I don't have all assets, can ODMedia assist me?

Of course! ODMedia can for example create trailers, subtitles in any language and resize and create artwork for all platforms. Contact us for more information.

How long does it take before my assets are delivered to OTT platforms such as iTunes and Netflix?

We recommend to deliver all assets to us at least 3 months before the EST/VOD release date. It will take us up to 1 month to process all materials for delivery. Processing time can increase if we find any errors that can’t be fixed and need to request new materials. It can take the platforms up to 1 month to QC and process all materials. For iTunes, there is an option to place your title as a preorder 1 month before the actual release date. In case of a preorder, only the trailer, artwork and metadata need to be delivered upfront.

I own the worldwide rights and want my content to be available on iTunes worldwide. Which materials are required?

Next to the feature and trailer we need subtitles, localized artwork and a translated synopsis for each language. With only a English language version you can for example deliver to +/- 50 iTunes stores. Some countries have special requirements, such as Japan which we need a feature and trailer with burnt-in subtitles for and the United States which require Closed Captions. Of course, we can assist you with the creation of all different language versions. Contact us for all specific requirements per territory.

We use Azure Cloud Storage for most of our media archiving.

This is additional to the existing portfolio of more than two-dozen industry standards and certifications, including the Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA) and Content Protection and Security (CPS) Standard. Security of your files is our number one priority. With Microsoft Azure Cloud Storage, your media will be secured from the moment it leaves your computer through storage, processing and delivery. Azure infrastructure is resilient to online attacks and keeps your media secure through encrypted communications and threat management. ODMedia has developed client software so you always have secure access to your assets.
