NOS Enhances User Experience with Concurrent’s MediaScaleX Platform
September 17, 2018 Concurrent Technology Inc., a Vecima Company (TSX: VCM), and NOS have announced an expanded partnership, enabling NOS to continue its leadership in delivering cutting edge media and entertainment offerings to all of Portugal. As part of the agreement, NOS will deploy Concurrent’s MediaScaleX™ platform, enhancing user experiences for Cloud DVR and Live TV delivered via IP.
MediaScaleX is a highly scalable and flexible media processing, storage, and delivery platform deployable in more places and across more ecosystems than any other vendor in the industry. “Concurrent’s legacy MediaHawk CDN and Aquari™ storage products were crucial in enabling the first generation of NOS’s transformative user experience. We’re looking forward to deploying MediaScaleX to deliver on the next phase of our initiative,” says José Pascoal, Service Platforms Director at NOS.
MediaScaleX // Storage™ – the next generation of Concurrent’s Aquari storage platform.MediaScaleX // Storage is a scalable software-defined application that has been designed to make sure the management of content is as easy as possible. Multiple forms of metadata capture enable easy search-and-find functionality and predictive usage analytics means the storage will always have available capacity ahead of demand, instead of needing to reorganize content on the fly. It can be easily deployed on any number of hardware platforms and can use any combination of spinning disks, SSDs and the latest non-volatile memory express (NVMe) drives.
MediaScaleX // Origin™ – continuing a long history of award-winning content packaging innovation. Concurrent’s origin solution looks beyond just the HLS delivery environment, allowing users to also package their OTT programming using DASH and CMAF. Origin provides support for any delivery ecosystem and integrates with all the mainstream DRM providers, so it can be easily deployed into any existing delivery platforms.
MediaScaleX // Cache™ – offering the world’s highest-density, intelligent caching solution. With support for a wide variety of content formats and streaming protocols, Cache supports better simultaneous delivery to mobile devices and smart TVs and set-top boxes. Like MediaScaleX // Origin, it supports various deployment scenarios, including Concurrent’s award-winning, pre-integrated hardware appliances, virtualized environments or as software-only on customers’ chosen hardware.
“NOS continues to demonstrate their commitment to industry leading innovation in the media space. We remain committed to their vision, and are honored to be their partner now and well into the future,” said Clay McCreery, Chief Revenue Officer at Concurrent.
