Vubiquity will provide a wide selection of premium film and TV content available to rent or buy, in the highest quality — Ultra HD (4K) — hosted and served from Vubiquity’s Content Cloud platform.

Under a new five-year, expanded agreement with ocilion, Vubiquity will provide a full end-to-end content management service including licensing, processing, delivery and workflow management.
