OWNZONES Connect is a cutting edge platform disrupting the way digital content for the media and entertainment industry is managed and distributed. Here is what you need to know:
What Is OWNZONES Connect?
OWNZONES Connect is designed to simplify OTT delivery and enable content creators to reach their audiences worldwide.
Connect is a cloud-based, SaaS, Media Logistics and Unified App Framework which offers powerful, innovative, and scalable end-to-end supply chain solutions for the Media & Entertainment industry.
Who Is OWNZONES Connect For?
OWNZONES Connect is a highly, sought-after solution for movie studios and service vendors, such as post production and encoding houses, in addition to broadcasters, independent film creators and OEM’s.
How is Service Provided on OWNZONES Connect?
We bring your digital assets into a cloud-based asset management system.
We organize, QC and create mezzanine files for our film and television partners; and, create transcode profiles for various specs for deliverables to VOD, EST, SVOD and AVOD platforms, as well as international and domestic broadcasters.
We package, for digital delivery, metadata, artwork, and video assets to multiple platforms and handle digital delivery of transcoded content to various platforms via Aspera, Signiant, FTP and MRSSEndFragment.
IMF (Interoperable Master Format) is a SMPTE standard for providing a single, interchangeable master file format and structure for the distribution of content globally.
OWNZONES is at the forefront of this revolutionary technology. Prior to IMF, a widely-distributed major motion picture would require thousands of different versions in order to support multiple market segment distribution.
What are the Features and Benefits of our IMF Transcoder Solution?
Our cloud-based IMF transcoder creates one true file-based final master, eliminating the need for multiple versions.
With our parallel cloud transcoder, we take advantage of spot instances by spinning up machines on the fly and simply pay for just for the minutes used.
As a result, we’re able to process a 2 ½ hour movie within 6 minutes. In addition, because the cloud has unlimited scale, we can run as many concurrent jobs as needed all around the world.
IMF produces very large files, up to 2TB in size. And, if your IMF masters are stored in the cloud, you cannot preview the movie without downloading the files.
In response to this, we have developed a solution leveraging our parallel scaling transcoder approach which allows users to open the composition playlist (CPL) and initiate live playback in the cloud to any HTML5 browser.
This allows users to review and perform QC in lieu of lengthy and costly downloads. In addition, we are developing a full browser-based CPL editor which will allow for real-time movie editing in the cloud.
OWNZONES Connect is expected to be the world’s fastest, most scalable IMF transcoder & packager by January 2018. These innovations are breaking the barriers for companies to adopt IMF.
Industry leaders who have seen our product call it “revolutionary… what the industry has been waiting for to enable IMF for everyone
How Much Does OWNZONES Connect Cost?
Our pricing model has been characterized as “disruptive, a true game changer” given our ability to fully leverage the benefits of the cloud.
Since we support a self-service SaaS model, in addition to full-service, we structure pricing in accordance with the goals and objectives of our valued clients.
