This article reports that Charter Communications has upgraded its video-on-demand (VOD) platform in Saint Louis, Missouri essentially replacing existing VOD gear from Concurrent Computer Corp. with servers and software from rival vendor C-COR Inc., Charter has since said it plans to redeploy the Concurrent gear in another market vet to be disclosed. It marks the second time Charter has changed out its video-on-demand infrastructure in the St. Louis system-once because of necessity, and now once by choice, apparently. Before awarding its headquarters system to Concurrent, Charter used servers and back office software from Diva Systems, a soup-to-nuts VOD vendor that went bankrupt in May 2002.
