Vividas, one of the world’s leading developers and providers of video streaming technology and related products, announces that its technology has enabled the web based viewing of The Secret, a 95 minute feature length movie developed and produced by Rhonda Byrne and Paul Harrington of Prime Time Productions in Melbourne, Australia.
This is thought to be the first time globally that a feature length movie has been premiered exclusively over the Internet on a pay-per-view basis.
Prime Time’s Paul Harrington, says: “The Secret reveals an age old mystery known to many of the greatest achievers in history, yet kept from the public at large. Our aim has always been to reveal this knowledge to millions across the planet. We are thrilled with the opportunity to reach out to the world through our alliance with Vividas. We are taking film and television distribution to the leading edge of technology.”
Vividas’ technology gives viewers of The Secret the ability to rent and immediately watch this multi-million dollar production over the web with full screen, broadcast quality pictures and sound. Vividas enhancements included with the release of The Secret include copy protection, on-screen playback controls and the ability to resume viewing from the same point in the film after restarting the computer.
Vividas’ CEO, Richard Collins, stated: “ This is a very exciting project for Vividas – not only is it a first for us but it may well be the first time a full length feature film has premiered online rather than in cinemas or on TV. We believe Vividas technology will enhance the reach, quality and simplicity of the viewing experience.”
Broadband users worldwide (temporarily, outside Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea) can click play the movie for US$ 4.95 and can purchase the DVD at http://www.whatisthesecret.tv.
