The MOD (media-on-demand solution) Retail Enterprise System
Mod Systems - News
SEATTLE - September 25, 2008 - MOD Systems, an industry-leading provider of digital media delivery systems for retailers, today announced that Toshiba Corporation, NCR Corporation, and others, have agreed to invest $35 million, giving the companies minority stakes in MOD Systems.
Under the initiative, consumers will download digital content to Secure Digital (SD) cards and portable devices such as mobile phones through kiosks and other self-service devices deployed, integrated and maintained by NCR at retail stores, airports, quick-service restaurants and other outlets. Toshiba will develop dedicated set-top boxes for the service, and develop and market high capacity SD cards for the system, improving the speed of downloads in the future.
Video entertainment content will be provided by major and independent studios, which will provide approximately 4,000 titles at the launch of the service. Initial content downloads will be in standard definition, and the service may also be applied to downloads of high definition content in the future.
Dette er like mye en av flere platformer hvor Toshiba og deres Flash partner SanDisk tester ut forskjellige Flash syteme plattformer for fremtiden, når oppstarts profiten i høykapasites Flash har blitt tatt ut og de trygt kan tilby 8GB - 16GB - 32GB etc. etc. for en billig penge.
Det er vel ingen tilfeldighet at SanDisk nettop annonserte at de vil komme med et SD Flash format som skal selges med ferdiglastet musikk.

(Los Angeles, CA, New York, NY, Milpitas, CA - September 22, 2008) –
Leaders in music, retail and flash memory technology today announced they’re bringing consumers an innovative, new physical music format, dubbed “slotMusic™.” microSD™ cards will soon be made available with pre-loaded, high quality, DRM-free MP3 music of top artists from EMI Music, SONY BMG, Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group.
A selection of slotMusic cards will first be available at brick-and-mortar and online stores throughout the U.S., including Best Buy and Wal-Mart, with Europe to follow.
A complete list of slotMusic albums, availability and pricing will be announced in time for the coming holiday season. SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), inventor of the ubiquitous microSD format, is leading the technology development behind slotMusic.
Dyrt enda, men man må ikke begå den misforståelsen at produksjonspris og prising er det samme.

Lieberfarb suing MOD Systems over Toshiba intro - 9/25/2008 - Video Business
"Lieberfarb signed on as a consultant with MOD in November 2006 and as part of a deal signed in June 2007 the company agreed to pay him 5% of funds it got from any investment they got through an introduction he made, according to the suit. As per the deal, Lieberfarb was paid $200,000 by MOD after an introduction to Toshiba resulted in an investment of $4 million. But, according to the filing, when Toshiba invested an additional $3 million, MOD refused to pay Lieberfarb his fee and classified the investment as “‘a non-recurring engineering fee’ as an artifice in order to avoid payment of any fee due and owing to plaintiff for Toshiba’s investment.” Lieberfarb is seeking $150,000 for consulting fees from that investment."
