Video on Demand (VoD) is a media distribution system that allows users to access videos at any time, independent of a fixed broadcast schedule. It is a kind of over-the-top service. Video on Demand has faster, more robust internet infrastructure, over-the-top technologies, and more powerful mobile devices that have increased the popularity of on-demand content, replacing older methods of media distribution. The three ways you can deploy are subscription VoD, transactional VoD, and advertising VoD. The kind or kinds of distribution your company chooses depends on your company’s goals.
The popularity of Video-on-Demand has spiked in recent years as people have wanted more and more control over what they watch and how they watch it. The industry is only continuing to surge, with no signs of slowing down. But it also gives your company more control too, how you monetize your content. Whether it is films or TV shows, music, courses, product demos, podcasts, or something else entirely, there is some kind of content your company can produce and space in the market to do so. And since it is all pre-recorded content, you have basically unlimited scalability with little-to-no effort. There is really no reason not to add Video-on-Demand to your company’s repertoire.
