ZOO Digital Launches Next Generation Compliance Editing Service
At IBC 2016 next month in Amsterdam, ZOO Digital will unveil its innovative compliance editing service, a highly efficient way to create versions of TV and movie content that comply with the cultural requirements of diverse territories.
When launching in a new international market, ZOO’s compliance editing service ensures that TV and movie content for local broadcast and video-on-demand (VOD) delivery meets the legal, cultural and editorial requirements of a specific territory. For example, this may be to cut scenes of sex, nudity and violence or add advisory messages for specific audiences. ZOO’s innovative cloud-based approach achieves this quickly and cost-effectively, delivering fully localized compliance versions and metadata in any language.
Powered by revolutionary ZOOcloud, global editorial teams can collaborate easily with in-territory compliance experts via a centralized online dashboard. This also offers content owners full project visibility and the flexibility to log on any time, anywhere to review material and monitor progress in real time using a shared space online. ZOO’s ultra-secure asset management service means that content teams can store all assets securely and order compliance versions for different languages, territories and formats in a few clicks.
Visitors to ZOO’s stand at IBC Show 2016 in RAI Amsterdam 9 to 13 September can see live demos of the revolutionary technology in action. Compliance editing is just one of a complete range of connected global content services, which also includes digital distribution, subtitling and captioning, metadata creation and localization, dubbing, artwork localization, workflow, asset management and eScreeners.
ZOO President Gordon Doran commented:
“As we expand in the Middle East, South Asia and Asia Pacific, our compliance editing service opens up a world of market opportunities. For content owners it means they can reach new audiences in specific territories by preparing compliant content for digital distribution. Similarly for in-territory broadcasters it enables them to offer their audiences a far wider range of sought after premium TV and movie content.
“This reinforces our position as one of the few providers now comprehensively equipped to offer a complete, end-to-end service for every element of digital distribution and localization.”
ZOO Digital, based in Los Angeles, London and Sheffield, provides media production, localization and digital distribution services to the world’s leading content creators and distributors, including major Hollywood studios, BBC Worldwide and iTunes.
