An automated scheduling solution that helps FAST channel operators quickly program and schedule their FAST channels with a scalable, best-in-class unified solution
LOS ANGELES and SUNRISE (Fla.), September 12, 2023 – Cineverse (NASDAQ:CNVS), a streaming technology and entertainment company, has formed a strategic partnership with MEDIAGENIX, a leading content supply-chain solutions provider, to address an underserved need within the rapidly growing FAST ecosystem. Through this partnership, channel operators can more efficiently launch and operate a FAST channel quickly, easily, and affordably. Matchpoint MGX is an extension of Cineverse’s propriety streaming technology solution Matchpoint, which was built by the industry leaders as a means to stream higher volumes of content to much broader audiences at significant cost savings.
Building on an existing partnership and via a deep integration with Matchpoint’s rights management capabilities, this latest announcement significantly expands the Matchpoint platform suite by offering a tailor-made solution for FAST operators and content providers that enables end-to-end broadcast-level operational efficiency.
Channel operators can significantly scale their FAST operations, not just managing channels, but also scheduling them far into the future.
“Our partnership with MEDIAGENIX solves a growing problem within the video streaming industry that specifically affects operators of FAST channels. The costs to launch a FAST channel are too high, and the process required to maintain and schedule a channel is too complex,” said Tony Huidor, Chief Operating Officer & Chief Technology Officer for Cineverse. “We have solved this problem by enabling channel operators to efficiently program a FAST Channel using an industry-leading scheduling solution developed for the television industry at a significantly lower cost. We integrated MEDIAGENIX’s enterprise-grade channel scheduling platform with Matchpoint’s fully-automated content delivery platform so that channel operators can significantly scale their FAST operations, not just managing channels, but also scheduling them far into the future. This partnership now offers channel operators a first-of-its-kind fully integrated and all-in-one FAST channel scheduling and content delivery platform that significantly simplifies the process of managing one channel or dozens of channels.”
MEDIAGENIX CEO Fabrice Maquignon is a believer in optimizing supply chains and is bullish on how Matchpoint MGX can serve the FAST market. “Cineverse is a leader in FAST, and we’re excited to partner with them,” said Fabrice. “Their Matchpoint solution, together with MEDIAGENIX Scheduling, offers the solution the FAST market needs: an end-to-end platform to launch, manage, and schedule FAST channels quickly and affordably in a few clicks.”
