"The incredible growth of user-generated content has resulted in consumers quickly becoming the largest producers of video content. On YouTube alone, according to a recent study from comScore, 26 hours of video are uploaded every minute. Concurrent's vision is to enable the delivery of consumer and professional content to multiple screens on a single video platform that is easy to deploy and easy to manage," said Dan Mondor, president and CEO of Concurrent. "We continue to innovate to create the highly reliable, TV-quality viewing experience that enhances subscriber experience and provides new revenue-generating opportunities for our customers. We are very pleased to be unveiling our next generation of video solutions at this year's Cable-Tec show."

Concurrent's new video delivery solutions streamline the ingest and distribution process between broadcast and Internet content providers, advertisers and service providers. Cable operators can deploy Concurrent's latest technology to upgrade existing VOD systems or as part of a new system installation in order to rapidly address these high-growth market opportunities across multiple screens.

Concurrent will be demonstrating a number of ground-breaking solutions, including:

  • The capability for subscribers to upload user-generated content (UGC), like independent films and music videos, and publish it to on-demand  and local broadcast platforms  for multiple screens
  • The capability for hyper-local content to be self-uploaded, for example, by high schools (sporting events), churches (weekly services) or civic groups to be published to on-demand  and local broadcast platforms  for multiple screens
  • The ability to monetize local content by making it possible for local advertisers, like restaurants or specialty shops, to create and upload their own ads for broadcast playout and VOD insertion.  
  • Targeted, Internet-style banner ad-insertion into popular web videos and user-generated content delivered via on-demand and local broadcast onto multiple screens.
  • Customizable web interface that enables deeper interaction for a service provider with its subscribers and advertisers.
  • Video ingest and delivery for applications across multiple screens
