MediaGeniX, has released a VOD module as part of their WHATSâ€™On channel management and scheduling software. This allows a service operator to efficiently manage the workflow of on-demand content, and to accurately manage the rights, material and scheduling. The combination of the VOD workflow with the linear workflow - in a single system - will bring the long awaited business gains to stations that provide multi-media and multi-platform services.
When combining linear and VOD platforms, it is possible to offer services such as catch-up TV, rewind functionality and even previews of popular series, as well as a catalog of content on a pay-per-view or subscription basis. WHATSâ€™On Generation 3 version 21 will be released at IBC 2008.
