Edgeware, a specialist in video delivery networks, has announced that Cincinnati Bell has deployed its Video Consolidation Platform (VCP), including its highly-optimised CDN caching and distribution capabilities. The VCP delivers advanced network-based VoD and time-shift services, including catch-up and start-over TV, while enhancing existing live IPTV services with dramatically improved channel change times. Edgeware enables Cincinnati Bell to deliver these services to both STB and the latest generation multiscreen devices from a single, consolidated platform.
“We’re continually working to exceed our customers’ expectations in this fast-changing space,” said Tom Simpson, Cincinnati Bell’s chief technology officer. “Edgeware’s VCP solution will help us further enhance the customer experience.”
