This morning at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, the Comcast Media Center announced it was delivering WealthTV's on-demand 3-D programming via its VOD content distribution service.

In addition to 3-D, the Comcast Media Center (CMC) is also handling WealthTV's SD and HD on-demand programming through its content distribution service.

"CMC's video-on-demand platform is ideal for providing our abundant library of engaging 3-D programming to our affiliates across North America," said Robert Herring Jr., vice president of WealthTV. "In addition to its leadership in managing and delivering 3-D content, CMC maintains a commitment to quality that reflects our high standards for excellence."

The CMC said its VOD distribution encompassed cable systems across multiple MSOs serving more than 56 million VOD-enabled households in the U.S. and Canada.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to add WealthTV's unique content to the more than 10,000 hours of on-demand programming we deliver to the industry each month," said Richard Buchanan, vice president and general manager of content services for the Comcast Media Center. "We look forward to meeting Wealth TV's content distribution objectives through our broad scope of VOD services, expansive reach and extent of our commitment to video quality."

The CMC's VOD platform is a one-stop shop from a central location that also includes content acquisition, transcoding, editing, distribution and quality control. The platform operates under automated workflows and remote management capabilities to accelerate the delivery of VOD content.

In addition to its role in uploading and managing television programming and related metadata, the CMC's Web-based portal lets clients track each VOD asset from CMC receipt to distribution across the VOD platform's footprint.
