    Imagen Media Portal Chosen By BBC Studios

    New content portal for the main commercial arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation – BBC Studios – provides a bespoke media hub for their UK Format Sales team

    Imagen, leading provider of video management and distribution services, today announced that BBC Studios has selected Imagen’s platform to support and organise its ‘Format Sales Catalogue’. The platform better connects the internationally located Format Sales teams to the entire BBC Format Sales Catalogue. The catalogue holds a vast range of assets including audio assets, artwork, production documentation and screener video proxies created in the UK and internationally. Media is collated and managed in the UK, providing an essential tool kit for the international teams with rapid retrieval, whilst simplifying file delivery of worldwide versions of shows.

    The fully branded site was delivered ahead of schedule, taking less than four weeks from project planning to sign off by BBC Studios. The portal contains extensive variations of shows from around the world, as well as providing functionality to enable content to be delivered back to them after the formats have been recreated.

    The new platform delivers a searchable and intuitive interface which is independently populated with BBC Studio’s latest resources; whilst enhancing and promoting the brand. User access to content is based on granular permissions, with capabilities and controls over content determined by individual remits.

    Kerry Freeman from Imagen adds “Imagen’s solution was the right fit for BBC Studio’s Format Sales Catalogue. Enabling the UK team to have full control of the extensive catalogue, and providing the international teams with all the materials they need; in one branded online portal. Imagen removed manual processes and collated materials that were disparately stored.”
