ATLANTA -- February 13, 2013

Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in multiscreen video solutions and
media data intelligence, today announced it has been ranked as the leader in
video servers by independent research firm Current Analysis. In the firm’s
latest On Demand Video Servers Product Assessment, Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX™
Unified Video Solution compared favorably to competing systems from Cisco,
Edgeware, ARRIS, and Harmonic.

The assessment highlights Concurrent’s MediaHawk VX’s leadership among
on-demand video servers in scalability, reliability, functionality, green
design and market traction. Current Analysis cited Concurrent’s high stream
density, automated fault resilience features, and multiscreen video
functionality as reasons for its top ranking. With respect to multi-screen
support, features such as integrated dynamic content repackaging and support
for open CDN interface standards such as ATIS IIF, were highlighted as key
differentiators.

“On-demand video servers are enabling cable operators to adapt to changing
subscriber consumption behaviors by supporting requirements for performance,
scale and the monetization of video consumption across the growing
multi-screen market,” said Ron Westfall, Research Director, Service Provider
Infrastructure, of Current Analysis. “In our close evaluation of on-demand
video servers, we found Concurrent provides a differentiated approach to video
delivery and can uniquely invoke a performance benefit over rivals by offering
superior and differentiated accuracy, scalability and military-grade
guarantees of performance to its customers.”

is the world’s leading unified video server solution. MediaHawk VX features
simultaneous support for traditional TVs and Internet-connected devices in one
