Endemol Shine Netherlands and FremantleMedia North America are deploying Box’s cloud sharing and collaboration platform, it was announced at the Cannes Lion festival last week. The companies have chosen Box to provide centralised and secure content management, both internally and externally.
“The media and entertainment industry is responding to huge technology shifts which are impacting the way people manage and distribute content,” said David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA. “Box helps enable secure content sharing, collaboration and mobility so companies like Endemol Shine Netherlands and FremantleMedia North America can embrace completely new ways of working.”
Endemol Shine Netherlands is part of the Endemol Shine Group, comprising a global network of 90 companies in over 30 countries. The company annually produces over 350 series across genres, including entertainment, reality TV, game shows, comedy, drama, sport and features. Endemol Shine Netherlands has turned to Box to provide collaboration capabilities to its staff.
“We work with countless broadcasters, digital platforms and licensees worldwide,” said Leon Backbier, ICT manager at Endemol Shine Netherlands. “Box provides us with a smooth, unified way of accessing content and a powerful collaboration platform for our disparate workforce. It has fundamentally changed the way we manage assets, especially when collaborating with external teams.”
FremantleMedia is one of the largest international creators and producers of entertainment brands in the world and produces more than 10,000 hours of programmes, including rolling out more than 45 formats and managing over 350 individual titles each year.
“The way people work is changing so we’re deploying cloud-based tools to meet the demands of the digital content workflow,” said Chad Hamilton, executive director, information technology at FremantleMedia North America. “Box gives us the ability to collaborate with teams around the world making us much more productive, while providing IT with the safeguards they need for managing critical information.”
