"Fans can now interact with exclusive content and share their experiences with the global Star Wars community from the social network of their choice," said Julie Ryan, Vice President Marketing for Fox Home Entertainment. "Thismoment's DEC not only gives us new ways to engage with the Star Wars community globally, but also provides us a foundation to continuously engage our fans at a lower cost than building and managing multiple sites."

"With DEC, brands like Fox Home Entertainment can not only build and deliver targeted interactive social engagement experiences at scale but also create a single digital identity that lives simultaneously on many sites and devices."
Thismoment's DEC enables a single interactive brand channel to be distributed to multiple social environments, including Facebook, YouTube, the brand's site, rich media ads and mobile devices. A DEC brand channel, which is fully customizable, can be presented as a seamless experience to the consumer across any of these environments. DEC also encourages consumers to connect with each other through interactive modules and user-generated content. DEC provides all back-end enabling functionality, such as polling and UGC workflow, freeing brands and agencies from building their own solution.
