OverDrive Announces Streaming Video and Audio Services

OverDrive Announces Streaming Video and Audio Services for Libraries and Schools

Quote:
(Seattle, WA) - January 22, 2013 - Today OverDrive announced that it will enhance its industry-leading library service platform with streaming video and audio technology. The new services will improve ease of use and device compatibility for OverDrive-hosted video, audiobook and music collections at libraries and schools around the world. OverDrive will demonstrate its streaming technology this weekend (Jan. 25- 28) at the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting at Seattle's Washington State Convention Center, Booth 1115.

Scheduled for launch later this year, OverDrive's streaming services will extend the reach of libraries' digital collections thanks to virtually unlimited device compatibility. Users will enjoy quick and easy access to their library's catalog of OverDrive-hosted video, audiobook and music on any device with a web browser and an Internet connection. The streaming technology will dramatically enhance discovery and access to libraries' existing collections of WMV and WMA titles, pending publisher approval.

Oh no! I hope they won't change the existing audio model, but, instead, offer streaming audio in addition to it.
My iPod is not connected, and that's all I use for audiobooks
Plus, it would make content less accessible to lower income patrons.
