About the DVD & Digital Catalog
Janson Media publishes and manufactures DVDs and digital files, and distributes them directly through its network of wholesalers and subdistributors into a marketplace that ultimately includes 15,000+ public libraries, 25,000+ “brick and mortar” retailers, including video stores, museum gift shops, supermarkets, bookstores, home electronics stores, and other retailers, and dozens of direct-mail accounts. All of our titles are also available directly from Amazon.com, and virtually all online retailers that sell DVDs.
Key retailers in the DVD marketplace today include Amazon, Netflix, Apple’s iTunes Store, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco, Target, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, Blockbuster, Readers Digest, and Columbia House. We reach them all, either directly or through our distribution partners. We also have a significant reach into the Catholic and Christian marketplaces. Our vertical marketing reaches DVD buyers in the hospital and institutional markets, the State and National Parks networks of gift shops, and the not-for-profit universe of schools, colleges, universities and foundations.
Digital Rights are available to all titles in our catalog. Digital files are available for both download-to-own (DTO) or short term download-to-rent (DTR) from a wide and growing range of online partners such as iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon’s Video on Demand, among many others.
At the start of 2012, our DVD Catalog now numbers over 250 exclusive titles. Our categories include award-winning documentaries and educational programs in the categories of travel, history, health and exercise, cooking, spirituality, pop culture, art, music, how-to, and self-help. Our children’s and family films provide a wholesome alternative to the entertainment fare offered by the mainstream media. We have an especially strong lineup of American history DVDs, with depth in both World War II and Civil War history, as well as a large and growing collection of travel programs. We also publish a Catholic DVD Catalog.
Outside the USA and Canada, we employ multiple distribution strategies on a territory-by-territory basis. We ship packaged DVDs directly to some partners in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia. We license rights to DVD labels in over 30 countries around the world.
