LOS ANGELES—Entertainment studio Electus,
producers of such television shows as Style
By Jury
, Wake Up Call and House of DVF¸ has adopted WCP Media Services’ cloud-based
content management platform, WCP Web App, for the international distribution of
television content. Electus is currently using WCP Web App for the digital
delivery of television shows to broadcasters in Latin America, France,
Australia and Canada, and plans to extend the service to other outlets in coming
Web App is a PaaS (platform as a service) product that provides a fast, direct,
secure and affordable way to upload, manage, transcode and deliver content to
broadcasters and others worldwide. Electus is using the system as an all-in-one
solution for managing digital assets, including television shows, marketing
material and other content, and delivering them to international customers
according to their individual timetables and specifications.
“WCP Web App allows Electus to deliver television shows to
customers worldwide quickly, efficiently and accurately,” said WCP Media
Services Managing Director/Americas Kenneth Yas. “The system includes
sophisticated tools to manage the complexities of digital delivery, yet it is
easy to use, both for distributors and their customers.”

Electus had been evaluating digital asset management systems
for several years as the industry has been moving away from the tape-based
delivery of television shows in favor of digital, file-based modes of delivery.
“A digital asset management system has to perform exceptionally well in a
number of key areas,” explained Electus International Senior Vice President of
Worldwide Operations Brad Jorgensen. “It has to be very efficient, technically
accurate and easy to use for us to ask our clients to use it.”
Through intensive evaluation, the current version of WCP Web
App met Electus’s performance requirements and through the initial roll out to
clients, the system has functioned flawlessly. Jorgensen said the system is enabling
the faster delivery of content with fewer errors while reducing costs. “Trust
is our most important business asset,” he said. “When we deliver broadcast
media, it has to be right. If you miss an air date, it costs money. Our clients
are very pleased with their experience with WCP. There have been no problems.”
Other U.S. distributors using WCP Web App include
Sierra/Engine Television, distributors of such shows as SAF3, Crossbones and Ghostbreakers; and MonteCristo
International, distributors of long-form television content.
WCP Media Services will be demonstrating WCP Web App at NAB
2015, April in Las Vegas, Booth SU14410.
