Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in multi-screen video delivery and media data intelligence solutions, today announced Get, Norway's leading digital television and broadband Internet provider, has selected Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX™ unified content delivery solution to power their “Get TV” online video streaming service. Get will use Concurrent’s latest IP video technology to offer live TV, time-shifted TV, and video-on-demand services to nearly one million customers on tablets, smartphones, PCs, and other Internet connected devices.
“Get is committed to delivering a compelling viewing experience to our customers on every screen,” said Christophe Brod, Vice President of Technical Strategy and Operations at Get. “Concurrent’s multi-screen solutions offer us the versatility and advanced features we need to launch new applications more quickly and easily. With their unified approach to content delivery, Concurrent merges support for multiple video formats and streaming protocols into one software solution. This provides us with a more flexible foundation on which to execute our multi-screen video strategy and launch a whole new range of innovative services.”
Get will employ Concurrent’s origin servers, IP edge streaming servers, and intelligent request router to create a nationwide content delivery network (CDN). They will also use eFactor™, Concurrent’s dynamic content adaptation solution, to repackage, protect, and apply session-based policy controls to video content on-the-fly as it is being streamed. eFactor reduces the number of content format variants required to support a wide variety of consumer electronics devices, making it easier and less costly to deploy multi-screen services.
“We are very excited to work with Get to bring a new generation of multi-screen video services to their customers,” said Jim Marino, Concurrent’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Service. “Our latest IP-CDN technology represents a game changer for operators who want to deliver high quality video streams to consumers on any device, over any network. By infusing eFactor’s dynamic content workflow features into the CDN, we alleviate much of the complexity and cost associated with reaching a seemingly endless array of consumer viewing devices. We look forward to rolling out our latest IP video solutions and showcasing the unique benefits of our unified video solution architecture.”
Concurrent adds Get to a growing list of marquee customers that includes many of the world’s leading multichannel video service providers. The company has been expanding its operations throughout Europe and has scored a number of new design wins and deployments in the region for its MediaHawk VX unified content delivery solution at accounts such as Kabel Deutschland, Virgin Media, ZON, and Vectra.
