At this month’s American Film Market in Santa Monica, WCPMedia Services will demonstrate its cloud-based media-management platform, WCPWeb App. Used by producers, distributors, film festivals and others worldwide. The market runs through November 9.
“We provide producers and distributors with the tools they need to take control of their content,” said WCPMedia Services Kenneth Yas. “Our platform makes it very easy to deliver content to buyers and broadcasters worldwide in the format that they require. It’s also a powerful sales platform that can be used to develop new markets. It represents a quantum leap forward over physical distribution or other means of digital delivery that are cumbersome and slow.”
Entertainment studio Electus is using WCPWeb App to distribute content to broadcasters around the globe. The company produces such shows as Style by Jury, Wake Up Call and House of DVF.
Producers of the indie feature Radio Free Albemuth, recently used WCP to promote the film and securely deliver it to Kickstarter backers. The platform was also used during the production of The Young Pope, a joint Sky, HBO and Canal Plus production, to share editorial and review media.
At AFM, WCPMedia Services will demonstrate a number of new and enhanced features of the platform. One new feature allows for the use of virtual screening rooms for content promotion. “Users can set up multiple screening rooms in order to target individual buyers with catalogs and promotional media tailored to their genre or programming preferences to monitor access and gauge interest,” Yas said. The company will also showcase the platform’s choices for high-speed file transfers, including Aspera and Signiant.
WCPWeb App has not previously been shown at AFM. “We’re excited to introduce our platform to producers, distributors and buyers at this global film event,” said Yas.
