SeaChange works with Cisco for new VOD compatibility

At the Cable Show last week in Las Vegas, SeaChange International demonstrated how cable service providers could deploy Cisco Content Delivery System (CDS) video servers with SeaChange’s new Axiom Core 4.0, a video-on-demand (VOD) infrastructure software.

In addition to integrating Axiom and the CDS video servers, Cisco and SeaChange said they planned to open interfaces for VOD back-office operations and servers, enabling a wide range of service providers to take advantage of standards-based VOD architectures.

Introduced last week was Axiom Core 4.0, an open software solution for VOD services. The new version automates and optimizes the use of streaming, storage and network resources to ensure service to millions of TV subscribers.

The Cisco CDS is composed of a network of appliances known as Content Delivery Engines (CDEs), which implement content storage, ingest, distribution, personalization and streaming capabilities. Groups of CDEs form a virtual platform for deployment of a variety of Content Delivery Applications (CDAs).

In various combinations, CDAs help enable service providers to deploy multiple services such as targeted ad insertion in broadcast video and VOD; program time-shifting; local programming; long tail content; and public, educational and government channels.
