Vidiator gains Hong Kong customer

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 1:32 PM

Bellevue-based Vidiator said today that PCCW mobile, one of the largest wireless operators in Hong Kong, will be using its platform to deliver streaming music to its subscribers.

The service is based on Vidiator's Xenon Music platform, and will be called "MOOV on mobile."

"MOOV on mobile" is a monthly subscription service, where customers pay for access to streaming music.

The Vidiator service will include features such as encoding and streaming capabilities, intensive billing and authorization interfaces, and personal playlists with loop, shuffle and fast track switching.

This is the second local company to announce a mobile music service in Asia this week.

Yesterday, Seattle-based Melodeo announced that they are working with Warner Music Group and Sony BMG Music through a joint venture in China to distribute music and other content over mobile phones.

As part of the partnership, the two record labels invested about $2 million in Access China Media Solutions, a joint venture between Melodeo and Access, a Tokyo-based technology company.

The companies said the partnership has been formed to make it easer to sell music in China, where piracy has been a problem. They added that mobile phones are inherently more secure and feature a built-in payment system.
