TVN to Assist ESPN with VOD


TVN Entertainment Corp. said Wednesday that it will provide ESPN with a range of video-on-demand services as part of a deal between the two companies.

TVN will provide ESPN with encoding, asset management, site-specific metadata and multicast transport to VOD systems throughout North America via its "ADONISS" platform.

The two companies will also explore other VOD opportunities -- including rapid delivery and real time encoding of time-sensitive content -- as part of TVN’s "TVNow" rapid-VOD-transport service.
