Cinedigm, Exeest launch Matchpoint Debut
February 17, 2022
Cinedigm, the independent streaming content and technology company, and Exeest, a global film and television marketplace company, have announced the launch of Matchpoint Debut, a new distribution and sales platform for independent filmmakers and content creators.
Debut provides filmmakers with a path to distribute their films across the entire streaming ecosystem while providing an opportunity to monetise their work. All filmmakers, from small independents to established distributors, will have the ability to directly participate in the OTT business by gaining distribution across more than 80 US and international-based streaming platforms.
Cinedigm’s content submission and evaluation process will be powered by Exeest’s patent-pending content distribution technology while the entire asset ingestion, content preparation, content packaging and digital distribution will be fully automated by Cinedigm’s Matchpoint Dispatch.
“As the entertainment industry undergoes a transformation brought on by the adoption of streaming video as the primary format for home entertainment, we are passionate about ensuring that the voice of independent filmmakers remains strong,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s Chief Technology & Product Officer. “As it becomes increasingly difficult for independent filmmakers to reach large audiences in this rapidly changing media landscape, it is exciting to partner with an innovative partner like Exeest who shares our vision of the future where we can create a destination for independent filmmakers and establish a viable path for discovery by enabling them to bring their work into living rooms around the world.”
“We are bringing the entertainment marketplace into the digital age with the latest technology that simplifies and streamlines the buying and selling of content in an environment that showcases the content as an interactive experience, from the viewing to the sales connections,” added John Pollak, Chief Commercial Officer, Exeest.
