anyVID-VM - VOD Preparation and Staging Controller

The anyVID-VM is a key piece of a complete anyVID Solution and also works well in a standalone VOD system.  The anyVID-VM manages VOD XML metadata, VOD trailers, and full-length VOD assets; automatically sends incoming video assets/trailers to an open transcoder for processing; automatically parses incoming XML metadata and correctly associates it with the proper VOD asset; plus more.  The anyVID-VM is designed to be installed in your secure video network.
