Road Runner Gets Real

Time Warner Cable said Thursday that it has licensed RealNetworks Inc.’s "Real 10" media-delivery platform and "Helix" media-delivery and application software to support its Road Runner high-speed-data service.

The MSO said it will deploy Helix universal servers throughout its network to manage Internet media and to deliver streaming audio and video content to Road Runner subscribers.

Time Warner added that Real 10 -- which includes the newly available "RealAudio 10" and "RealVideo 10" -- offers performance and quality enhancements over previous RNI compression technologies.
