C-COR Intros n5C
Operators that serve smaller markets or communities will now be able to launch video on demand (VOD), digital program insertion (DPI) and advanced advertising, network personal video recording (nPVR), and switched digital video using a unified low cost video server platform. The new video server leverages proven third generation server technology and On Demand application features to offer a competitive entry point for operators serving communities of 16,000 customers or less. The server is available for deployment in Q4 2006.
C-COR's n5C employs components of the company's proven n5 On Demand server platform, including the nABLET complete back office management system, and customizes it to meet the specific demands faced by smaller markets. The lower power consuming footprint offers an expandable capacity of 1500 hours of storage and 960 streams to keep up with customer demands and growing content libraries. The server offers support for both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
"Independent cable operators that service rural and smaller communities are facing enormous competitive pressures from satellite and telco providers," said Matthew M. Polka, president and CEO, American Cable Association. "To stay competitive, small market operators need to differentiate themselves with the latest video services and technology, but at a cost point that makes sense for the size of their markets. We're pleased the industry is targeting products that will benefit the independent cable television business and the 8 million subscribers they serve across the U.S."
"C-COR has long valued its partnerships with smaller broadband operators in successfully delivering profitable advertising and On Demand services," said Michael Pohl, president, Global Strategies, C-COR. "We use that experience to address the architecture and subscriber demands of smaller markets so they can take advantage of next-generation services such as switched digital video, nPVR, and advanced advertising at a price point that maximizes their return on investment."
