Our New Digital Platform is Live!
Dear New Day Digital Customer,
We’re pleased to announce that our New Day Digital streaming platform has been integrated with the New Day Films website and you will now be able to access your films at www.newday.com. With this upgrade in place, there will no longer be a separate New Day Digital platform. You will now be able to purchase and stream our films directly through the New Day Films site, and you’ll also be able to purchase DVDs from the same film page. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new fully integrated site.
All of the existing licenses that you have purchased through your New Day Digital account will continue to be operational, but to access your account on the integrated site you will have to reset your password. To reset your password, please go to www.newday.com, click on LOGIN, click on Request New Password, Enter your email address and click on Email New Password. You will receive an email with a link to reset your password.
Once you have logged in and changed your password, you can view your purchased films by going to:
- My Account > Orders
- Click on an Order Number
- Click on a Title
Select Licensee Tools to view all your licensed films and to see your purchase and expiration dates. Here you will also find your new streaming links for institutional use.
We want to make this upgrade as smooth as possible for you, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. If you have any general questions regarding our new service, please contact Karen Knox (). For technical support, please contact Andrea Debellis ().
Best regards and thank you for your patience,
The New Day Steering Committee
For institutions: When you purchase a 5-year institutional stream or a 14-day In-Class license, NDD provides a link based on your IP address or IP address range. After your purchase, simply add these data to your Account Profile in the space provided. NDD streams will easily integrate with class management software, such as Blackboard. For complete instructions, go to our FAQ Page.
For distance learning: NDD works with your proxy server to provide streams for off-campus viewers. For complete setup instructions, go to our FAQ Page.
For individuals: A high-speed internet connection and audio card is all that’s required.
New Day Digital provides complete streaming infrastructure, so you don’t have to!
With NDD’s completely reliable and secure system, your institution can have all the advantages of an in-house streaming system, without the overhead. Even if your organization has its own system, using NDD to access New Day Films frees up capacity for your servers to carry content that isn’t available through remote streaming.
Streaming vs. DVD
Streaming is media on steroids, providing the capability to reach many more viewers, at any time of day, anywhere within the reach of your institutional intranet system. Today’s students expect media to be instantly available, and with streaming through NDD, it can be - a benefit that adds substantially to the attractiveness of your institution. And since accessibility = value, streaming New Day films increases their value, at a fraction of the cost of installing your own streaming system.
NDD films are offered as high-quality Flash streams that can be played on any computer with the Flash browser plug in (free download), which is already installed on most computers. On Demand films stream at 400kbps or 700kbps. Institutional streams run at 700kbps or 1500kbps. For comparison, YouTube films stream at either 300kbps or 900kbps.
How does NDD streaming work?
