Concurrent Ranked as Leader for On Demand Video Servers By Current Analysis

Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in multiscreen video solutions and media data intelligence, today announced it has been ranked as the leader in video servers by independent research firm Current Analysis. In the firm’s latest On Demand Video Servers Product Assessment, Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX™ Unified Video Solution compared favorably to competing systems from Cisco, Edgeware, ARRIS, and Harmonic.

The assessment highlights Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX’s leadership among on-demand video servers in scalability, reliability, functionality, green design and market traction. Current Analysis cited Concurrent’s high stream density, automated fault resilience features, and multiscreen video functionality as reasons for its top ranking. With respect to multi-screen support, features such as integrated dynamic content repackaging and support for open CDN interface standards such as ATIS IIF, were highlighted as key differentiators.

“On-demand video servers are enabling cable operators to adapt to changing subscriber consumption behaviors by supporting requirements for performance, scale and the monetization of video consumption across the growing multi-screen market,” said Ron Westfall, Research Director, Service Provider Infrastructure, of Current Analysis. “In our close evaluation of on-demand video servers, we found Concurrent provides a differentiated approach to video delivery and can uniquely invoke a performance benefit over rivals by offering superior and differentiated accuracy, scalability and military-grade guarantees of performance to its customers.”

With more than 2.4 million streams shipped worldwide, Concurrent’s MediaHawk is the world’s leading unified video server solution. MediaHawk VX features simultaneous support for traditional TVs and Internet-connected devices in one easy-to-use system.

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
