NOS Enhances User Experience with Concurrent’s MediaScaleX Platform

Publish date:

Concurrent Technology Inc., a Vecima Company (TSX: VCM), and NOS have announced an expanded partnership, enabling NOS to continue its leadership in delivering cutting edge media and entertainment offerings to all of Portugal. As part of the agreement, NOS will deploy Concurrent’s MediaScaleXÔ platform, enhancing user experiences for Cloud DVR and Live TV delivered via IP.

MediaScaleX is a highly scalable and flexible media processing, storage, and delivery platform deployable in more places and across more ecosystems than any other vendor in the industry. “Concurrent’s legacy MediaHawk CDN and AquariÔ storage products were crucial in enabling the first generation of NOS’s transformative user experience. We’re looking forward to deploying MediaScaleX to deliver on the next phase of our initiative,” says José Pascoal, Service Platforms Director at NOS.

MediaScaleX // STORAGEÔ, the next generation of Concurrent’s Aquari software defined storage platform, is expanding the performance and scale of NOS’s existing deployment through the implementation of a flash based rolling buffer for time-shifted TV services. In addition to this, MediaScaleX // STORAGE continues to change the game by offering the latest generation hardware platforms with the ability to mix drive and node types. “Concurrent’s media storage flexibility has been one of the reasons we’re so successful with our Cloud DVR offering,” said José Pascoal, Service Platforms Director at NOS.

MediaScaleX // ORIGINÔ continues Concurrent’s long history of award winning innovation in the content packaging space. NOS selected the Concurrent origin because of their commitment to DASH, CMAF compliant egress, and live-to-glass latency reduction. Origin and packaging functionality is the heart of any modern media delivery platform. These features, combined with the long list of legacy functionality Concurrent has delivered over the past several years, are crucial to NOS.

MediaScaleX // CACHEÔ offers content and service providers the world’s highest density caching solution in a software-based, high density streaming server with integrated intelligent caching features. With support for a wide variety of content formats and streaming protocols, it supports delivery to mobile devices, smart TVs, as well as classic set-top boxes simultaneously. “As NOS transforms our services offerings, it’s very important to have a caching solution that supports all of the latest architectures and devices at very high scale,” says José Pascoal, Service Platforms Director at NOS.

“NOS continues to demonstrate their commitment to industry leading innovation in the media space. We remain committed to their vision, and are honored to be their partner now and well into the future,” said Clay McCreery, Chief Revenue Officer at Concurrent.
