Some terms that help how you sell your films in the digital age. These definitions are fluid as is the nature of technology. VOD: Video on demand (display) (VOD) are systems which allow users to select and watch/listen to video or audio content such as movies and TV shows when they choose to, rather than having to watch at a specific broadcast time, which was the prevalent approach with over-the-air broadcasting during much of the 20th century. IPTV technology is often used to bring video on demand to televisions and personal computers. More here. SVOD: Subscription VOD (SVOD) services use a subscription business model, where subscribers are charged a monthly fee to access unlimited programs. These services include Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Video, Videoland, HBO Go and CuriosityStream. AVOD: Advertising video on demand is a VOD model which uses an advertising-based revenue model. This allows companies that advertise on broadcast and cable channels to reach people who watch shows using VOD. As well, this model allows people to watch programs without paying subscription fees. Hulu has been one of the major AVOD companies, though the company ended free service in August 2016. Ads still run on the subscription service. Yahoo View continues to offer a free AVOD model. Advertisers may find that people watching on VOD services do not want the same ads to appear multiple times. Crackle has introduced the concept of a series of ads for the same company that tie in to what is being watched. NVOD : Near video on demand (NVOD) is a pay-per-view consumer video technique used by multi-channel broadcasters using high-bandwidth distribution mechanisms such as satellite and cable television. Multiple copies of a program are broadcast at short time intervals (typically 10–20 minutes) providing convenience for viewers, who can watch the program without needing to tune in at only scheduled point in time. A viewer may only have to wait a few minutes before the next time a movie will be programmed. This form is very bandwidth-intensive and is generally provided only by large operators with a great deal of redundant capacity and has been reduced in popularity as video on demand is implemented. TVOD: Transactional VOD Transactional (or Transaction) VOD is the counterpart of the "all you can eat"-buffet concept of SVOD. TVOD will normally not charge you anything to sign up for the service/create a user profile. Instead, you will pay an amount based on the content you watch. Most often this relates to movies, but is also used for series and in particular for sports and events. Think Apple iTunes as an example (although strictly speaking not a pureplay OTT service). Details here. FVOD: Free Video On Demand : VOD programming offered by a network operator free of charge. FVOD programming includes on-demand advertising and on-demand programming offered as part of a basic VOD package. More here.
What is VOD-Video on Demand The concept isn't new to the media world but with the increase in bandwidth and so many providers, videos are flooding the market , the awareness is surely on the high. VoD can work well over a wide geographic region or on a satellite-based network as long as the demand for programming is modest. However, when large number of consumers demand multiple programs on a continuous basis, the total amount of data involved (in terms of megabytes) can overwhelm network resources.One way to sort this problem is to store programs on geographically distributed servers and provide programs to local users on request, a technology called store and forward. This approach increases the availability of the programming and the overall reliability of the system compared with the use of a single gigantic storehouse. Store and forward also allows local providers to maintain their systems and set up billing structures independently. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching technology lends itself especially well to this application.
