ZOO Digital Has Become hoopla digital’s Official Aggregator

Providing a fast and efficient way for independent TV and movie makers, distributors and studios to deliver their content directly to Hoopla’s online public lending library, ZOO Digital has become an official aggregator for Hoopla Digital.

Adding to the list of major TV and movie streaming services that have selected ZOO to become a preferred supplier for subtitling, Hoopla’s dynamic service enables consumers to borrow digital video, music, eBooks, audiobooks and comics from mobile devices and desktop browsers by signing in using a library card from participating public library systems.

Three online platforms have adopted ZOO’s aggregation services this year alone, including global online retailer Apple, who recently approved ZOO as an aggregator for TV series.

“ZOO is delighted to be able to deliver TV and movie content to the hoopla online lending library. Our partnership with hoopla reinforces our position as one of the few providers fully equipped to distribute to all the major online platforms quickly and cost-effectively while always maintaining outstanding quality.”
— Gordon Doran, President, ZOO Digital

Having developed ZOOstudio — a revolutionary cloud-based content management platform, that ensures compliant, high quality and efficient digital delivery — ZOO Digital has been able to provide a groundbreaking system that validates packages to meet hoopla’s technical, metadata and quality standards.

Expected to launch in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand in 2017, hoopla already has over 1,300,000 registered users (and adds between 60,000 – 70,000 new users each month) following its launch in the US and Canada in July of 2013. This makes hoopla a new market opportunity for content owners and distributors as well as a fast-growing digital lending service for local libraries around the world.
