Banijay Rights, the international distribution division of Banijay Group, has implemented BLAM to manage their content catalogue of more than 250,000 assets. The BLAM seamlessly manages both on-premise and cloud-based storage and integrates with existing systems to provide a complete media operations management capability.
Banijay Group is the world’s largest independent content creation group for television and multimedia platforms and, as the group’s international distribution division, Banijay Rights has a catalogue of more than 20,000 hours of best-selling content across all genres including titles like; “Versailles,” “Wallander,” “Survivor” and “Wife Swap.” After recently moving storage and management of their content library in-house, Banijay Rights needed to bring the archive under secure management and streamline operations with automation and task management. The Blue Lucy Asset Manager was selected after a competitive tender process and implementation was completed in late summer 2017.
The BLAM provides Banijay Rights with an end-to-end operations management solution featuring;
“One of the biggest benefits we’ve seen from this implementation has been the integration of the rights management system with media and operations management,” said Mark Glennon, consultant to Banijay Rights responsible for this project. “Banijay is an amalgamation of many different companies and being able to put all their content into one library and use EasyTrack integration to expose all this material to the sales team will make it much easier to market and sell their inventory.”
“The Banijay BLAM system demonstrates the significant operational and business benefits of integrating systems to streamline media operations management” said Blue Lucy founder, Julian Wright. “The integration with both EasyTrack and AWS S3 / Glacier provides Banijay with a hybrid cloud / ground archive of their entire content catalogue which is both low cost and secure.”
