MOD Systems’ partnership with Toshiba and NCR Corp. to deliver content via downloads to SD cards now has major studio backing: Warner Bros. and Paramount Digital Entertainment.
“MOD Systems offers a new avenue for consumers looking to access Paramount Pictures movies on-the-go, with a solution that is quick, convenient and compatible across a wide range of devices,” said Alex Carloss, EVP of digital distribution for Paramount Digital Entertainment.
Anchor Bay, First Look and Image had already signed on with MOD, which is aiming to install retail kiosks where consumers can get movies and music downloaded to SD cards. MOD puts its available title count at 4,000 so far.
“We’re excited to work with Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures to provide retailers with a digital video solution,” said Mark E. Phillips, CEO of MOD Systems. “These agreements validate our commitment to be at the forefront of developing solutions that offer rights management, interoperability and content protection.
“Digital downloads to SD cards via interactive kiosks from our partner NCR give retailers a new way to increase content and device sales and ultimately better compete.”
