The newest addition to SeaChange’s series of Flash memory-based video servers, the Universal Media Streamer (UMS), adds integrated support for multiple streaming formats such as constant and variable bit rate SD and HD, HTTP and Adobe Flash among others, making it ideal for multi-screen video delivery to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.

While eliminating spinning disks from the edge of CDN infrastructures and reducing the costs of disk resource and maintenance, the UMS is also unrivaled in stream capacity per rack unit performance. The UMS is available in 3TB and 6TB configurations that can store up to 1,500 and 3,000 hours of MPEG2 video, respectively.

Unique to the UMS is its intelligent block-caching algorithm, which caches frequently accessed blocks of a video asset to minimize access to the CDN and maximize Flash memory lifespan, resulting in higher quality of service and operations cost savings.

SeaChange’s answer to the massive storage requirements inherent to multi-screen delivery is the new Universal MediaLibrary, a CDN-class library storage system providing the scalability, density and reliability necessary for 24/7 operation.

The unique chassis design of the UML consists of six blades that are serviceable even while operational. Each blade module contains 12 top-load drive slots that enable simple drive replacement without impacting operations.
