Endemol Shine

Endemol Shine

Endemol Shine is the largest independent television and digital production company in the world.

Within 30 countries it has a global network of around 90 companies which produce over 350 multi genre series a year. Across the 90 companies there are currently around 29,000 hours of content being distributed.




Imagen manages and provides easy access to the vast catalogue of content across its many subsidiaries. Imagen contains a number of modules that are designed to work together in a coordinated way, reducing the manual intervention required to manage very large-scale media archives. It includes a customisable web interface, automated workflows, flexible storage options and easy integration via its API.

The platform provides an internal programme library for staff and an online catalogue for each subsidiary under the Endemol Shine umbrella. The system plays a vital role in monetising content from the likes of Tiger Aspect, Initial, Zeppotron, DSP and others.


Staff and B2B customers will now be able to search Endemol Shine’s vast catalogue of programmes and stream the digitised video via a secure web interface.


Imagen’s granular permission controls ensure that access to content is tightly managed and external users are required to register to view the archive. The systems’ configurable permission structures also enable Endemol Shine staff to set up a range of features and controls for its internal and external visitors based on role, allowing users to stream, download, create collections, share, leave comments and update catalogue metadata online.

“The new system will provide a glossy, fully searchable and easy to use system that puts Endemol and our associated production companies at the forefront of digital asset management and publishing. Imagen has enabled us to build an archive system that’s feature-rich with metadata, making it searchable and accessible.”
