A scalable workflow management system that automates the creation, management, and distribution of media assets to end-user platforms. The WFS enables providers to maximize the value of their content and networks through on-demand offerings.
Taking advantage of the revenue opportunities available via multi-platform content delivery requires and efficient and effective means of surmounting the challenges associated with managing and supporting a multiscreen, multi-format content delivery strategy.
