This article reports that Entone Technologies Inc. has unveiled an asset manager designed to automatically move titles to different server types and locations on a video-on-demand system based on usage and popularity. Such a system could gain favor among service operators as they begin to store movies, television and other on-demand fare on a variety of different storage media based on popularity. Entone's off-the-shelf StreamLiner platform can support even less expensive SATA based drives for titles at the far end of the long tail of content.
