A&E Uses N2's ‘Xport’ for VOD Production


N2 Broadband Inc. said A&E Television Networks is using its “Xport” producer to support in-house production of video-on-demand content.

"N2 Broadband's Xport enables us to more easily prepare our content for on-demand use," A&E Networks senior vice president of affiliate sales and marketing David Zagin said in a prepared statement.

The software allows programs to perform one-click encoding, to create Cable Television Laboratories Inc.-compliant metadata and to edit and prepare content for VOD servers.

N2 said Xport is deployed by programmers in more than 30 locations.
