(LAS VEGAS) -- LockStream Corporation, a leader in secure content delivery software, today announced a global content distribution agreement with Bluebare Entertainment, Inc., the premiere broadband affiliate of Vivid Entertainment Group, a leader in adult entertainment.
Under the terms of the agreement, LockStream's software will ensure the global distribution of more than 50 Vivid titles across all platforms, including IP delivery enabled set-top boxes, PDAs and wireless devices, as well as on an IP Video on Demand basis. The announcement was made today at Internext, the world's largest Adult Internet/Audio text tradeshow.
``Today's announcement with Bluebare and Vivid is another example of how LockStream's software is helping companies get past the roadblocks of digital distribution,'' said David Goodman, CEO, LockStream. ``Offering unparalleled security and wireless capabilities, the LockStream software is perfect for adult entertainment content owners who want to realize the added revenue opportunities of digital distribution.''
``LockStream offers the first security solution that also pays attention to the full consumer experience and makes it easier than ever for consumers to enjoy the programming through any device,'' said Gary Thompson, Vice President of Business Development, Vivid Interactive.
Bluebare Entertainment, a content distributor that represents Vivid Entertainment Group's programming, brought together Vivid and LockStream. ``At Bluebare Entertainment, we're helping introduce our clients to new technologies that are making secure content distribution a reality and we're very excited to bring together these two industry leaders,'' said Peter Walker, CEO, Bluebare Entertainment, Inc.
For content distributors and owners, LockStream's software offers the following benefits:
It's secure. Featuring multiple layers of protection, the LockStream software enforces copyrights, prevents piracy and tracks all facets of media distribution.
It's wireless. To make wireless distribution happen, it's all about the file size. And LockStream cracked the code with a file size ten times smaller than competing solutions in the marketplace. It's easy to use. Wherever consumers want content, the experience is never bogged down with time-consuming installation or maintenance processes. And, it's a one-step download. Plus, it's a one-of-a-kind experience. The LockStream software allows the player to morph into any shape or size and it completely matches the look and the feel of the programming.
