Delivering to VOD

Supplying the VOD Revolution

Earlier this year, the DPP released an in-depth analysis of the workflows and formats involved in delivering content to VOD platforms.

With a lack of commonality between organizations, it unearthed a picture of chaos, complexity, and inefficiency. However, a clear path to a more efficient future also emerged.

Supplying the VOD Revolution

An extensive piece of research into the global supply of content to VOD platforms, Supplying the VOD Revolution defines a reference workflow for the supply of content from distributors and aggregators to platforms. It exposes the pain points felt by implementers of these workflows, and explores the web of standards and formats in use today. The report also asks: What practical steps can be taken to reduce complexity and enhance efficiency in this vital artery of our industry?

Delivery to VOD

Taking what we learned from this research, we launched a collaborative technical project aiming to drive a more common approach to the formats and workflows used in delivering content to VOD platforms.

Two project groups have been created, each focusing on a business problem identified during the research:

Metadata & Avails

A multitude of complex and custom metadata formats are currently in use for delivering VOD content. We will explore the common options available, and understand where gaps exist. And we'll contribute towards the ongoing development of key specifications, such as the MovieLabs Digital Distribution Framework.

Avails is the term used to describe the commercial availability of a piece of content. If avails are expressed in a standard format, processes can be automated and supply chain efficiency can be increased. However, the research indicated this is not the norm, and that management of avails is a problem area for many companies.

We will work with DPP members to encourage a move from custom spreadsheets to common formats, such as EMA Avails.

Onboarding

Onboarding is a multi-step process requiring the distributor to build multiple profiles, create & validate test files, and configure automated systems. These steps are not always defined clearly defined, leading to mis-communication and delays.

We will work with our member companies to create a DPP Guidance Document outlining best practices for the onboarding processes.
