FAST AND AFFORDABLE ACCESS FOR ALL SWISS LIBRARIES IN TIMES OF SOCIAL DISTANCING: VIDEO-ON-DEMAND PLATFORM AVA HOME WITH EUROPEAN ART-HOUSE, DOCUMENTARY AND SHORT FILMS FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY!
AVA Home Switzerland (ch.home.ava.watch) is a special nation-wide streaming platform that was created by streaming provider AVA Library as an answer to the coronavirus pandemic. At the time of social distancing, a unified AVA platform for Switzerland gives library users across the country an opportunity to access acclaimed and up-and-coming art-house, short and documentary films not commonly available on other video on demand platforms directly through the digital offer of local library, university or cultural institution.
Among 200 films specifically curated for AVA Home, users can find inspiring stories and topics of interest, learn about the lives of different communities, enjoy the masterpieces from acclaimed directors and discover the rising names in contemporary cinematography safely from home.
The costs of the service for libraries are minimised to the traffic costs ONLY. They refer to the entire period of 6 months in total and depend on the size of the institution:
up to 15.000 users = 1.500 CHF
15.000 - 50.000 users = 3.000 CHF
50.000 - 100.000 users = 6.000 CHF
Bigger than 100.000 users = on request
Immediate access to AVA Home can be provided via the VPN network of the institutions or through distribution of passwords via member libraries.
All internet users can visit the platform and browse through content via URL: ch.home.ava.watch
To start streaming films, users of member libraries can register via one of the participating institutions directly. No additional costs for users will apply.
Any library, educational or cultural institution in Switzerland can request a membership with AVA Home Switzerland instantly.
