Concurrent Launches MediaHawk Back Office Software for VOD

Concurrent introduced its next-generation Business Management System -- the "MediaHawk" On-Demand Back Office Software Suite (MHBOSS) for VOD.

MHBOSS is built on Oracle's 10g database and Real Application Clusters (RAC) and is designed for on-demand applications such as time-shifted TV and nDVR. As more subscribers are added and on-demand utilization rises, the capacity of MHBOSS can be increased by adding additional computing and storage modules. The system supports automatic data replication and load balancing capabilities. Content libraries can be expanded and user generated content can be added without limit. The open architecture allows interoperability with multiple VOD server vendors and numerous software applications through industry standard interfaces like XML and SOAP, and provides web services for reporting, subscription management, billing and any other applications that require information from the back office.

"MHBOSS was designed to address the latest trends in relational database and Internet technologies while anticipating the future," said Michael Pasquinilli, director of advanced engineering, Concurrent.
