BBC Film Network Leverages VeriSign's Kontiki

The newly launched BBC Film Network site is leveraging the Kontiki media delivery system. The service, which is free to the first 10,000 subscribers, allows emerging British filmmakers to showcase their work online and gives viewers up-to-the-minute access to the latest short film releases. The interactive online service was designed by ioko, a specialist in digital and on-demand media.

Kontiki, which was recently acquired by VeriSign, combines a P2P distribution mechanism with content tracking and auditing mechanisms.
