Korea Content Platform Chooses Ooyala Flex Media Platform to Power Their Media Operations

Ooyala, a leading provider of software and services that simplify the complexity of producing, streaming and monetizing video, announced that Korea Content Platform (KCP), an American entertainment company offering K-Drama content, is utilizing the Ooyala Flex Media Platform as the unified platform to manage content and metadata from their partners, and automate the processing and publishing of content according to their business rules. This allows KCP to have a single source of truth for their media operations, eliminate errors from manual processes, and increase the overall efficiency of their business.

Korea Content Platform, a joint-venture between three major Korean broadcasters, KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), MBC (Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation) and SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System), offers exciting K-Drama KOCOWA (Korean Content Wave) content, to fans around the world. After launching their SVOD (Subscription-Video-On-Demand) service in 2017, they quickly realized that they had complex business rules requiring manual processes in their operations, and that resulted in errors and missing of deadlines to distribute content. With a high volume of metadata and assets coming from different partners, it was difficult to get visibility into their content workflow. KCP needed a solution to orchestrate their workflows better, automate processes and have a single source of truth for their operations.

With the Ooyala Flex Media Platform deployed on cloud, KCP can now collect assets, information and different types of metadata from their partners, and automate workflows to process and manage them for publishing. Business rules behind the processes can also be configured and changed easily within the platform. With robust reporting features available on the Ooyala Flex Media Platform, KCP staff can monitor their media operations effectively and generate reports on how their content business is performing.

“The Over-The-Top media business is competitive and complex, and we need to constantly offer new and exciting KOCOWA content for our viewers and PIP (Platform In Platform) partners. KOCOWA PIP is one of the B2B content distribution models from KCP. OTT video platform operators can easily integrate their clients to KCP’s PIP video platform to acquire K-Drama, K-Pop and Variety shows. With a large volume of content to manage and distribute, our operations team has to be super efficient. The Ooyala Flex Media Platform, with its strong metadata and workflow orchestration capabilities, allows us to automate our media operations and get content ready in a timely manner,” said Mr. Park KunHee, CEO of KCP.

"KCP is a modern entertainment company facing workflow challenges as they deal with more and more content, formats and devices,” said Steve Davis, Ooyala’s VP and GM of Asia Pacific and Japan. “We’re excited to be powering their media operations and supporting them to be successful in their business.”

The new Flex Media Platform, which streamlines video workflows and asset management, provides an architecturally open solution capable of integrating with other systems, tools and data across the company’s operation.

“One of our key requirements is the support for the media workflows for B2B and the workflows for B2C together with multiple language environments,” Park added. “The Ooyala Flex Media Platform has solid and open APIs that allow us to build our own user interface and develop the workflow integrations against KCP’s complicated business scenarios to other systems.”

Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
