Vubiquity manages more than 28,000 hours of content each month, working with more than 340 content providers and over 270 service providers. The company provides managed services that help both content and service providers to monetize their video through advertising, subscription or transaction, including:

  • Video On Demand services including encoding, metadata creation and management, file management and delivery, and marketing
  • Multiplatform services that support TV Everywhere and SVOD offerings for connected devices, including authentication to federated sites, ABR encoding, and profile management

  • Data Analytics that provide content and service providers with insight into viewing behaviors and preferences, and bring a new level of business intelligence to the management of VOD and multiplatform services

Product and Services Roadmap
Over the past two years, Vubiquity has made significant investments in its platform and technology, and content rights to help its customers meet and monetize the growing appetite for multiscreen viewing. Among these milestones are: the launch of the industry's first satellite-fiber hybrid distribution platform; the launch of the ViewNow SVOD service and a nearly ten-fold increase in Avail-TVN's storage capabilities to support ViewNow's deep on-demand content libraries; and the industry's first advanced advertising insertion and marking service for streamlined DAI.  In 2012, the company significantly expanded its global reach through the acquisition of On Demand Group, based in London. 

Over the coming year, the company plans to introduce services for mobile platforms and cloud-based content storage, and will continue to expand its services into new territories.
