NEW ORLEANS, LA – Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX:VCM) announced today that Conway Corporation, a North American cable provider, has selected Vecima’s MediaScaleX™ solution to power its new IPTV multiscreen service. Moving from QAM to IP delivery systems, Conway Corp will be able to introduce new services to subscribers on any screen, without disruption. Vecima’s highly flexible and scalable software solutions integrated with a wide range of systems ensure a quick-to-market roll out.

“The transition from QAM to IP will be a critical step in the evolution of our video delivery network and it was important to find a partner that could not only guide us through this transition, but also provide a high level of technical expertise. Additionally, we were focused on a wide range of functionalities, including multi-screen experiences, time-shift TV capabilities, nDVR, 4k content, and transcoding, which all have to scale and seamlessly integrate with our Next Generation user interface, powered by Enghouse Networks,” said Conway Corp Chief Technology Officer, Jason Hansen. “After an exhaustive RFP process, it was clear that Vecima was the company that was going to deliver.”

By selecting the complete end-to-end MediaScaleX solution, Conway Corp is able to leverage functionality only available in Vecima’s integrated platform. Hyperconverged architectures enable MediaScaleX // Origin™ to process on MediaScaleX // Storage™ nodes for a smaller footprint, while automated in-service upgrades and configuration management reduce service costs. Support of Conway Corp’s Next Generation Video platform, utilizing an analytics platform, is a vital component of the solution. MediaScaleX // IQ™ will monitor streams and server status using real-time data and graphs, easily administer CDN servers and configurations, offer session-based metrics to identify risks, and take proactive corrective actions that will benefit the consumer experience. The MediaScaleX // Transcode™ platform can be configured for any bitrate, resolution, aspect ratio, or frame rate, with single-step channel publish functionality to MediaScaleX // Origin.

“Our solutions are designed for future scale, and we’re excited to work with Conway Corp on migrating their existing systems to new streaming formats,” said Clay McCreery, Chief Revenue Officer at Vecima. “We’re proud to support their commitment to providing customers the latest, best-in-class video streaming experience.”

Vecima will showcase their end-to-end solutions portfolio at SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® 2019, Booth 1529, in New Orleans, Louisiana this week. To schedule an appointment, click here.
