Hope Channel

How we helped the Hope Channel with their DVD Manufacturing On Demand (MOD) services

Hope Channel is a Christian lifestyle television network owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The network is based in Silver Spring, though it operates globally: with 44 Hope Channels worldwide.

The Situation

Hope Channel was hosting their conference session during July 2nd to 11th, 2015 in San Antonio, TX which was being attended by thousands of their followers. Their organization wanted to distribute the live content to their members so the members could go home and listen at their convenience. Additionally, they wanted the content to be available on their web site for those who couldn’t buy at the convention or couldn’t attend.

The Challenge

  • Hope Channel wanted to sell DVDs for the content produced at the conference and also make it available for purchase at the conference. However, many of their attendees were out-of-country residents who would rather pick up these titles at the show than have it mailed to them.
  • Hope Channel wanted to offer these titles on their web store without worrying about having to manage an inventory for these titles.

The Result

The Acutrack team proposed and decided to make a special provision to help this project. We set up an onsite production facility at the convention floor. Our team produced the same finished high quality DVD package on demand, in the quantities and time frame required by Hope Channel. Acutrack took the responsibility of sending their personnel, equipment and resources to produce DVD titles at the convention floor and allowing Hope Channel team to focus on creating the content and distributing. We became a true partner and extension of Hope Channel’s team at the convention.

Additionally, we also integrated with their Shopify based eCommerce platform. Any DVD title purchased after the convention is made available for sale. This was managed by Acutrack’s MOD DVD team.
