Exent Expands Games on Demand
Turnkey Service with Content Aggregation
BETHESDA, MD. — Dec. 6, 2004 — Exent Technologies Inc., a global leader in
secure digital software delivery technologies, is launching a new content
aggregation service for its turnkey customers who provide Games-on-Demand
services to consumers.
Exent’s content aggregation service
will further reduce capital expenditures and time required to launch
Games-on-Demand offerings, already minimized by Exent’s turnkey service.
Companies using Exent-powered turnkey services can easily add new games to their
Games-on-Demand services without having to approach publishers directly for
Exent has already secured more than
500 titles for its content aggregation service. The catalog includes games of
many different genres such as action/adventure, first person shooters and
children’s entertainment/educational offerings. Exent’s customers offer games
through tiered subscriptions and other business models.
"Publishers are embracing the fact
that Games-on-Demand services, powered by Exent, continue to show market
expansion potential, creating new revenue windows and reaching new audiences,"
said Zvi Levgoren, Exent’s CEO. " The increased speed that hit titles are going
from store shelves to Games-on-Demand testifies to the confidence publishers
have in this opportunity. We’re gratified that publishers see that the
Games-on-Demand industry is maturing and trust Exent to handle distribution
deals for their licensed properties."
The Exent turnkey service provides
all the elements needed for broadband service providers, consumer portals or
consumer brand owners to digitally distribute games to consumers through a
subscription, rental, try-before-you-buy or purchase model. In addition to the
new content aggregation, Exent’s turnkey service consists of technology
infrastructure, consumer customer
service, billing and Web destination. The different elements can be delivered as
a complete package or in individualized configurations to enable companies to
select the optimal combination of outsourced and in-house operations.
