1.  VOD servers are often used to directly record IPTV channel streams for later use. But note that it's also possible to directly transfer media files onto a VOD server using ftp. This feature can be used to archive media, or build a library.

2.  VOD servers can simultaneously playout multicast TV channels, such as corporate TV or showreel channels, while also providing several unicast video streams to individual users, for personalised control of their viewing.
