Vidéotron to upgrade VOD service

Briefs | 01/25/2008 12:53 pm EST

Vidéotron ltée has announced that it will use Georgia-based Concurrent's MediaHawk Back Office Software Suite (MHBOSS) to upgrade and expand its on-demand service. The Quebec cableco will test the system over the next two months, with plans to implement the system later in the year. "When we began plans to upgrade our VOD system, we realized we needed a more scalable back office based on open standards," said Alain Boissonnault, principal director, development of video technologies, Videotron. "Concurrent's new MHBOSS is highly scalable and supports any next-generation applications we may be considering for the future, such as time-shifted TV." The MHBOSS system enables operators to deploy new services such as time-shifted TV and DVR in a phased manner without any service interruptions.
