- Wmode expands focus to include quad/triple play and broadband service
providers for its ClearMode services -
CTIA, ORLANDO, March 26 /CNW/ - Wmode, the leading provider of digital
media distribution services under the ClearMode brand, announced today that
they will increase their focus on providing solutions to broadband and
multi-network service providers. Wmode, already a provider of managed services
to quadruple play operators such as Vidéotron, will more aggressively pursue
multi-network service providers with its ClearMode offering. The ability for
quadruple and triple play operators to manage, promote, bundle and retail
digital media and content services across all networks to all subscribers is
an unparalleled benefit that Wmode offers.
In a converged world, with the advent of IMS, mobile broadband networks,
VoIP, IPTV, and massively increased Internet bandwidth, consumers decide which
device and network they would like to use to access specific content. Watching
TV on a laptop or a mobile phone is commonplace today. Wmode's strategy now
places the company at the center of this convergence, leveraging its
experience in managing and distributing a full range of digital media and
content for service providers around the world.
"Wmode's view of the digital media market is that of convergence.
Consumers have come to expect the same services regardless of device or
network. The capabilities of today's mobile devices take advantage of all the
features and functionality that exists in the broadband world and the delivery
network is irrelevant from the consumer's point of view." stated Emanuel
Bertolin, CEO for Wmode. "The solutions in our industry currently address
individual networks, broadband or mobile. This won't continue to work for much
longer. We see many of our existing partners needing a service offering that
can facilitate the merchandizing, advertising, distribution and payment of
digital media across all their networks."
As part of the new focus, Wmode continues to supplement its consolidated
content catalog with rich digital media. Partnerships with industry leading
content providers for full length music and video are a key objective for the
company. Wmode currently has an industry leading partnership program for
content. The move to rich digital media and services will enable Wmode to
offer a turn-key solution to multi-network service providers.
Wmode operates ClearMode(R), a digital media distribution service that
provides for the recruitment, management, discovery, delivery and payment of
digital content. Wmode offers a complete suite of technologies and services as
a managed service to enable triple and quad play service providers, broadband
operators, mobile carriers, MVNOs, content providers and media companies to
deliver a broad range of digital media and services to their consumers.
ClearMode, the first complete digital media distribution solution, has been
operated as a managed service since 2002. Wmode, founded in September 2000, is
a privately held company with offices in Calgary and Toronto, Canada and Bern,
Switzerland. Further information about Wmode can be found at www.wmode.com.
