VTR GlobalCom revealed its on-demand service, launched in December, uses long-time technology partner SeaChange International’s on-demand software, video servers, middleware and network QAMs. VTR, a Liberty Global subsidiary, claims its “VTR On Demand” is the first VOD service available in Chile.
VTR offers not only movies on-demand, but also news, sports, events and other local broadcast and network programming, using SeaChange’s Axiom product, which automatically captures scheduled shows for immediate on-demand access.
VTR is deploying VODlink DVD-on-Demand as well, an application that streams complete DVDs with all the associated control and extras. Meanwhile, the patented VODlink Channel Overlay technology will empower VTR to tap into content genre or brand preferences by presenting viewers with direct links to on-demand titles and channels that are relevant to the live broadcast they are watching.
