The Future of Premium Video Distribution

The end is nigh for the DVD Screener
Find out how to avoid piracy, delight clients and win over reviewers with our new white paper

Protect your content – and your profit

Did you know that 187.4 million people watched the first episode of Game of Thrones (Series 7) illegally, compared to 16.1 million who watched it legally? (muso.com)

Small fortunes are sunk in production costs for TV series, blockbuster films and glossy ads – and yet they are often circulated for review using DVDs, low cost or even free file transfer tools which leave them open to piracy, reflect badly on brand and provide a poor user experience for customers, reviewers or judging panels.

There is a clear need for media production companies and film studios to provide secure preview copies for customers and reviewers, while protecting their valuable content from pre-release leaks caused by shared access, accidental delivery to the wrong person, and system hacks.

Topics covered in the white paper

Our white paper explores the challenges associated with distributing screeners to clients, reviewers and judging panels, including:

  • The importance of protecting preview content
  • The issues with current delivery methods
  • How DVD screeners are still a major source of content leaks
  • Distributing valuable content more securely
  • How to increase sales through a better user experience

Case Study

Imagen provides secure and easy access to their catalogue and plays a vital role in marketing and distributing content from its many subsidiaries including Tiger Aspect, Initial, Zeppotron, DSP and others.

“We use Imagen for video production work and screeners, while restricting that content to only the people who need to see it. The platform’s configurable permission structures allow us to set up a range of features and controls for both internal and external users allowing them to download, create collections, clip, and share, leave comments and update online.”
