J:COM launches TV Everywhere with Concurrent

August 23, 2012

Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM), the largest multiple system operator (MSO) in Japan, has deployed Concurrent’s MediaHawkTM VX unified content delivery solution to deliver multi-screen VoD services to mobile devices and personal computers.

The new TV Everywhere service, branded “Xvie”, allows J:COM subscribers to view “J:COM On Demand” video programming anywhere, anytime, on a wide range of IP connected consumer electronics devices, including Apple iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. This service allows programmes to be started on one screen, paused, and continued on any other screen, enabling seamless video viewing on-the-go.

Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX is designed to support delivery to any screen, over any network from a common software solution. J:COM also uses the MediaHawk platform to support traditional TV-VOD and time-shifted TV services for cable set-top boxes.
