     I, William C. Styslinger, III, President of SeaChange International, Inc.
(the "Corporation"), a corporation organized and existing under and by virtue of
the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, do hereby certify that the
Certificate of Incorporation of SeaChange International, Inc., as amended,
originally incorporated under the name Seaview Technology, Inc., has been

and, as amended and restated, is set forth in its entirety as follows:

     SECOND.   The address of the registered office of the Corporation in the

     THIRD.    The nature of the business or purposes to be conducted or
promoted is to engage in any lawful act or activity for which corporations may
be organized under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.
 
     FOURTH.   The total number of shares of all classes of capital stock which
the Corporation shall have authority to issue is 55,000,000 shares, consisting
of 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock with a par value of $.01 per share (the
"Common Stock") and 5,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock with a par value of $.01
per share (the "Preferred Stock").
 
     A description of the respective classes of stock and a statement of the
designations, powers, preferences and rights, and the qualifications,
limitations and restrictions of the Preferred Stock and Common Stock are as
follows:
 
     A.   COMMON STOCK
          ------------
 
     1.   GENERAL.  All shares of Common Stock will be identical and will
          -------                                                        
entitle the holders thereof to the same rights, powers and privileges.  The
rights, powers and privileges of 
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 2 -
 
the holders of the Common Stock are subject to and qualified by the rights of
holders of the Preferred Stock.
 
     2.   DIVIDENDS.  Dividends may be declared and paid on the Common Stock
          ---------                                                         
from funds lawfully available therefor as and when determined by the Board of
Directors and subject to any preferential dividend rights of any then
outstanding Preferred Stock.
 
     3.   DISSOLUTION, LIQUIDATION OR WINDING UP.  In the event of any
          --------------------------------------                      
dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation,
whether voluntary or involuntary, each issued and outstanding share of Common
Stock shall entitle the holder thereof to receive an equal portion of the net
assets of the Corporation available for distribution to the holders of Common
Stock, subject to any preferential rights of any then outstanding Preferred
Stock.
 
     4.   VOTING RIGHTS.  Except as otherwise required by law or this Amended
          -------------                                                      
and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, each holder of Common Stock shall
have one vote in respect of each share of stock held of record by such holder on
the books of the Corporation for the election of directors and on all matters
submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Corporation.  Except as otherwise
required by law or provided herein, holders of Common Stock shall vote together
with holders of the Preferred Stock as a single class, subject to any special or
preferential voting rights of any then outstanding Preferred Stock.  There shall
be no cumulative voting.
 
     B.   PREFERRED STOCK
          ---------------
 
     The Preferred Stock may be issued in one or more series at such time or
times and for such consideration or considerations as the Board of Directors of
the Corporation may determine.  Each series shall be so designated as to
distinguish the shares thereof from the shares of all other series and classes.
Except as otherwise provided in this Amended and Restated Certificate of
Incorporation, different series of Preferred Stock shall not be construed to
constitute different classes of shares for the purpose of voting by classes.
 
     The Board of Directors is expressly authorized to provide for the issuance
of all or any shares of the undesignated Preferred Stock in one or more series,
each with such designations, preferences, voting powers (or special,
preferential or no voting powers), relative, participating, optional or other
special rights and privileges and such qualifications, limitations or
restrictions thereof as shall be stated in the resolution or resolutions adopted
by the Board of Directors to create such series, and a certificate of said
resolution or resolutions (a "Certificate of Designation") shall be filed in
accordance with the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.  The
authority of the Board of Directors with respect to each such series shall
include, without limitation of the foregoing, the right to provide that the
shares of each such series may be:  (i) subject to redemption at such time or
times and at such price or prices; (ii) entitled to receive dividends (which may
be cumulative or non-cumulative) at such rates, on such conditions, and at such
times, and payable in preference to, or in such relation to, the dividends
payable on any other class or classes or any other series; (iii) entitled to
such rights upon the dissolution of, or upon any distribution of the assets of,
the Corporation; (iv) convertible into, or 
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 3 -
 
exchangeable for, shares of any other class or classes of stock, or of any other
series of the same or any other class or classes of stock of the Corporation at
such price or prices or at such rates of exchange and with such adjustments, if
any; (v) entitled to the benefit of such limitations, if any, on the issuance of
additional shares of such series or shares of any other series of Preferred
Stock; or (vi) entitled to such other preferences, powers, qualifications,
rights and privileges, all as the Board of Directors may deem advisable and as
are not inconsistent with law and the provisions of this Amended and Restated
Certificate of Incorporation.
 
