With our continued investments in multi-screen, multi-experience, addressable, targeted and coordinated advertising, I envisage the day when consumers will fast-forward through recorded content to view their personalized ads."
SeaChange won its first Emmy in 2001 for pioneering developments in shared video data storage systems. The Company earned its second Emmy in 2004 for development, productization and commercialization of technologies leading to large scale deployment of video-on-demand television.
