What's new for retailers? HP is offering its new Video Merchant Services (VMS) business, powering online video Web stores for retailers and providing content fulfillment services. This new business enables retailers to offer a fun and engaging video shopping experience for packaged video products and downloads, unlike anything available on the market today.
HP's first VMS customer, Wal-Mart, unveiled a beta version of its video download store powered by HP. The new site allows Wal-Mart customers to easily discover, shop for and purchase the movie and television titles they want with the option of downloading the digital versions to a PC or portable video player in addition to purchasing the DVD for mail delivery.
HP services will allow retailers to fulfill the requests of consumers wanting video content in a variety of ways, including digital downloads, DVDs manufactured on demand, traditional packaged DVDs and emerging video formats such as HD-DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. Additionally, the service will enable retailers to seamlessly merchandise broad and deep video catalogs across a variety of digital and physical formats.
