid disk-based servers. The new servers add more than 7,000 streams to Buckeye’s VOD capacity, which is managed by a newly deployed version of Axiom On Demand software, SeaChange’s open content delivery platform.

“The combination of SeaChange flash servers to stream our hottest content, coupled with the hybrid disk servers operating in a centralized capacity, forms an ideal storage and streaming architecture,” said Jim Brown, Director of Engineering, Buckeye CableSystem. “Upgrading the intelligence of the Axiom On Demand software has enabled us to build an incredibly robust platform on which to roll out our HD VOD offering and ensures that our customers enjoy a quality viewing experience every time.”
