SINGAPORE – Ooyala, a leading provider of software and services that simplify the complexity of producing, streaming and monetizing video, announced that Korea Content Platform, an American entertainment company offering K-Drama content, is utilizing the Ooyala Flex Media Platform as the unified platform to manage content and metadata from their partners, and automate the processing and publishing of content according to their business rules. This allows KCP to have a single source of truth for their media operations, eliminate errors from manual processes, and increase the overall efficiency of their business.
Korea Content Platform (KCP), a joint-venture between three major Korean broadcasters, Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) , Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), offers exciting K-Drama KOCOWA (Korean Content Wave) content, to fans around the world. After launching their SVOD (Subscription-Video-On-Demand) service in 2017, they quickly realized that they had complex business rules requiring manual processes in their operations, and that resulted in errors and missing of deadlines to distribute content.
With a high volume of metadata and assets coming from different partners, it was difficult to get visibility into their content workflow. KCP needed a solution to orchestrate their workflows better, automate processes and have a single source of truth for their operations.
With the Ooyala Flex Media Platform deployed on cloud, KCP can now collect assets, information and different types of metadata from their partners, and automate workflows to process and manage them for publishing. Business rules behind the processes can also be configured and changed easily within the platform. With robust reporting features available on the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, KCP staff can monitor their media operations effectively and generate reports on how their content business is performing.
The new Flex Media Platform, which streamlines video workflows and asset management, provides an architecturally open solution capable of integrating with other systems, tools and data across the company’s operation.
