I would like to start with some comments on our progress over the past year. After Emory’s review of the fourth quarter and full year results, I will provide comments on the steps we are taking to strengthen the business going forward.
Concurrent enjoyed a year of tremendous success in both on-demand and real time. Regarding on-demand we log several major wins and expansions, the strong indication of performance and value of our products and our customer support capabilities. Activity in the North American market was robust. Early in the year we announced a long-term master purchase agreement in which Cox Communications selected Concurrent as their exclusive video server vendor displacing our competitor.
We had increased activity with Time Warner, displacing competitors at several sites including the recent win of the Los Angeles and San Diego markets which we believe will comprise the world’s largest on-demand deployment when completed.
Other noteworthy business included the Orlando and Tampa divisions of bright house. Notably we believe the deployment at Tampa is the world’s largest start over market. We also had significant back office business with the deployment of our MH BOSS back office in conjunction with expansions at Videotron in Canada and J-Com in Japan.
We are also encouraged by increased on-demand opportunities in the international markets. During the past year Concurrent captured new on-demand opportunities around the globe with wins in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Our previously announced initiatives to expand international sales and marketing efforts has began to pay-off with increased business and greater recognition in the rapidly growing international marketplace.
Our product development strategies are continuing to lead the market. Our MediaHawk Content delivery system set new industry benchmarks for performance and reliability. As a result we believe we are the market share leader for Time Warner’s, start over service due to the superior inject capabilities of our solution. The MediaCache 1000, the first commercially deployed solid state on-demand storage solution based on the flash technologies has gained strong market acceptance.
Our MH BOSS back office product is gaining traction in several new markets. We announced our NH pilot web offering platform which was deployed by J-Com in Japan. Our product development initiatives are aligned with the emerging market trends such as Network DVR, Advanced Advertising and HD content which we expect will drive inject streaming storage and analytics requirements to new levels. We are confident about our growth prospects in this market
Now on to our real-time product line, we continue to identify new opportunities including design and simulation applications in the aerospace and automotive industries. Our products were deployed for a variety of mission critical commercial and military applications with leading international businesses including Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Saab, Hyundai and the aerospace divisions of Mitsubishi and Kawasaki to name a few.
