Concurrent has been awarded a patent for technology that is foundational for network DVR services. The patented technology solves the challenges of resource-allocation and management for the storage and distribution of content from a centralized, network-based system. Using factors such as demand, consumption level and timeliness of content, Concurrent’s technology enables automatic prioritization of resources for the ingest and delivery of content.
Today, video distribution, storage and data access management across multiple screens are not tightly coordinated, resulting in potentially reduced network capacity. Concurrent’s technology enables the scheduling of all content that is ingested and distributed, as well as the management of network resources to ensure the most effective and efficient distribution of content.
Concurrent’s newly awarded patent is complementary to existing patents related to systems and methods of matching, bundling and delivering stored content with stored advertisements based on user requests.
