Filmbankmedia, an international non-theatrical distributor for film and TV, has selected Seachange International’s Rave platform to launch streaming services for schools, hotels and hospitals across 120 territories internationally.
Leveraging Seachange for fully managed, cloud hosted services, Filmbankmedia’s streaming offering will deliver premium Film and TV from leading Hollywood, Bollywood and independent studios for on-demand enjoyment on IP connected devices.
Rave enables Filmbankmedia to run a SaaS (Software as a Service) model business, which means that its business-to-business customers can rapidly turn on streaming services without any infrastructure to own or manage.
“This is a major step as we can now directly offer our customers a streaming service via the SeaChange Rave platform,” said Filmbankmedia sales director Simon Culm.
“The ability to provide our customers with a scalable, managed end-to-end streaming service without any technology or infrastructure investment gives us much greater flexibility over the distribution of our content, cost effectively with a SaaS model approach.”
Ivonne Prugnaud, Seachange VP of OTT Sales EMEA, added, “We are delighted to be a major partner for Filmbankmedia who represents many of the leading Hollywood and independent studios non-theatrically. This is a fantastic showcase for the capabilities of Rave and its ability to serve diverse vertical market segments for online distribution.”
