Established in the early 70s in Ontario, Canada, Entertainment One Ltd. (LSE:ETO) focused on retail sales of recorded music, but found new markets in entertainment content expanding into video and distribution. eOne as it has become know is now a global independent studio specialising in the development, acquisition, production, financing, distribution and sales of entertainment content. The Company’s rights library has expanded across all media formats and includes more than 80,000 hours of film and television content and approximately 40,000 music tracks.
With a growing need to bring the content to the market Entertainment One looked for a single technology platform from which it could securely deliver EPK and publicity materials to a wide range of external platforms, including TV broadcasters, VOD platforms, as well as online and print based publications.
Media Room provided Entertainment One with a single aggregation point for content upload all of their EPK and publicity materials. The configuration of Media Room offered eOne a workflow preset for their distribution lists enabling delivery of master files as well as coding internet friendly low res files through media room, including capture and delivery of still images and audio only files.
