Transforming the global reach of Digital Video.
Transactional VOD: TVod is a growing market.
Revenue in the "TVoD" segment amounted to US$2,078 million in 2016.
Imagine if content was broken down into “vDna” fragments and those fragments were being stored on everyone’s devices where storage space is available and allowed.
Imagine if individuals that allowed a certain portion of their device to be used got a rebate from their carrier, much like a solar project where putting energy back into the grid gave a user revenue. If this were the case, content could be assembled from devices on a carrier or localised network several feet away.
Because each fragment of a piece of content is a vDna segment, and much like a peer-to-peer network, each chunk is location registered and delivered to be assembled at request.
Unlike a peer-to-peer network, the content is secured, as the fragments cannot be assembled without the containing key or vStub. Using Linius, this is the receptacle that assembles the vDna back into a playable piece of media.
Whilst this type of technology does not yet exist, the peer-to-peer systems do and carriers have the ability to turn their network into a grid that provides even more value to every segment of the content delivery ecosystem.
