iN DEMAND’s VOD content soon will be available via the HITS On Demand Content Distribution Network. ?

HITS On Demand Content Distribution Network, a new cloud-based solution from HITS, offers third-party operators additional on-demand library content with no need for additional local storage. The new network uses centralized content hosting, edge caches and VOD servers to maximize local storage, and it supports MPEG-2 set-top boxes. ?

“Working with iN DEMAND allows HITS to offer thousands of additional on demand titles to our cable affiliates,” says Leslie Russell, vice president/GM at HITS. “Making this type of long-tail entertainment available through a cloud-based environment allows operators to fulfill the demand for deeper library content without buying or maintaining more storage locally.  It is a natural fit for HITS, which continuously develops solutions designed to reduce up-front investment and maximize operator return.”?

iN DEMAND’s movies come from major studios and independent filmmakers.  iN DEMAND’s owners include Comcast iN DEMAND Holdings Inc., Cox Communications Holdings Inc., and Time Warner Entertainment – Advance/Newhouse Partnership.?
