Visual Data teams up with Telestream to take the pain out of DPP program delivery
The big DPP challenge – the idea for re:io
In December 2013, Matt Goble and Symon Roue of Visual Data saw a big opportunity. The impending DPP delivery standard presented an opportunity to build a service that would make it simpler for production companies to supply their content to UK broadcasters with the confidence that it would comply with the precise and exacting requirements of the DPP standard. Visual Data started work on re:io in February 2014 and launched the service on October 1st 2014, in time to support the DPP’s “File Based Delivery Day.” The user interface of re:io is built to appear like many online retail sites. It is described as a “vending machine” for video delivery services.
Visual Data provides digital media supply chain services to some of the world’s largest entertainment brands. Its infrastructure is custom-built to repurpose video content and distribute it to any platform or broadcaster in any territory. The company’s suite of services includes translating metadata, captioning and digital delivery. Visual Data are approved to deliver content to the world’s leading platforms including Netflix and iTunes.
How re:io works
Any customer can establish an online account, and can pay for services by credit card or on account. The user interface (UI) is extremely clear and simple, showing a list of services available with costs applicable to each one. Services currently include format conversion, transcoding, QC, delivery and back-up storage.
