Vimond Improves Workflow for its Rights Manager
Vimond Media Solutions is launching an improved version of the Rights Manager module. The solution makes rights management a fully integrated part of the content management processes, and replaces the manual ad hoc tools that many broadcasters currently use, the firm says.
“Vimond’s Rights Manager organises the cumbersome and fragmented domain of contracts management into a tightly integrated, automated workflow,” says Glenn Pedersen, CTO Vimond Media Solutions. “It saves time and minimizes duplication and errors, and therefore reduces the risk of legal havoc for broadcasters.
“With Rights Manager, contract managers can track a contract through its full lifecycle. Using the well-designed user interface, rights managers can stay on top of the multitude of publishing regions, countries and technical platforms. Based on the contractual rights, the license windows can be exported directly to the Content Manager, and the content and metadata ingest process can also be fully automated.”
New features being launched at the 2017 NAB Show include simplifying the management of geographic regions in order to control global rights, and allowing synchronisation of all content for a given region via the interface. An improved content rights scheduling workflow visualises when content is made available, and ensures it is in line with contract restrictions. Finally, the updated content management workflow makes it easy to reuse the same content in other contracts.
“Until now, many broadcasters have managed their content rights in external systems, which are not integrated with the video CMS,” adds Pedersen. “This results in manual copying of complex data between systems, which is prone to manual error. In addition, it is difficult for rights managers to maintain a full overview over multiple dimensions such as region, country, and technical viewing platform. By reducing the manual steps needed to transfer rights management data between our system and third parties, we will make the process more efficient and less error-prone.”
