SeaChange International has unveiled its flash memory solution for on-demand television. The new MediaServer Flash Streamer is a 100 percent flash memory-based solution that completely decouples on-demand streaming from disk-based content storage, enabling television operators to push their streaming resources to the network edge and to deploy centralized content libraries.

Available in the third quarter of 2007, a single 2RU Flash Streamer provides 300 hours of storage and 1000 streams.

It perfects a new solution for diskless edge streaming at the network edge for the most popular content in the long tail, thereby enabling centralized storage and storage management at headends.
