ContentBridge signs Studio 100 to provide global digital solution

October 22, 2014

ContentBridge Systems is proud to announce a collaboration with Studio 100 in Europe. This collaboration enables Studio 100 to connect its extensive content library with consumers and business partners worldwide. ContentBridge recently joined “Breaking Bad,” Amazon, and The Walt Disney Company as recipients of the prestigious ‘Digi Award’ given by the Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) annually. ContentBridge earned the Industry Leadership Digital Award for being the first digital supply chain management software to support EMA, SMPTE IMP, Cable Labs, and UltraViolet standards.

ContentBridge provides technologies and services that help major studios, aggregators, independent distributors, and retailers organize, transform, package, and deliver their content efficiently. Under its agreement with Studio 100, ContentBridge’s office in Brussels will oversee the effort.

“We are fortunate to have a fantastic content partner like Studio 100 in the ContentBridge fold,” says Reinart. “The relationship with Studio 100 demonstrates our ability to deliver a supply chain solution that stretches from the digital library all the way to the consumer, as well as major retailers. This relationship also establishes ContentBridge in the European market for premium content distribution. In many ways, Studio 100 has been the perfect client. They test us continually, which makes our solution stronger and better adapted to international needs with each passing day.”

ContentBridge is providing Studio 100 with an entire solution for managing and distributing its content globally. The work includes Studio 100 features, TV episodes, shorts, music videos, games, karaoke tracks and e-books. ContentBridge, together with Platform Purple (the Los Angeles based content app developers) will also be tapped as the asset system of record for Studio 100’s soon-to-launch Wanagogo experience, which will allow kids everywhere to play games, chat, watch movies, read stories and
sing along with their friends.

Manfred Van Ursel, ContentBridge Chief Engineer who also heads up CB’s Belgium office, “Studio100 is a fast growing major European studio, and they immediately understood how ContentBridge can help overcome today’s challenges. They have signed up for our entire ecosystem: SAAS services, Archival, On premise installation (CB Caching server) and Professional Services (Media workflow consulting, custom integrations with legacy systems etc.). This confirms my belief that ContentBridge solutions have a global appeal and integrate just as easily with studio workflows in Europe as it does in the US. We’ve already made our first deliveries for Studio100, we’re quickly adding more Europe-oriented partners such as Ziggo to our wide selection of global parters and content destinations.”
