I would suspect it was a trendy way of saying it was a direct to video documentary, smearing two words. The term “mook”, a magazine-book hybrid, has been very common for decades so I’d imagine it’s a take off on that.

Fushigi no Umi no Nadia: Perfect Collection Memorial Box (1990) [JSLD-1004] is also a NHK VOOK.

Ha! I guess it means nothing then, since Nadia was never a book or a magazine and it wasn’t direct to video. I guess it means “NHK made it”.

The Japanese Wikipedia mentions that the label KSS (Kamakura Super Station) was used to release on home media NHK productions, and later changed to VOOK:

Julien, could you please add it to the collection options? It would make it easier to catalog them..

I don’t think it’s a “collection” at all, just a label. There is zero relationship between the two Vook titles shown other than the publisher.

It would rather be a publisher/label.

Since we already have KSS Films, I'll add NHK VOOK as well.
