Los Angeles, USA – September 02, 2010

Venera Technologies, the leading video solutions company is pleased to announce that Moviebeam has selected “Pulsar – Automated Content Verifier System” to QC all of its content before it reaches the guests in the hotels.

Valuable Technologies Inc is a US based VOD provider for the US Hospitality market. VTI’s Moviebeam service is offered to hotels all across the United States. New Hollywood and independent movies are regularly received from the studios which are securely delivered to all participating hotel rooms nationwide.

“We want our hotel guests to have a great movie experience, so we have to make sure every movie has gone through QC”, said Prashant Vithlani, Vice President of Operations at VTI. The manual process of doing the QC was time consuming, costly and error prone. “Aside from the high cost of the manual QC itself, on occasions where we miss something and the movie’s quality is less than perfect, there is a real cost associated with re-distribution of the effected movie, not to mention the loss of customer goodwill’, said Vithlani.

By using Pulsar, VTI is able to QC all of its content in fraction of the time it used to take, and be confident of the result. “Taking advantage of the efficiency and accuracy of Pulsar, we are now able to QC every movie, have saved in our operational costs, and have increased our customer satisfaction”, said Vithlani.

“We are glad to work with Valuable in ensuring that they can quickly check their content for any issues and take corrective action. With Pulsar, VTI can improve their operational efficiency with fast turnaround of the content”, says Vikas Singhal, Director – Business Development, Venera.

Pulsar is a file-based content verifier system that automates the QC processes in a content workflow. It simplifies content approval at all stages, from production to delivery. It helps broadcasters and content providers ensure consistent content quality with improved operational efficiency. Pulsar is a high performance system, capable for handling large content volumes at blistering pace. It’s easy and intuitive interface makes the user instantly comfortable with the product.
