VOD is the business for SeaChange

Shipments of SeaChange Internationalís VOD flash server product helped produce Q4 revenues of $54 million for the company that straddles both hardware and software solutions for the on demand market.

Its fiscal fourth quarter for the period ending January 31, 2009 was 13% higher than the equivalent period 12 months previous. Total revenues for the year were $201.8 million, $21.9m or 12% higher than for the 2008 fiscal year.
