Discop Tube To Go Live... For Free!

Creators of the highly successful content markets Discop Africa, Discop East and the recently launched Discop Istanbul have announced its latest innovation, Discop Tube – a free online video library open to content buyers representing TV stations and other distribution platforms across Central, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
To be launched at this year’s Discop East, which takes place in Budapest from the 23rd to the 25th June, the online video library will showcase content offered at the various Discop markets and will be accessible all year round via their website.
During the markets themselves, buyers will be able to access the platform in a restricted lounge open at all times during the course of the three day market.
The streaming and uploading services will be powered by Mediapeers, one of the world’s leading developers of secured online, business-to-business viewing environments.
While face-to-face meetings are central to the development of television content business in the 101 countries covered by Discop events, the market organisers are also responding to economical and technological factors encouraging online viewing practices.
Patrick Jucaud, Discop’s General Manager commented: "Fueled by new territorial licensing opportunities combined with a worldwide, ongoing digital switchover revolution for content suppliers, the number of potential 'prospects' has grown exponentially in the last three years, and with it, the costs to properly service every single one of them."
"Using premium postal services to rush physical DVDs around the world, after or before a sales-centric market no longer makes sense," he continued, "Helping buyers and sellers to travel light is a major priority for us, as is the spontaneous networking that can be derived from online environments. We are sure that Discop Tube will be a huge benefit to our attendees, before, during and after each of our markets."
