Pilat Media Enhances IBMS Rights
Pilat Media introduced the latest release of IBMS Rights,
the company’s technology for centralized rights management across “all content distribution
platforms,” it said. A standalone version of Pilat Media’s Integrated Broadcast
Management System, IBMS Rights offers features for contract management, program
finance, and distribution licensing of linear as well as on-demand multiplatform
content. The new release offers enhancements for distribution licenses, including
the identification of revenue shares and management of associated payments back
to original content providers.
IBMS Rights now also supports allocation of costs across any number
of business units at the individual license window level. Operators can define standard
cost allocation rules via the easily managed templates, and then override those
allocations at the individual license window level when required. It enables centralized
rights management for any broadcast content across multiple platforms and third-party
systems. Broadcasters can centrally log and manage exploitation and distribution
rights for all acquired or produced content, both long and short form, across both
linear conventional TV and nonlinear multiplatform and multiscreen services.
Integration of IBMS Rights with a broadcaster’s other business
management modules is facilitated by the system’s built-in workflow orchestration
capabilities. For example, any deal, along with its defined rights, is entered only
once and then exploited by all linear and on-demand scheduling activities, with
distribution licenses feeding off that same set of deal rights. This also facilitates
content planning activities such as revenue projections and long-term planning.