     FIFTH.  The Corporation is to have perpetual existence.
 
     SIXTH.  The following provisions are included for the management of the
business and the conduct of the affairs of the Corporation, and for further
definition, limitation and regulation of the powers of the Corporation and of
its Board of Directors and stockholders:
 
          1.   The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by
or under the direction of the Board of Directors of the Corporation.
 
          2.   The Board of Directors of the Corporation is expressly authorized
to adopt, amend or repeal the By-laws of the Corporation, subject to any
limitation thereof contained in the By-laws.  The stockholders shall also have
the power to adopt, amend or repeal the By-laws of the Corporation; provided,
                                                                    -------- 
however, that, in addition to any vote of the holders of any class or series of
- -------                                                                        
stock of the Corporation required by law or by this Amended and Restated
Certificate of Incorporation, the affirmative vote of the holders of at least
seventy-five percent     (75 %) of the voting power of all of the then
outstanding shares of the capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote
generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class, shall
be required to adopt, amend or repeal any provision of the By-laws of the
Corporation.
 
          3.   Stockholders of the Corporation may not take any action by
written consent in lieu of a meeting.
 
          4.   Special meetings of stockholders may be called at any time only
by the President, the Chairman of the Board of Directors (if any) or a majority
of the Board of Directors.  Business transacted at any special meeting of
stockholders shall be limited to matters relating to the purpose or purposes
stated in the notice of meeting.
 
          5.   The books of the Corporation may be kept at such place within or
without the State of Delaware as the By-laws of the Corporation may provide or
as may be designated from time to time by the Board of Directors of the
Corporation.
 
     SEVENTH.  No director (including any advisory director) of the Corporation
shall be personally liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary
damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director notwithstanding any provision
of law imposing such liability; provided, however, that, to the extent provided
by applicable law, this provision shall not eliminate the liability of a
director (i) for any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the 
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 4 -
 
Corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or
which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under
Section 174 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, or (iv) for
any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. No
amendment to or repeal of this provision shall apply to or have any effect on
the liability or alleged liability of any director for or with respect to any
acts or omissions of such director occurring prior to such amendment or repeal.
 
     EIGHTH.  The Board of Directors of the Corporation, when evaluating any
offer of another party (a) to make a tender or exchange offer for any equity
security of the Corporation or (b) to effect a business combination, shall, in
connection with the exercise of its judgment in determining what is in the best
interests of the Corporation as whole, be authorized to give due consideration
to any such factors as the Board of Directors determines to be relevant,
including, without limitation:
 
     (i) the interests of the Corporation's stockholders, including the
   possibility that these interests might be best served by the continued
   independence of the Corporation;
 
     (ii) whether the proposed transaction might violate federal or state laws;
 
     (iii) not only the consideration being offered in the proposed transaction,
   in relation to the then current market price for the outstanding capital
   stock of the Corporation, but also to the market price for the capital stock
   of the Corporation over a period of years, the estimated price that might be
   achieved in a negotiated sale of the Corporation as a whole or in part or
   through orderly liquidation, the premiums over market price for the
   securities of other corporations in similar transactions, current political,
   economic and other factors bearing on securities prices and the Corporation's
   financial condition and future prospects; and
 
     (iv) the social, legal and economic effects upon employees, suppliers,
   customers, creditors and others having similar relationships with the
   Corporation, upon the communities in which the Corporation conducts its
   business and upon the economy of the state, region and nation.
 
In connection with any such evaluation, the Board of Directors is authorized to
conduct such investigations and engage in such legal proceedings as the Board of
Directors may determine.
 
     NINTH.
 
