With media services, we prepare your content for delivery.
ODMedia’s workflow engine can ingest files from any source, ranging from physical media such as tapes and DVD/Blu-ray discs to digital files. Ingesting your physical assets at ODMedia means you are ready to deliver your content to any platform, now and in the future.
Optionally, we can enrich your content during the ingest process: either by sourcing existing data or by creating subtitles, trailers and any form of metadata and artwork.
We currently localise in all main languages. We can also take care of your content transformation services including standard conversion, upscaling and restoration.
Of course, you want your content to be viewed in the best possible quality. Therefore, all ingested files are securely checked by our Quality control team with the help of Baton, our state-of-the-art software based quality control system.
Your own VOD platform is within reach through our, in-house developed, back-end technology. The ODMedia VOD platform has been developed in the past few years into becoming a standard in the industry. Our platform is flexible, modular and is constantly updated with the latest technology. This way our platform can meet your needs, now and in the future.
