Media Network Unifies With Its Video Apps
As the Post-production process continues to migrate to the cloud, Ownzones is taking a leadership position in introducing many cloud-based features, with its proprietary platform, Ownzones Connect.
With years of research in the platform, it's designed to conform and distribute digital content in the most efficient and streamlined way to all devices. It also acts as a Post house in the cloud, with state-of-the-art features in editing, conversion and encoding, motion graphics, sound mixing and editing.
By integrating two of its most powerful tools into one solution, the OTT EntTech company has unified its cloud-based media logistics platform with its consumer video applications. This allows content creators to cut costs and manage content by using the App framework no matter what technology they're using.
Chief Technology Officer, Aaron Sloman explained further, "By essentially re-architecting our backend and API, we're now leveraging the latest technologies for improved scalability and flexibility. Unifying our Ownzones Connect and consumer video applications allows for real-time changes to the content and discovery experience that also helps engage and monetize audiences."
There are many new highlights to the new service, the biggest including a choice of ready-to-use design templates that can have an App up and running, based on the most effective layout for the client's audience. The unified plan also touts the ability to instantly localize an app to multiple regions, by simply selecting them from the console, eliminating the need to develop different apps for each language. All major world cities included. Plus, geo-restriction options to prevent access by regions where content is not licensed or available.
In addition, a cloud-based data warehouse and analytics integrations allows the company to create a better experience for users and gain insights around content performance and trends. Dan Goman, CEO, revealed, "From the beginning, we've found ways to transform the experience for those hoping to manage and distribute content in the OTT and mobile space. In unifying our Ownzones Connect and consumer video applications, we're taking this to a whole new level – giving our clients access to features like instant localization, analytics integration and more."
Specifically, the platform features an array of capabilities that work with each other to create the ultimate Post house in the cloud for IMF. This includes the Cloud IMF transcoder, the Native Cloud CPL Builder, Cloud-based CPL Source Previewer, Cloud-based IMF Playback, Supplemental Packager and Elastic Parallel Transcoding.
