Seachange's VOD System enables broadband operators to easily initiate and enhance on-demand programming services.
ntl has chosen SeaChange International and its video-on-demand (VOD) system to support its impending on-demand television service.
Initial launch of ntlâ€™s on-demand service is slated for the first quarter of 2005, making it Europeâ€™s first large-scale, commercial cable on-demand service.
SeaChangeâ€™s VOD System - a technology platform incorporating its MediaCluster servers, end-to-end automation software and real-time broadcast recording gear enables broadband operators to initiate and enhance on-demand programming services.
This standards-based platform supports an array of third-party software and network components, including ntlâ€™s digital set top boxes from Pace and Samsung. SeaChangeâ€™s on-demand partner, London-based programming and content provider On Demand Group (ODG), is also collaborating with ntl to enable the project.
