Our Content Intelligence System

Media Xperience Studio Service

Your single source of content intelligence.

Media production and distribution workflows have traditionally developed in silos.

Your online viewers are watching on many screens, from their mobiles to their smart TVs, so an antiquated TV guide won’t work.

Your apps need to enable your audience to quickly find the content they want to immerse themselves in and keep them coming back.

The integrated monetization engine opens up the opportunity for partner advertising revenues too.

A proven way to keep your viewers engaged is to continually introduce them to new, relevant content that matches their viewing habits. In a world where viewers are overwhelmed by choices, a service that quickly surfaces new content is sure to keep them engaged for longer and your revenue growing.

Unlike legacy systems that lock your valuable information in silos, MX:Personalization is built on a single, centralized repository of your content and metadata to ensure essential downstream systems facilitate content discovery and ad placement.

MX: Programming

Bridge the worlds of traditional and online television

Traditional pay-TV now has to co-exist with online streaming channels. Yet, viewers’ desire for a lean-back experience, where they turn on their TV and “tune out”, applies to both worlds. Yesterday’s TV program guide and marathon viewing equates to today’s binge-watching sessions.

Extending the world of traditional television to your online streaming apps and websites requires you to translate your program schedule, ad breaks and content lineup from your broadcast systems to your OTT or TV Everywhere apps. MX:Programming gives you the flexibility to bring broadcast systems online without expensive duplication of systems, and also leverage the promise of personalization and targeting. MX:Programming also keeps your extensive business agreements, content rights and policies intact so they can still be enforced in the online world through well-planned content scheduling and availability windowing.
