Visual Data Media Services announced today that it has entered into an exclusive three-year contract with Red Arrow Studios International, a leading global distributor of entertainment content, to provide storage, media asset management and digital supply chain services.
The contract, secured following an extensive tender process, will enable Red Arrow Studios International to access Visual Data’s expertise in content preparation for international sales and master quality control, as well as the company’s preferred vendor status with leading platforms including Amazon, Netflix and iTunes.
With a catalogue of over 1000 hours of premium content, Red Arrow required a reliable, secure and cost-effective platform from which to manage, store and distribute content. Red Arrow has chosen Visual Data’s complete content management and digital supply chain services, comprising the VIDA digital media asset management and archive storage platform.
VIDA is designed specifically for international film and TV distribution; content preparation for international sales; master quality control; and high speed, secure content delivery to broadcasters and platforms and is managed by a highly experienced dedicated account team.
“We were looking for a single expert vendor to provide key material services and were impressed by Visual Data’s offering, as TV distribution is the core of their business,” said Jonas Anschütz, VP Strategy and Operations, Red Arrow Studios International. “By working with VIDA we will further streamline our content management and international delivery process, both for us and the production companies and international broadcasters and platforms that we work with.”
