Banijay Rights Selects Blue Lucy Solution

News Image
Blue Lucy has revealed that its Blue Lucy Asset Manager (BLAM) has been chosen by Banijay rights to manage their content catalogue of over 250,000 titles.

Banijay Rights, the international distribution division of Banijay Group, is an independent content creation group for television and multimedia platforms and has a catalogue of more than 20,000 hours of content across all genres. After recently moving storage and management of their content library in-house, Banijay Rights needed to bring the archive under secure management and streamline operations with automation and task management. The Blue Lucy Asset Manager was selected after a competitive tender process and implementation was completed in late summer 2017.

The BLAM manages both on-premise and cloud-based storage and integrates with existing systems to provide a complete media operations management capability. It provides Banijay Rights with an end-to-end operations management solution featuring:

• Complete integration with Banijay's rights management system, EasyTrack. New content is automatically scanned and imported to the BLAM, triggering automated processes and user task management workflows that ensure that the media rights and media management systems are synchronised at all times.

• Quality Assurance automation through the BLAM connector for Telestream VidCheck. A suite of QC tests is carried out on all material ingested into the system with any errors or warnings highlighted for operators to address.

• Access to the archive from Adobe Premiere Pro. Editors can quickly find and "round trip" material from the BLAM without leaving the Adobe editing tools.

• On-premise and cloud-based storage management. The BLAM manages all operations for the on-prem disk-based storage as well as the movement of assets to, and from, AWS S3 which is used to store 'safety' copies of all assets.

• Easy access to all workflows and material through a simple browser-based interface.

Mark Glennon, consultant to Banijay Rights responsible for this project, said: "One of the biggest benefits we've seen from this implementation has been the integration of the rights management system with media and operations management. Banijay is an amalgamation of many different companies and being able to put all their content into one library and use EasyTrack integration to expose all this material to the sales team will make it much easier to market and sell their inventory."

"The Banijay BLAM system demonstrates the significant operational and business benefits of integrating systems to streamline media operations management," added Julian Wright, Founder, Blue Lucy. "The integration with both EasyTrack and AWS S3/Glacier provides Banijay with a hybrid cloud/ground archive of their entire content catalogue which is both low cost and secure."
