We are pleased to bring to your attention that educational institutions have the option to stream The Invisible Red Thread! A growing trend on the market, a streaming option may be best for your institution. Depending on your needs, the documentary can be hosted on internal servers, giving you complete control over what users have access. This can also be done externally using security restrictions.
Purchasing a DVD copy is still a viable option. The limitations of a DVD copy, however, may not suit your specific needs. DVD copies may become damaged or lost. They must also be maintained in a DVD library, limiting how long someone can have access to it, as well as how many people may watch it at one time. Streams can be accessed anytime and anywhere there is an internet connection, and it also requires fewer resources to manage.
Currently, customers usually purchase both the DVD and the streaming rights, but there soon might be a time in the future where the streaming option will dominate. There are three streaming options available:
- Temporary Stream – a unique url will be accessible for as long as it is required.
- Internal/External Server Stream – the institution purchases the streaming rights and hosts the documentary on their internal servers, or access the documentary using a proxy server.
- Pay-Per-View – the institution purchases a limited number of views. A promotional code allows access to the stream on an external site.
