The article discusses the deployment issues of multi-screen video delivery. Topics include the elimination of adaptive streaming of the buffering process of Internet videos, the capability of Harmonic's MediaPrism platform to transcode video content to Internet Protocol devices such as microcomputers and iPhones, and the acquisition of SeaChange International of Mobix. Also discussed is the addition of RGB Networks of a transcoding module blade on its Video Multiprocessing Gateaway.
