Ultraviolet

noun Compounding
Not to be confused with the meaning of beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum. This is the new digital library that flixster is promoting. You can purchase a movie or TV show, add it to the ultraviolet library, and enjoy it anywhere you have access to it-phone, TV, computer, etc.
 
It is a simple compounding term of ultra + violet. It is a trademarked name by the company Flixster which tries to compete with Netflix. The name ultraviolet is hardly fitting, but the idea is pretty good.
Etymology : The prefix ultra- comes from Latin and violet comes from old French. The term ultraviolet was first coined in 1840 to define the spectrum beyond violet. It now is an invention of a personal digital library.
