Concurrent Showcases 4th Generation Technology at SCTE's Cable-Tec

6/14/2004 - Concurrent Computer Corporation (NASDAQ: CCUR) a worldwide leader of on-demand technology that is shaping the future of television, announced exhibit plans for the Society of Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Show, June 16-18 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Proven Technology Supporting the Complexities of On-Demand
As more MSOs roll out more forms of Video-On-Demand (VOD), the broadband operator must manage more content, coming in more frequently, over more signal collection points – or the “ingress” of content. To offer new and compelling VOD services to their customers, the broadband operator must be able to successfully ingest new movies and other programming into the system architecture while simultaneously streaming content out to requesting customers. At the show, Concurrent will highlight the ability of its MediaHawk® 4th Generation (4G) On-Demand Platform to uniquely separate storage, streaming and content ingest to meet the needs of this ever-expanding on-demand environment.
