 MULTICHANNEL NEWS WRITES ABOUT VIVID TV -- Broadcast trade journal MultiChannel News interviewed Vivid’s broadcasting and internet chief Michael H. Klein this week for an article headlined: “New Technologies for Mature Audiences… VividTV’s Michael Klein to experiment with adult-genre virtual reality.” Programming Editor R. Thomas Umstead wrote: “Vivid Entertainment is looking to bring its adult television entertainment offerings into the world of new digital technology. Currently in discussions with distributors about launching a companion linear channel to its VividTV service, the company is also looking to expand the brand with a proposed VividTV Virtual Reality site to launch later this fall.” Here are some excerpts from Michael’s interview: “Obviously, we’re trying to stay ahead of all the new technologies…Everything we shoot now and license is available in HD...We’re also looking to develop some apps for the service as well…We’re actually preparing to launch a VR site, Vivid Virtual, that will offer our viewers adult content in VR. If you have a virtual reality player — whether you have the Oculus [Rift headsets], the Samsung [Gear VR] or virtually any VR equipment you have — you’ll be able to subscribe to access the site and see our content. We’re getting our production up and running and new VR content is being shot now…We’re still exploring (4K). We have some operators who have inquired about that and we are exploring it, but to be honest, we want to make sure that 4K is not another 3D that ultimately doesn’t work best for our viewers…” Asked what’s driving the business today, Michael replied: “For Vivid, it’s still broadcasting -- that seems to be what’s really growing for us. We also have the websites. Everything took a hit for a while when all the free stuff began to appear on the Web, but it’s starting to grow again because more people are recognizing where the better content is, whether it’s on the premium sites or the TV channels. For us, it’s about getting quality programming channels launched in the U.S. and expanding internationally.”
