SeaChange Play-to-Air Platform

SeaChange International (NASDAQ: SEAC), one of the leading suppliers to television broadcasters globally, announced today that Polimer TV has deployed a new play-to-air platform using its Broadcast MediaLibrary/MediaClient (BML/MCL) architecture.

The operator delivers 24-hour information and entertainment programming via satellite to Southern India and to the state of Tamilnadu through a cable network.

“The SeaChange platform allows us to meet our current requirements such as multiformat back-to-back playout of clips while giving us the flexibility to easily expand in the future,” said P.V. Kalyanasundaram, Chairman & Managing Director, Polimer TV. “When the time comes, we will be able to add clustering as our operation grows and also transition to high definition as necessary.”

SeaChange’s BML/MCL architecture comprises distinct capabilities that have made it the foundation for over 100 broadcasters worldwide: Broadcast MediaLibrary servers, which cost-efficiently provide fault-resilient storage of any type of media file; and highly flexible SeaChange MediaClient software codecs, which support a wide range of formats to simplify a broadcast operation’s workflow. Polimer’s MCL codecs are controlled via a HiTech active filer remote controller, which facilitates quick ingest and playback capabilities.

SeaChange’s range of proven content storage, streaming and management solutions, including its latest Broadcast MediaLibrary/Broadcast MediaClient play-to-air storage system and SD/HD software codecs, will be on display during NAB2008 at booth SU12011, April 14-17 in Las Vegas.
