The article reports that Time Warner Cable Inc. has launched "Start Over," a service that enables VOD customers to restart select shows that are already in progress. The first site to enjoy the new service is Irmo, South Carolina, where 10,000 customers are the first to drive Start Over. One key element of the system is the Real Time Catcher (RTC), supplied in Time Warner's initial Start Over market by Concurrent Computer Corp. The RTC handles the real-time ingest of the content that is poured into the VOD system for Start Over. At the site in South Carolina, Time Warner is using five RTCs, with each one supporting 15 simultaneous ingest channels.
