OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies has announced the success of its proprietary technology platform, OWNZONES Connect in multiple global award programs.
This month, Connect, and its integrated features like FrameDNA™, have been named finalists in both the SaaS Awards, for Best Data-Driven SaaS solution, and the CSI Awards for Best Use of AI or Machine Learning in Video. In May of this year, Connect was also awarded a 2020 Future Best of Show Award, presented by TVB Europe.
“The programs which have recognized Connect are unique and diverse, and we are thrilled to receive the honor of being shortlisted for two further awards after winning earlier this year,” stated Dan Goman, CEO of OWNZONES. “Connect truly redefines the media supply chain through cloud workflows and AI toolkits. Receiving this notoriety validates the growing importance of Cloud, SaaS, and AI products and workflows, which in the world of today are needed now more than ever,” continued Goman.
OWNZONES Connect is the next-gen content servicing and supply chain platform. The cloud-native platform offers content owners and providers an efficient, flexible, and scalable alternative to on-premise systems. Connect can be implemented as SaaS or PaaS. Studios and post houses can utilize Connect’s modular framework to select only the components of the platform they need. Connect ties together fragmented post production workflows by seamlessly integrating with existing partners and systems via a fully accessible API. With Connect, content companies can own the entire process, from transcoding to QC to delivery, completely cloud-based for flexible, secure usage regardless of location.
In addition to serving as an orchestration layer that helps streamline production workflows in the cloud, Connect is equipped with several microservices that further automate, consolidate, and organize media. Users can take advantage of tools like FrameDNA, which consolidates content versions in the cloud; Deep Analysis, which analyzes media and identifies various layout/formatting elements; and the Metadata Service, which dynamically maps asset metadata onto the requirements for endless different platform endpoints.
