Multiscreen video delivery and media data intelligence provider Concurrent launched a new training and certification program that aims to enable MVPDs to launch, operate and maintain the latest multiscreen video technologies. Concurrent’s customers include Time Warner Cable, Cox and Charter.

The program targets engineers interested in improving their understanding of IP content delivery networks, adaptive bit-rate technologies, over-the-top solution architectures and multi-screen video applications such as network-based digital video recording. “Our service provider customers are increasingly interested in launching their own over-the-top services and gaining a competitive edge in the multi-screen video market,” said Rick Lopes, vice president, services and solutions engineering at Concurrent. “With a more knowledgeable engineering workforce, service providers can better execute their multi-screen video strategies, speed their time to market for new applications and deliver the best possible consumer experience on every screen.”
