BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies, the video supply chain built in the cloud, has partnered with Cinnafilm to enable content studios and post-production houses to create the richest possible versions of shows in a consolidated Interoperable Media Format (IMF). Combining Cinnafilm's Tachyon and Dark Energy tools with OWNZONES recently released AI-driven FrameDNA technology will allow users to optimize frames and file versions in the cloud without the time and resource constraints of traditional legacy solutions.
"We're thrilled to partner with Cinnafilm, the leader in high-quality image processing, and bring the company's expertise to our customers," said Dan Goman, CEO of OWNZONES. "Bringing our cloud-based tool to bear with Tachyon and Dark Energy empowers our customers with the most robust editing and versioning solution on the market."
OWNZONE's FrameDNA analyzes content and identifies structural similarities to more easily sort, store, and augment multiple versions of content. By eliminating redundancy and freeing up storage space, producers can more easily distribute content across geographies and markets.
Cinnafilm's Tachyon and Dark Energy tools provide the highest quality format and standards conversions, allowing users to automatically convert and transcode file formats in near real-time. By replacing dedicated hardware converters with a cloud-based solution, users can conduct standards conversions, frame rate conversions, telecine and pulldown removal and frame rate normalization at a fraction of the time and cost. Combined with OWNZONE's FrameDNA, users will be able to transform their content into any format and easily deliver it to multiple endpoints.
"We're driving innovation in image processing workflows as the world of content moves to a more dedicated over-the-top (OTT) and cloud-based model. Partnering with OWNZONES gives companies a streamlined solution for their transcoding and conversion needs," said Cinnafilm CEO Lance Maurer.
OWNZONES began in 2010 as a content company focused on innovating the industry conventions of bundled linear content (much like today's Amazon channels). After creating, launching, and operating over 400 digital channels, managing over 5 million assets, and distributing to over 25 countries, OWNZONES realized the key to success was in the technologies it built and now offer as a solution. These products have made OWNZONES a leader in cloud-based video supply chain solutions. OWNZONES' transformative platform is built by a team of experts with decades of combined experience at companies such as Amazon, HBO, Netflix, and Microsoft. More at www.ownzones.com.
