You can easily see and manage video, metadata and other assets such as poster art; distribute content using preset business rules; and update video components including closed captioning and audio tracks.
  • Ingest and distribute at scale: The IBM Cloud Video Logistics Manager platform transforms and packages assets for every digital or traditional destination, and it provides sophisticated workflow orchestration with high visibility into assets at every stage of distribution. And IBM Cloud Video Logistics Manager also features live editing and clip-publishing tools, including C3 and D4 capture for broadcast feed whether you’re managing video on demand (VOD), live events, original content or licensed assets.
  • Make metadata work for you: Metadata is the key to unlocking your content’s potential—and revenue. IBM Cloud Video Logistics Manager has deep capabilities to ingest and normalize your metadata to any specification, whether you’re distributing content to third parties or monetizing through your own over-the-top (OTT) content services. It helps you support industry standards or your own metadata and publishing needs.
