Featuring a complex dependency hierarchy, VEPR’s success is based on the system deselecting channels that conflict with others, or selecting channels that are inclusive of another selection.  The system also calculates live pricing, and automatically upgrades channel packages if there is no cost to the user.

Integrated with Adobe’s Media Server, information on each channel was available with full text, images, and video.  Graphic design was handled out-of-house.
