MOD Systems Expands Kiosk Reach10 Jan, 2011 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Digital movie and music kiosk operator MOD Systems Jan. 10 said it is increasing the scope of its “Download2Go” platform through a distribution deal with kiosk operator Meridian Zero Degrees.
Consumers can purchase or rent new release movies from Meridian kiosks and transfer to Secure Digital (SD) memory cards, USB sticks, MP3 players and Android and Blackberry mobile phones.
“Consumers need easier and more relevant ways to access entertainment, and purchasing digital titles fits extremely well with their lifestyles,” said Anthony Bay, CEO of MOD Systems. "Innovation is the cornerstone of both MOD and Meridian’s product development strategies and our relationship demonstrates this shared approach."
The two companies made the announcement at the National Retail Federation confab running through Jan. 12 in New York.
Last month MOD cut its staff by 15 employees, or 35%, bringing its personnel count to about 30 people.
