ACTON, Mass. -- CABLEVISION® Mexico has become the world’s first digital cable television company to enhance its video-on-demand operations with the unprecedented reliability, flexibility and economy of SeaChange flash memory storage and streaming. Last month, Mexico’s largest digital cable operator switched on SeaChange International’s (NASDAQ: SEAC - News) revolutionary MediaServer Flash Memory Streamers, seamlessly extending CABLEVISION®’s well established SeaChange Axiom software and disk-based server operations.

SeaChange’s MediaServer Flash Memory Streamer is a 100-percent flash memory-based solution that completely decouples on-demand streaming from disk-based content storage, enabling CABLEVISION® Mexico to push its streaming resources to the network edge and meet its goal of growing its centralized content library to 14,000 hours of movies and television programs. The MediaServer Flash Memory Streamer is also the optimal solution for time-shifted television, providing up to 4,400 hours of clustered storage in a single footprint which, in contrast to DRAM, retains real-time ingested content in spite of server failures.

“On-demand has driven CABLEVISION®’s digital uptake at a remarkable clip, so we’ve been very aggressive about growing our library and streaming capabilities to meet subscriber expectations,” said Jean Paul Broc, CEO, CABLEVISION® Mexico. “We identified flash memory as the very means to help us stay on target and on budget. Once again, SeaChange was in the position to bring pragmatic innovation to market first.”

“Television is changing dramatically around the world and CABLEVISION® Mexico’s operations stand out as a leading example,” said Yefim Nivoro, vice president of sales, Latin America, SeaChange. “We are very proud to provide breakthroughs like our Flash Memory Streamers, as well as complete software and expert services to help customers like CABLEVISION® Mexico capture success.”
