Ooyala, a leader in content production, distribution and monetisation solutions, has signed its latest client, HBO Asia.
With the Ooyala Flex Media Platform integrating and connecting all of HBO Asia’s existing systems, processes, and tools, HBO Asia can now streamline and automate their video workflows, with a single source of access and truth.
Ooyala CEO Jonathan Huberman (feature image) said: “HBO Asia is an innovative and leading brand for entertainment content in the region, and an important new client added to our fast growing customer list.
“We are proud to be powering their content distribution business, bringing cost savings and efficiencies to their operations, and supporting them in scaling the business effectively”.
The Ooyala Flex Media Platform – the world’s fastest growing content supply chain solution being used by innovative content owners to simplify millions of video workflows – is used to orchestrate media workflows for HBO Asia from start to finish, and as media logistics to prepare and process content for quality control, encoding, and finally, distribution across both linear and Over-The-Top (OTT) channels.
From receiving a content file, validating it, applying QC, approving it, transcoding it, packaging it with digital rights to distributing it, Ooyala Flex Media Platform streamlines the entire process, which is hosted on HBO’s premises.
HBO Asia’s head of technology & operations Vincent Teo said: “Thanks to the open and flexible Ooyala Flex Media Platform, we are now able to automate our processes and distribute content to our viewers more quickly and efficiently, without any additional resources.
“This frees up the team to focus on expanding the business and driving more revenue”.