     1.   ACTIONS, SUITS AND PROCEEDINGS OTHER THAN BY OR IN THE RIGHT OF THE
          -------------------------------------------------------------------
CORPORATION.  The Corporation shall indemnify each person who was or is a party
- -----------                                                                    
or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed
action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or
investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the Corporation), by
reason of the fact that he is or was, or has agreed to become, a director or
officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving, or has agreed to serve, at the
request of the Corporation, as a director, officer or trustee of, or in a
similar capacity with, another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or
other enterprise (including any employee benefit plan) (all 
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 5 -
 
such persons being referred to hereafter as an "Indemnitee"), or by reason of
any action alleged to have been taken or omitted in such capacity, against all
expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in
settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in
connection with such action, suit or proceeding and any appeal therefrom, if he
acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in, or not
opposed to, the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any
criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct
was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment,
order, settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its
                                                ---- ----------  
equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not
act in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in, or not
opposed to, the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any
criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his conduct
was unlawful. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article, except
as set forth in Section 6 below, the Corporation shall not indemnify an
Indemnitee seeking indemnification in connection with a proceeding (or part
thereof) initiated by the Indemnitee unless the initiation thereof was approved
by the Board of Directors of the Corporation.
 
     2.   ACTIONS OR SUITS BY OR IN THE RIGHT OF THE CORPORATION.  The
          ------------------------------------------------------   
Corporation shall indemnify any Indemnitee who was or is a party or is
threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or
suit by or in the right of the Corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by
reason of the fact that he is or was, or has agreed to become, a director or
officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving, or has agreed to serve, at the
request of the Corporation, as a director, officer or trustee of, or in a
similar capacity with, another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or
other enterprise (including any employee benefit plan), or by reason of any
action alleged to have been taken or omitted in such capacity, against all
expenses (including attorneys' fees) and amounts paid in settlement actually and
reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in connection with such action, suit
or proceeding and any appeal therefrom, if he acted in good faith and in a
manner he reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of
the Corporation, except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any
claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be
liable to the Corporation unless and only to the extent that the Court of
Chancery of Delaware or the court in which such action or suit was brought shall
determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of such liability but
in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and
reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses (including attorneys' fees)
which the Court of Chancery of Delaware or such other court shall deem proper.
 
     3.   INDEMNIFICATION FOR EXPENSES OF SUCCESSFUL PARTY.  Notwithstanding the
          ------------------------------------------------
other provisions of this Article, to the extent that an Indemnitee has been
successful, on the merits or otherwise, in defense of any action, suit or
proceeding referred to in Sections 1 and 2 of this Article, or in defense of any
claim, issue or matter therein, or on appeal from any such action, suit or
proceeding, he shall be indemnified against all expenses (including attorneys'
fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in connection
therewith.  Without limiting the foregoing, if any action, suit or proceeding is
disposed of, on the merits or otherwise (including a disposition without
prejudice), without (i) the disposition being adverse to the Indemnitee, (ii) an
adjudication that the Indemnitee was liable to the Corporation, (iii) a plea of
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 6 -
 
guilty or nolo contendere by the Indemnitee, (iv) an adjudication that the
          ---- ----------       
Indemnitee did not act in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to
be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and (v) with
respect to any criminal proceeding, an adjudication that the Indemnitee had
reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful, the Indemnitee shall be
considered for the purpose hereof to have been wholly successful with respect
thereto.
 
     4.   NOTIFICATION AND DEFENSE OF CLAIM.  As a condition precedent to his
          --------------------------------- 
right to be indemnified, the Indemnitee must notify the Corporation in writing
as soon as practicable of any action, suit, proceeding or investigation
involving him for which indemnity will or could be sought.  With respect to any
action, suit, proceeding or investigation of which the Corporation is so
notified, the Corporation will be entitled to participate therein at its own
expense and/or to assume the defense thereof at its own expense, with legal
counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitee.  After notice from the
Corporation to the Indemnitee of its election so to assume such defense, the
Corporation shall not be liable to the Indemnitee for any legal or other
expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with such claim,
other than as provided below in this Section 4.  The Indemnitee shall have the
right to employ his own counsel in connection with such claim, but the fees and
expenses of such counsel incurred after notice from the Corporation of its
assumption of the defense thereof shall be at the expense of the Indemnitee
unless (i) the employment of counsel by the Indemnitee has been authorized by
the Corporation, (ii) counsel to the Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded
that there may be a conflict of interest or position on any significant issue
between the Corporation and the Indemnitee in the conduct of the defense of such
action or (iii) the Corporation shall not in fact have employed counsel to
assume the defense of such action, in each of which cases the fees and expenses
of counsel for the Indemnitee shall be at the expense of the Corporation, except
as otherwise expressly provided by this Article.  The Corporation shall not be
entitled, without the consent of the Indemnitee, to assume the defense of any
claim brought by or in the right of the Corporation or as to which counsel for
the Indemnitee shall have reasonably made the conclusion provided for in clause
(ii) above.
 
