Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR) , a global leader in unified content delivery, video analytics, and real-time Linux(R) solutions, today announced it has been granted two new patents for its unique resilient video streaming technology. U.S. Patent numbers 8,943,218 and 8,972,600 describe how media servers can function collaboratively in order to create a self-healing content delivery architecture. Using the patented methods, video servers can rapidly detect fault conditions in a server array that could impact active video streams. Examples of fault conditions can include network issues, power outages, and hardware problems. Once a fault condition is detected, servers in the array instantly re-route active streams to other healthy servers in the same array in order to prevent interruption of the consumer’s viewing session. Assuming there is sufficient capacity in the array to support the full stream load, the active streams continue to be delivered seamlessly.

“Reliability and consistency are mission-critical requirements in today’s increasingly competitive multi-screen video services market,” said James Brickmeier, SVP of Strategic Marketing at Concurrent. “Concurrent’s resilient streaming technology enables service providers using our UpShift CDN solution to deliver a more reliable video service and a significantly better quality of experience to their customers. We are pleased to receive two new patents for our innovative streaming method and to continue expanding our portfolio of intellectual property related to multi-screen video.”

Concurrent’s UpShiftTM unified content delivery solution is the first CDN in the world to include automated stream resiliency features. The company’s software based CDN platform supports video delivery to any device, over any network from a common solution architecture, enabling service providers to support today’s video business, while also delivering the IP video powered viewing experience of tomorrow. The company continues to develop its IP video patent portfolio, with recent grants for network DVR technology, intelligent content management, and demand based edge caching. Its UpShift solution has been deployed by many of the world’s leading cable and telecommunications service providers, including Cox Communications, Kabel Deutschland, and Time Warner Cable.
