SeaChange Widens Blended Entertainment Scope with Multiscreen Innovations at Cable-Tec Expo

ACTON, Mass., Sept. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cable-Tec Expo booth 1145 -- This week at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo '14, SeaChange International, Inc. (Nasdaq:SEAC) will feature multiscreen software and service innovations to expand the scope of entertainment that blends TV and OTT. Cable service providers will experience firsthand the new capabilities spanning SeaChange's end-to-end solutions from the back office, through the cloud, to subscriber interaction at home and on-the-go.

SeaChange's Converged Content Catalog demonstration will show how the Adrenalin multi-screen television platform can source, prioritize and present hundreds of thousands of content assets including live and time-shifted pay TV and OTT subscription video services in a unified viewing interface. This technology empowers cable service providers to solve for consumers the rising challenge of getting the greatest value and enjoyment from each of their video subscriptions and applications.

"The original goal for multiscreen TV was to extend cable's role in consumer lifestyles as video-capable IP devices gained prominence. Now we're aiming to ensure that service providers can orchestrate blended entertainment experiences that support the many ways consumers choose to obtain and enjoy content," said Alan Hoff, SeaChange VP of Strategic Marketing. "Cable-Tec Expo is the premier showplace for our core customers' next opportunities to innovate, and SeaChange is eager to show how they can grow their domain for a stronger bond with consumers, content owners and advertisers."

Multiscreen with Cloud Deployment Advantages

Demonstrations of SeaChange Cloud Adrenalin will show that service providers can deliver advanced, multiscreen services on a pay-as-you-grow virtualized deployment. Cloud capabilities include the full complement of SeaChange Adrenalin software capabilities for content publishing, delivery, promotions, system monitoring and business analytics. Providers have deployed this open platform in conjunction with the SeaChange Nitro subscriber experience, as well as third-party interfaces. SeaChange's ecosystem of Cloud Adrenalin partners has grown to incorporate a wide range of third parties offering choice in network components, software, applications and content.

The SeaChange Infusion advanced advertising platform also provides cloud deployment advantages for multi-platform advertising operations, from content ingest, placement and playout to delivery of actionable performance analytics. Infusion highlights at Cable-Tec Expo will include ad targeting in linear and on-demand streams on PCs, tablets and TVs.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 24, SeaChange Solutions Architect Gary Hughes will deliver a panel presentation on advertising insertion with the MPEG DASH streaming standard for this year's SCTE Standards Session, which will explore new video coding and transport technologies.

Connected Video Experiences throughout Subscriber Homes

Demonstrations of the SeaChange Nucleus video gateway software will show how service providers can efficiently deliver services such as media sharing, whole home DVR, and advanced guides and apps across every IP device at home. Nucleus breakthroughs at the show will include 4K Ultra High Definition content streaming, and the newest generation Nucleus HTML5 subscriber experience for content navigation and discovery on any device. Leveraging the industry Reference Design Kit (RDK), demonstrations of Nucleus will include integrations with several partners' set-tops and chipsets.
