ATLANTA—April 16, 2012 — Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in video and media data solutions, has enhanced its eFactor™ product suite to include industry standard AES-128 encryption, allowing service and content providers to protect their content when consumers view it on connected devices.
The addition of AES-128 encryption enables integration with leading digital rights management (DRM) technologies. Concurrent has completed integration with the award-winning Motorola SecureMedia® Encryptonite ONE™ HLS+, providing Hollywood-approved secure content distribution.
eFactor simplifies the complex task of delivering multi-format live or on-demand video to a wide variety of connected devices for content delivery networks and TV service providers. The newly released protection module works in concert with Concurrent’s eFactor Transmux module, the industry’s first software-based dynamic repackaging solution. Launched in the summer of 2011 and deployed in a production CDN environment later in 2011, eFactor Transmux enables on-the-fly repackaging of a single video asset to today’s market-leading HTTP adaptive bitrate formats.
eFactor is available as a software development kit (SDK) or as a complete software application, providing customers with flexible deployment options. As an SDK, eFactor can be installed on hardware that already exists within the CDN, reducing the capital investment and space required to deploy the solution. In addition, by eliminating the need to preprocess content into multiple formats, eFactor can reduce the investment required in transcoders, storage, and network transport equipment.
“Our customers are focused on generating incremental revenue through the deployment of premium content services to connected devices. eFactor is designed to address the needs of both service providers and content owners by reducing the cost and complexity of hosting multi-screen video while ensuring premium content is protected” said Jim Denenny, Concurrent’s general manager and vice president of online media solutions. “From the start, eFactor Transmux was designed to integrate dynamic repackaging features into the content delivery infrastructure, eliminating the need for dedicated hardware. Our software-based approach generates a much better return on investment for our customers than traditional appliance based solutions.”
Concurrent will discuss eFactor at the Hewlett-Packard booth (#N5106), at 9:30 a.m. PST on Monday, April 16th, and 12:00 noon PST on Wednesday, April 18th at the 2012 NAB conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