     5.   ADVANCE OF EXPENSES.  Subject to the provisions of Section 6 below, in
          ------------------- 
the event that the Corporation does not assume the defense pursuant to Section 4
of this Article of any action, suit, proceeding or investigation of which the
Corporation receives notice under this Article, any expenses (including
attorneys' fees) incurred by an Indemnitee in defending a civil or criminal
action, suit, proceeding or investigation or any appeal therefrom shall be paid
by the Corporation in advance of the final disposition of such matter, provided,
however, that the payment of such expenses incurred by an Indemnitee in advance
of the final disposition of such matter shall be made only upon receipt of an
undertaking by or on behalf of the Indemnitee to repay all amounts so advanced
in the event that it shall ultimately be determined that the indemnitee is not
entitled to be indemnified by the Corporation as authorized in this Article.
Such undertaking may be accepted without reference to the financial ability of
such person to make such repayment.
 
     6.   PROCEDURE FOR INDEMNIFICATION.  In order to obtain indemnification or
          -----------------------------
advancement of expenses pursuant to Section 1, 2, 3 or 5 of this Article, the
Indemnitee shall submit to the Corporation a written request, including in such
request such documentation and 
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 7 -
 
information as is reasonably available to the Indemnitee and is reasonably
necessary to determine whether and to what extent the Indemnitee is entitled to
indemnification or advancement of expenses. Any such indemnification or
advancement of expenses shall be made promptly, and in any event within 60 days
after receipt by the Corporation of the written request of the Indemnitee,
unless with respect to requests under Section 1, 2 or 5 the Corporation
determines, by clear and convincing evidence, within such 60-day period that the
Indemnitee did not meet the applicable standard of conduct set forth in Section
1 or 2, as the case may be. Such determination shall be made in each instance by
(a) a majority vote of the directors of the Corporation who are not at that time
parties to the action, suit or proceeding in question ("disinterested
directors"), even though less than a quorum, (b) if there are no such
disinterested directors, or if such disinterested directors so direct, by
independent legal counsel (who may be regular legal counsel to the corporation)
in a written opinion, (c) a majority vote of a quorum of the outstanding shares
of stock of all classes entitled to vote for directors, voting as a single
class, which quorum shall consist of stockholders who are not at that time
parties to the action, suit or proceeding in question, or (d) a court of
competent jurisdiction.
 
     7.   REMEDIES.  The right to indemnification or advances as granted by this
          --------    
Article shall be enforceable by the Indemnitee in any court of competent
jurisdiction if the Corporation denies such request, in whole or in part, or if
no disposition thereof is made within the 60-day period referred to above in
Section 6.  Unless otherwise provided by law, the burden of proving that the
Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification or advancement of expenses under
this Article shall be on the Corporation.  Neither the failure of the
Corporation to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such
action that indemnification is proper in the circumstances because the
Indemnitee has met the applicable standard of conduct, nor an actual
determination by the Corporation pursuant to Section 6 that the Indemnitee has
not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall be a defense to the action or
create a presumption that the Indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of
conduct.  The Indemnitee's expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in
connection with successfully establishing his right to indemnification, in whole
or in part, in any such proceeding shall also be indemnified by the Corporation.
 
     8.   SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENT.  No amendment, termination or repeal of this
          --------------------
Article or of the relevant provisions of the General Corporation Law of the
State of Delaware or any other applicable laws shall affect or diminish in any
way the rights of any Indemnitee to indemnification under the provisions hereof
with respect to any action, suit, proceeding or investigation arising out of or
relating to any actions, transactions or facts occurring prior to the final
adoption of such amendment, termination or repeal.
 
