OwnZones Entertainment Technologies has announced that its cloud-based platform Connect, and its integrated features like FrameDNA have been named finalists in both the SaaS Awards, for Best Data-Driven SaaS technology and the CSI Awards for Best Use of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning in Video.
“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,'' said OwnZones CEO Dan Goman. “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.”
Earlier this year Connect received a 2020 Future Best of Show Award from the magazine Television Broadcast Europe.
Connect 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.
James Williams, head of operations for the SaaS Awards said, “Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business. This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodeling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders to arranging meetings, SaaS technologies are more important than ever.”
The CSI Awards, organized by Cable and Satellite International Magazine is in its 18th Annual year of celebrating excellence and achievement in the broadcast, video, OTT, and IoT sectors. Established in 2003 the CSI Awards are among the most prestigious and competitive technology awards in the industry, designed to recognize and reward innovation and excellence in the cable, satellite, broadcast, IPTV, telco, broadband/OTT video, mobile TV and associated sectors.
