Concurrent Fuels Progress with Another Video Patent

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--

Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in multi-screen video delivery and media data intelligence solutions, has been awarded a U.S. Patent for a method of creating visually appealing consumer user interfaces for TV, PC, web and mobile video services. U.S. Patent No. 8,763,044 defines a process for assembling portions of multiple images to form a new image. The portions, which may be taken from video clips, still images, advertisements, or other images, are combined together to create a new integrated image. The new integrated image can be used to generate graphically-rich user interfaces for TV and multi-screen video applications such as network-based digital video recording, video on-demand, and live broadcast television. Entitled "Method, Apparatus, and System for Preparing Images for Integration and Combining Images into an Integrated Image", Concurrent's newest patent centers on a key area of focus for service providers, which is to improve the consumer user interface for premium video services.

"We are proud to announce our fifth patent award in the past 12 months", said Bob Chism, Chief Technology Officer at Concurrent. "Our patent awards are a tribute to the creativity of our team and the spirit of innovation we foster here at Concurrent.
