Morristown Utility Systems of Tennessee has launched video-on-demand services using a small market platform developed by Concurrent Computer Corp.
The utility company introduced VOD earlier this month, and is offering “hundreds” of hours of on-demand movies and other content from basic and premium cable networks. Morristown Utility Systems, which provides water and electric services to about 14,000 homes and businesses, is starting construction on a new fiber-to-the-home network.
Concurrent said its Small Markets VOD system is designed for operators with up to 4,800 digital subs. The introductory platform, which can scale streaming and storage separately, supports up to 480 simultaneous streams, and 860 hours of MPEG-2-encoded content.
