MIAMI — SeaChange International Inc. has made “a significant deployment” of its new cFlow video solutions portfolio with Atlantic Broadband, the country’s ninth largest cable operator. The new Internet Protocol Video On Demand service is now available in Atlantic Broadband’s Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine service areas, with deployments planned for its other markets including Miami Beach, Fla., by year’s end.
Featuring the cFlow video portfolio’s cContent and cBridge elements, the new system coexists with legacy HFC/QAM VOD, enabling Atlantic Broadband to leverage legacy investments while providing the infrastructure for smart, scalable IP VOD offerings into the future. The system was engineered with Concurrent Technology Inc. to include their content delivery, transcode, and storage solutions.
“IP presents infinite opportunities for the enhanced delivery and personalization of video-on-demand, and we are excited to offer customers this new experience with SeaChange’s IP VOD technology,” said Atlantic Broadband VP/Products & Programming Heather McCallion. We look forward to working with the teams at SeaChange and Concurrent to deploy this platform across the Atlantic Broadband footprint throughout 2018, and to continue our video platform evolution.”
SeaChange VP/Marketing Kurt Michel added, “The SeaChange cContent and cBridge solutions facilitate the transition to IP required by forward-thinking service providers by offering advanced functionality and scalability, eliminating complexity, and integrating with media delivery technologies such as those from Concurrent. With its SeaChange + Concurrent platform, Atlantic Broadband is now offering these advanced video services for customers to enjoy.”
