N2 Broadband, Gotuit Team Up


Gotuit Media Corp. and N2 Broadband Inc. are teaming up to make finding video-on-demand content easier.

Gotuit’s "Gotuit TV" indexing technology for VOD content will integrate N2 Broadband’s "OpenStream" VOD platform under terms of a partnership announced at the Western Show Wednesday.

The combination is currently being tested by a major MSO, and it will be commercially available in the first quarter of 2004.

"Enhanced metadata will drive new methods for navigating on-demand content, creating new ways for consumers to find what they want in the on-demand programming era," Gotuit president Mark Pascarella said in a release.

"Our partnership with N2 Broadband allows us to streamline the integration process and immediately deploy into a huge embedded market," he added.
