The numbers don’t lie. We love watching video. A recent survey done across 10 nations shows just how much.
In France, they’re reporting an average of 9.38 hours per week of total viewing over all video content. It’s a demand being met by companies like OCS, a group of subscription-based TV channels operated by Orange in France.
To provide their viewers with the best content, they also provide an on-demand service called OCS Go. They have exclusive contracts with Warner Bros., HBO, MGM among others. With OCS, Game of Thrones fans in France will never miss a moment with the Mother of Dragons.
An operation like this requires a lot of collaboration and speed to keep up with the steady stream of new content. That’s exactly why OCS implemented iconik to automate and modernize its collaboration workflows. OCS will use iconik to share media content with journalists and internal services within Orange. Before, this was done manually by uploading content to a system for sharing media files.
OCS will now automate much of that workflow. Because iconik integrates seamlessly with Cantemo Portal, media content and metadata are automatically pushed to iconik based on business rules. Media can then be accessed directly from iconik. The archiving workflow can also be automated with integration between iconik and OCS’ existing MatrixStore object storage from Object Matrix.
"iconik has made it so easy to share media with external users. Everyone has access to what they need and we have more time for generating new content."
Guillaume Jouhet, CEO, Orange Cinéma Séries (OCS)
Finding a solution that can hook into your current workflows, and remain flexible as your workflows change will greatly reduce the amount of work needed to implement a new solution. The ability to create custom workflows and actions will also help a new solution slip into place quickly.
In iconik, you have both of these things.
“iconik is all about enabling collaboration and that is something OCS is really embracing with this implementation. Not only can it more easily share content with all external and internal stakeholders, iconik has enabled it to automate a great deal of its workflows. All of this means that OCS can concentrate on what it does best: generating large volumes of premium content.
