AUSTIN, Texas, March 10, 2014
AUSTIN, Texas, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --In celebration of its direct
distribution platform's one-year anniversary, Vimeo today introduced a
completely redesigned Vimeo On Demand experience. With a new Vimeo On Demand
storefront as the foundation, Vimeo has added themed groups of titles — called
collections — that enable viewers to discover new content in film bundles. The
redesigned Vimeo On Demand also features newly curated genres to help surface
titles distributed by Vimeo creators.
"Over the past year, we've been amazed by creators' interest in Vimeo On
Demand, and by their willingness to grow with our platform," said Dae
Mellencamp, President, Vimeo. "We want to continue to empower creators by
making sure that as many people as possible see their extraordinary work."
Highlights of the new Vimeo On Demand include:
oImproved Navigation: New Vimeo On Demand-specific navigation enables
viewers to quickly discover thousands of titles with drop-down menus that
highlight film collections and 18 curated genre pages.
oMy Library: Viewers now have their own destination that provides one-click
access to rented, purchased, and previously watched titles.
oDynamic Title Cards: Viewers can browse titles using dynamic cards that
reveal posters descriptions, and trailers — and then purchase directly
from the trailer.
As part of the re-launch, Vimeo has developed four premium collections that
showcase the varied independent content available through Vimeo On Demand.
oOscilloscope Laboratories: Oscilloscope Laboratories is a film
distribution company founded by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys.
