EPIX partners with Signiant to bring HD content workflow to marketplace
Signiant has partnered with EPIX to deliver and manage content for the multiplatform premium entertainment channel.
EPIX, a joint venture between Viacom, its Paramount Pictures unit, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Lionsgate, delivers its extensive library of HD movies, concerts and original content to subscribers across its premium cable channel, video-on-demand and online service across the United States.
Signiant software will be used to create workflows, automations and notifications to power this multiplatform supply chain, moving EPIX toward lights-out, demand-driven and database-managed procurement workflows. The multiplatform approach EPIX is developing necessitates the free flow of large file sizes between in-house studios, cable and online distribution channels and multiscreen end users.
