Open Standards Everywhere

Politicians may not be in a bipartisan mood these days, but VOD vendors are going to great pains to play nice with everyone. SeaChange, which I referenced a few days ago, is now offering its Axiom Suite VOD software as an open platform. Motorola will be demonstrating the integration of its own open-standards B-1 Video Server with Axiom 4.0 at The Cable Show next week. If SeaChange customers want a DRAM server solution, they can replace existing servers with the Motorola hardware, or just add on new B-1 units.

Okay, so this probably isn’t that interesting to people outside the immediate cable sphere, but it should be interesting that Motorola will be demonstrating the integration by streaming HD VOD. High-definition VOD offerings are going to grow significantly in the next 12 to 24 months. That plus the availability of movies on-demand at the same time they’re released on DVD is going to add to cable’s competitive advantage against emerging retail movie-in-a-box players.
