By Stephen Brown | | 0
CDN video delivery is a very important aspect of website acceleration and content delivery. With many high profile online video services, such as Vimeo and Netflix, racking up a large number of viewers each month and also producing high quality original content, the need for high-speed video delivery and specialist CDN providers is greater than ever.
As part of the drive to improve CDN video delivery performance for their clients, SeaChange International and Concurrent have partnered to supply a joint software and content delivery network based-technology to leading video service providers in North America.
SeaChange is a multiscreen TV software platform that facilitates the delivery of subscriber services to TV set-tops, tablets, smartphones, OTT players and other IP-connected devices. Concurrent, on the other hand, has created a specialised content delivery network that that supports internet-contented devices and TV set-top boxes from a common platform. This CDN video delivery network enables commercial video services to be streamed to users over either fixed line or mobile broadband networks.
