​Imagen Highlight Global Distribution at IBC

Imagen will be showcasing its new Global Distribution feature at IBC2016. This function automatically replicates large libraries of media to hundreds of global locations using the public cloud.

The solution is said to create an economically viable answer to monetising content across multiple territories, offering a subscription based VOD platform for a B2C audience. It also caters for production and broadcast partners’ high resolution needs, through a secure, scalable and highly customisable web platform.

Tom Blake, Managing Director, Imagen, said, “While traditional CDNs are ideal for streaming live or on-demand video to consumer audience’s worldwide, content owners with large libraries of high resolution files would find hosting these files on the edge of a CDN to be sub economic, resulting in compromises being made such as offering a reduced library, low res proxies or mezzanine files. Imagen’s Global Distribution Network eliminates complex work arounds, slow delivery and a poor experience.”

Imagen’s Global Distribution Network has already been selected by a number of major sports brands to facilitate distribution to broadcast clients and monetise their archives across new territories. The latest release of Imagen Enterprise Video Platform also boasts online subscription VOD packages, automatic transcript generation and advanced user analytics for insight into audience engagement.
