Shaping the future of video supply chain technology and OTT

Mission

OWNZONES' mission is to become the driving force for technological advancements in the entertainment industry. We leverage technological solutions to give audiences greater accessibility to content while helping our partners reach more users, more effectively.

History

We began in 2010 as a content company focused on breaking the industry conventions of bundled linear content (much like today’s Amazon channels). After creating, launching and operating over 400 digital channels, managing over 5 million assets, and distributing to over 25 countries, we realized our key to success was in the technologies we built and now offer as a solution.

We leveraged our experience managing content channels to push the digital media supply chain industry forward with our core offering, OWNZONES Connect, a fully cloud-native solution utilizing a component-based media workflow. Connect’s core competencies are in IMF, parallel scaling, and geographically distributed workflows.

Values

Our core values provide a framework for communicating and collaborating at our best, whether we’re struggling through a particularly complex project, attending an industry event or celebrating an achievement.

In short, it ensures that we retain awesome team dynamics and build great products.