     9.   OTHER RIGHTS.  The indemnification and advancement of expenses
          ------------
provided by this Article shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to
which an Indemnitee seeking indemnification or advancement of expenses may be
entitled under any law (common or statutory), agreement or vote of stockholders
or disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his official
capacity and as to action in any other capacity while holding office for the
Corporation, and shall continue as to an Indemnitee who has ceased to be a
director or officer, and shall inure to the benefit of the estate, heirs,
executors and administrators of the Indemnitee.
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 8 -
 
Nothing contained in this Article shall be deemed to prohibit, and the
Corporation is specifically authorized to enter into, agreements with officers
and directors providing indemnification rights and procedures different from
those set forth in this Article. In addition, the Corporation may, to the extent
authorized from time to time by its Board of Directors, grant indemnification
rights to other employees or agents of the Corporation or other persons serving
the Corporation and such rights may be equivalent to, or greater or less than,
those set forth in this Article.
 
     10.  PARTIAL INDEMNIFICATION. If an Indemnitee is entitled under any
          -----------------------
provision of this Article to indemnification by the Corporation for some or a
portion of the expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines or amounts
paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in
connection with any action, suit, proceeding or investigation and any appeal
therefrom but not, however, for the total amount thereof, the Corporation shall
nevertheless indemnify the Indemnitee for the portion of such expenses
(including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines or amounts paid in settlement to
which the Indemnitee is entitled.
 
     11.  INSURANCE. The Corporation may purchase and maintain insurance, at its
          ---------
expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the
Corporation or another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other
enterprise (including any employee benefit plan) against any expense, liability
or loss incurred by him in any such capacity, or arising out of his status as
such, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such
person against such expense, liability or loss under the General Corporation Law
of the State of Delaware.
 
     12.  MERGER OR CONSOLIDATION. If the Corporation is merged into or
          -----------------------
consolidated with another corporation and the Corporation is not the surviving
corporation, the surviving corporation shall assume the obligations of the
Corporation under this Article with respect to any action, suit, proceeding or
investigation arising out of or relating to any actions, transactions or facts
occurring prior to the date of such merger or consolidation.
 
     13.  SAVINGS CLAUSE.  If this Article or any portion hereof shall be
          --------------
invalidated on any ground by any court of competent jurisdiction, then the
Corporation shall nevertheless indemnify each Indemnitee as to any expenses
(including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in
connection with any action, suit, proceeding or investigation, whether civil,
criminal or administrative, including an action by or in the right of the
Corporation, to the fullest extent permitted by an applicable portion of this
Article that shall not have been invalidated and to the fullest extent permitted
by applicable law.
 
     14.  DEFINITIONS.  Terms used herein and defined in Section 145(h) and
          -----------
Section 145(i) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware shall
have the respective meanings assigned to such terms in such Section 145(h) and
Section 145(i).
 
     15.  SUBSEQUENT LEGISLATION.  If the General Corporation Law of the State
          ----------------------
of Delaware is amended after adoption of this Article to expand further the
indemnification permitted to Indemnitees, then the Corporation shall indemnify
such persons to the fullest extent permitted by the General Corporation Law of
the State of Delaware, as so amended.
<PAGE>
 
                                     - 9 -
 
     TENTH.  The Corporation reserves the right to amend or repeal any provision
contained in this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation in the
manner prescribed by the laws of the State of Delaware and all rights conferred
upon stockholders are granted subject to this reservation, provided, however,
                                                           --------  -------
that in addition to any vote of the holders of any class or series of stock of
the Corporation required by law, this Amended and Restated Certificate of
Incorporation or a Certificate of Designation with respect to a series of
Preferred Stock, the affirmative vote of the holders of shares of voting stock
of the Corporation representing at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the
voting power of all of the then outstanding shares of the capital stock of the
Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting
together as a single class, shall be required to (i) reduce or eliminate the
number of authorized shares of Common Stock or the number of authorized shares
of Preferred Stock set forth in Article FOURTH or (ii) amend or repeal, or adopt
any provision inconsistent with, Parts A and B of Article FOURTH and Articles
FIFTH, SIXTH, SEVENTH, EIGHTH, NINTH and this Article TENTH of this Amended and
