Ira Opper, President, Opper Sports Productions said, "We are stoked to be part of the TGR team and provide our new digital delivery platform as they have a proven track record in the ski and snowboard film world. The NOD technology is the first of it kind on the web and now we are offering a great collection of movies for international delivery and viewing. Their website has a large number of hungry visitor and now this will satisfy their appetite for their quality movies."
According to Teton Gravity's Research's co-founder Todd Jones, "We could not be more excited about this. Digital distribution is the future and it is here now. Our customers can now access our films at anytime and from anywhere in the world. We evaluated a number of platforms that would enable us to distribute our films digitally on tetongravity.com. Opper Sports Production's NOD Platform video is by far the simplest and most 'powderful' technology that we looked at. We are most excited about the international impact this will have. In the past our international customers would have to pay large shipping and tax fees to purchase our videos. Now our entire library is available for under $15 per film."
