Internode will put its video-capable national broadband network through its paces after commencing a Video on Demand partnership with Melbourne-based Bluebox Devices.
Internode has signed an agreement with Bluebox Devices that will offer its customers access to the Australian-developed Video on Demand (VoD) system.
Through this relationship, Internode customers will be among the first in the world to sample a new kind of content-on-demand system developed by Bluebox Devices.
It leverages Internode's VoD/IPTV-capable ADSL2+ infrastructure which is deployed nationally.
The ISP's managing director, Simon Hackett, said the agreement with Bluebox provided Internode customers with an opportunity to try out an engaging new online experience.
"We are excited at the technology being developed by Bluebox," he said.
"Bluebox is the first cab off the rank in terms of Internode's partnerships and strategies that are intended to offer our customers opportunities and services in the Video on Demand realm in the next 12 months."
At the same time Internode will provide Bluebox with technnical support and access to its network to use as a test bed for upcoming developments.
Bluebox Devices CEO, Robert Yearsley, described its VoD service as 'revolutionary' and in the coming months will work to develop the best user experience possible.
