Cisco unveils VOD with nPVR and ad insertion

Cisco has substantially built on its acquisition of Scientific Atlanta last year with this week's announcement of a VOD software platform that includes networked personal video recording (nPVR) functionality and ad insertion capabilities. The platform is a repackaged version of the technology it obtained through its $92 million acquisition of server company Arroyo in August. According to the company, the platform sits atop a network of video servers, each of which can ingest up to 400 channels of video at a time, and can store up to 12,000 hours of content. Nine of these servers can pump out 5,000 simultaneous streams, Cisco says.
