Anticipating demand among cable operators for multi-screen processing software, SeaChange International (Nasdaq: SEAC) has upgraded its video back office product line so service providers can "take a currently deployed system that's delivering video to the TV and expand it so that it's one that can deliver video to TV, PC and mobile devices and streaming as well as download," Steve Davi, senior vice president of software engineering told FierceCable.
SeaChange will show the new upgrade at this week's SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans, he said.
Davi said the new product is intended to upgrade and supplement, not replace, existing cable backoffice equipment to handle anticipated demand for multi-screen demand.
"Our approach is for operators to not actually remove what they have already for video delivery to the TV but expand it," Davis said. "The whole thing is meant to be an evolution to being able to deliver to new devices in new mechanisms without having to replace what's already there."
