KIT digital, Inc. a leading video management software and services company, today announced that it will be demonstrating the latest version of its Video On Demand (VOD) Store solution at IBC2012 (Stand 1.D71, Amsterdam RAI, 7-11 September 2012).

The VOD Store solution can be integrated with a wide variety of leading digital rights management (DRM) providers through Cosmos Guard, the platform’s DRM abstraction layer. Cosmos Guard gives access to a comprehensive set of content protection options across a wide range of devices.
Alongside Cosmos’ improved editorial user interface, the new VOD Store solution to be launched at IBC2012 also includes support for multi-channel authoring and publishing, allowing editorial and business users to target content to different devices and geographies. It also includes full multi-lingual support including RTL languages and in-context editing allowing editorial staff to quickly modify promotions and other aspects of the user experience.
