MusicGiants Adds VideoGiants Service
True to the promise made at the Fall 2007 CEDIA Expo, high-definition direct-to-home audio content provider MusicGiants has kicked off its video content delivery platform, VideoGiants.
The company announced at the 2008 CES that it would partner with Paramount Pictures Digital Entertainment so that could make hundreds of titles in the Paramount library available through its service – the first time Paramount has made its movies available through such a method.
Scott Bahneman, MusicGiants CEO, said that initially, releases would be of DVD-quality. He added that video content could be delivered either on a hard drive (in the case of large collections) – through a newly forged partnership with hard-drive maker Seagate -- or directly to a media server that has the MusicGiants Download Media “store” built in. MusicGiants’ media server hardware partners to date include Crestron, Imerge, Niveus, Russound, ReQuest, Xperinet, Cutting Edge and Inteset.
