Content Providers

As a content provider, agent, aggregator, director, creator, producer or rights holder of video content and associated information you have probably experienced that the process of transferring this to distributors is often a tedious and unstandardized process. There are several challenges related to transferring content:

  • Communicating with the distributors.
  • Setting up file transfer solutions.
  • Discussing video formats, video qualities, metadata formats and so on.
  • Lack of information on how the assets are performing.
  • Lack of information on if updates to metadata are imported by the distributor.
  • Are the terms of the licensing agreements followed?
  • Lack of automated ways of removing access to an asset for some or all distributors.

SYNQ aims to solve these challenges by offering SYNQ Media – A fully automated asset distribution service, letting you stay in control of your content.

  • We import your entire library including videos, metadata and subtitles and structure them into a collection of neatly packed video objects.
  • We handle new assets or updates you make on your end.
  • SYNQ Media quality assures your metadata based on rules defined by you. Never distribute assets with missing or bad metadata again.
  • Give access to your entire library for your partners and customers with just a few clicks. Use our collections feature to only give access to parts of your library.
  • Your partners can easily integrate with the developer-friendly SYNQ API to access all content and information.
  • The SYNQ Media dashboard gives you an overview on:
    1. Assets needing attention due to missing or erroneous metadata.

Content Distributors

Configuring and maintaining all the integrations needed to import assets from all your content providers is expensive and time-consuming. There are several challenges related to integrating and importing content:

  • A lot of time is spent on communicating with the content providers.
  • Getting access to their method of file transfer or configure own method.
  • Agree on formats, video qualities and so on.
  • Parse, normalize and import metadata in a range of formats.
  • Configure new transcoding profiles and inputs.
  • Configure support for updates to existing assets.
  • Configure content delivery and DRM.
  • Maintenace

Today, resources are spent on activities that don’t separate you from the competition, the backend, imports and processing, instead of focusing on delivering the best user experience to your audience with great front-ends. SYNQ provides a simpler, automated and affordable solution that lets you spend your time on value-adding activities.
