NS8 Corp. has partnered with Akimbo Systems to launch its iWAVE Interactive services in the U.S. for the first time. Akimbo will be the exclusive North American partner for iWAVE and will use the service to power its Internet video storefront and integrated back-end management system.
Akimbo has developed a turnkey solution for content providers and distributors that allows them to set their own terms and financial models on their own websites and platforms, thus giving them more control and greater opportunity to realize the full revenue-generating potential of their product. In addition, Akimbo offers VOD content on its own website with an array of "channels" organized into genres that include Anime, Health & Wealth, Exploration & Adventure, Family & Fun, and Sports, as well as special interest TV series, animation, movies, documentaries, and music. Akimbo also syndicates one of the largest VOD libraries to MSOs, Telcos, and other secure platforms.
