J:COM, Japan’s Largest Cable Operator, Launches TV Everywhere to 2.5 Million Customers Using Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX

Company has deployed Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX unified content delivery solution to deliver multi-screen video-on-demand services to mobile devices and personal computers.
Atlanta(8/22/2012) -

Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in video and media data solutions, announced that Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM, JASDAQ: 4817), the largest multiple system operator (MSO) in Japan, has deployed Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX unified content delivery solution to deliver multi-screen video-on-demand services to mobile devices and personal computers.  The new TV Everywhere service, branded “Xvie”, allows J:COM subscribers to view "J:COM On Demand” video programming anywhere, anytime, on a wide range of IP connected consumer electronics devices, including Apple iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. This service allows programs to be started on one screen, paused, and continued on any other screen, enabling seamless video viewing on-the-go.   

As the world’s first unified video delivery solution, Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX is designed to support delivery to any screen, over any network from a common software solution.  J:COM also uses the MediaHawk platform to support traditional TV-VOD and time-shifted TV services for cable set-top boxes.

“J:COM was interested in deploying a flexible, high performance HTTP delivery solution that could help us support next generation TV Everywhere services,” said Hidetaka Haga, manager of Service Development for J:COM. “Concurrent enabled us to easily expand our video-on-demand services to connected devices using the same MediaHawk VX software platform we use to support our set-top box based customers.  By extending our reach beyond the TV to a new array of video screens, we can tap into additional sources of revenue and enable our customers to take advantage of J:COM’s video services in new ways.  We believe Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX is a compelling solution that satisfies the specific needs of pay TV operators to deliver a TV quality viewing experience to subscribers on any device.”

Concurrent’s president and chief executive officer Dan Mondor said, “We are excited to be working closely with J:COM on their multi-screen initiatives and video-on-demand service expansion.  Concurrent’s mission is to provide innovative and practical solutions that enable pay TV operators to generate new revenue by expanding their services to new screens.  We believe J:COM’s selection of the MediaHawk VX platform is an excellent showcase of our capabilities and expertise in delivering premium quality video to any screen, over any network. Our flexible software solutions support ever-changing market demands, providing greater value to our customers and their subscribers.”
