Deluxe Launches Multiscreen On Demand Video Catalog Service for Cable


Service-based solution provides immediate access to the industry’s largest video catalog with the highest quality encoding to any device


BURBANK, Calif., October 17, 2012  -  Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., the leading provider of a broad range of services and technologies to the worldwide entertainment industry,  today announced the launch of Deluxe On Demand, the industry’s largest video catalog service which contains the encodes to enable viewing on any device.  Deluxe on Demand overcomes the critical challenges service providers face in meeting consumer demand for access to video content that is competitive to the quality provided by over-the-top (OTT) providers. The service-based approach delivers cost efficiencies and time-to-market advantages as compared to other solutions that are on the market today.  This service is available now from the Deluxe Digital Distribution business group and will be demonstrated at the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando, Florida. 


Deluxe on Demand gives service providers the choice to access and immediately deliver an extensive and ever expanding video catalog to subscribers, without the significant upfront investment in time and resources to build their own network infrastructure and to create and manage new content processing workflows.  The service-based solution improves operations while providing access to the largest video catalog that can be delivered to the service provider’s network or directly to the customer for multiscreen viewing.


Deluxe on Demand delivers:


-       Most extensive catalog of video titles:  Over 40,000 titles today and thousands added each month.  The titles span a full range of programming, including Feature Film, Premium Subscription, and Television.

-       Formatted for viewing on any device:  Video titles are immediately available encoded in over 50 formats for viewing on the set-top box (MPEG2 and MPEG4), gaming consoles, Smart TVs, and Consumer Electronic (CE) devices such as the PC/Mac, iPad, and Android.  Deluxe invests in creating file formats for all devices so that titles are ready when service providers want them.  

-       Highest quality:  Video with the highest quality output can only be created from high quality masters and experience in creating, processing, and storing these source files.  Deluxe is the leader in this area and maintains the largest aggregated supply.  The company has leveraged its technical innovation and century of experience in working with the original masters to create Deluxe On Demand.

-       Integration with leading DRMs:  Video titles are available pre-encrypted and pre-packaged with the most popular Digital Rights Management (DRM) providers for easy integration with service provider’s TV Everywhere device applications.


“Deluxe on Demand brings true innovation to the market to address the fundamental challenges service providers face to meet subscriber demand for more video to more connected devices, quickly and cost effectively,”  said Kevin Corbett,  President of Deluxe Digital Distribution.  “Our service-based approach ensures that our customers with content rights have immediate access to the largest library of high quality pre-encoded and pre-packaged video assets with the flexibility to choose which titles they want to deliver to which devices.”

Think NFV is just about virtualization? Think again!

Network architects are learning that there's a lot more to the technology than first thought – more complexity, that is; but also, more potential benefits.

On May 29th 1 PM ET, Steve Saunders, founder and CEO of Light Reading, will be drilling into the "pains and gains" of NFV with Saar Gillai, SVP & GM, HP Communications Solutions Business at Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE: HPQ) (HP). He has defined a four-step NFV model describing a sequence of technology innovation. It's a must-read doc for any network architect looking to get to grips with their NFV migration strategy. Join us for the interview, and the chance to ask Saar your NFV questions directly!
