Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, or SPHE, a provider of home video distribution services, and VUDU, a provider of content delivery and media technology services, have announced that they are delivering VUDU Extras+, reportedly a new way to experience digital movies.
Select Sony Pictures titles on VUDU will now feature "Enhanced Scene Search" and "Clip & Share," along with deleted scenes, featurettes and movie trivia, available on the cloud with UltraViolet.
VUDU Extras+'s "Enhanced Scene Search" allows viewers to search movie content such as dialogue, videos, photos and extras and enables viewers to instantly jump to favorite scenes, including events inside the film. "Clip & Share" delivers social movie-watching to fans. The feature enables viewers to select a clip from the film and share it with their friends on Facebook and Twitter.
In making the announcement, David Bishop, SPHE President said, "Sony Pictures has always been at the forefront of creating innovative technologies to enhance the consumer home entertainment experience both in the physical as well as the digital spaces. VUDU Extras+ will bring the extras experience which consumers have come to expect from discs to digital retailers more consistently and with increased interactivity. Strategically, VUDU Extras+ will enhance the value proposition of digital ownership which is so key to the future success and strength of the home entertainment industry. Our intention is that it will evolve it into an industry standard for use across multiple studios and services."
VUDU Extras+ is available to preview before purchasing the movie. Consumers can access the full VUDU Extras+ experience when they purchase a movie or redeem their UltraViolet code on VUDU. VUDU users who already have the movie in their library will get access to the VUDU Extras+ experience at no extra charge. VUDU supports UltraViolet, the movie industry's initiative that allows consumers to put their purchased movies into a cloud-based digital library and keep track of them safely and securely.
