French broadcaster TF1 has implemented SintecMedia’s OnRights software solution designed to help broadcasters earn higher revenue from content and licensing inventories across their linear, non-linear and digital platforms. TF1 turned to SintecMedia to manage and track content rights and inventory across its entire multi-platform business and diverse catalogue of acquired, commissioned and distributed content.
TF1’s Michel Cordival, chief information officer, reported, “TF1 continues to invest in technology solutions that make it easier and more affordable to deliver world class programming. With OnRights, we are able to make better use of and ultimately earn more from our content by investing in a system that easily manages rights. We are changing the way that we run our business and we are pleased to invest in technologies that move our industry forward.”
Dan Yuval, VP product management at Sintecmedia, added: “TF1 is one of Europe’s most prominent media brands. By implementing OnRights, the company has demonstrated its ability to anticipate one of the key demands of the digital world – a flexible approach to instantly visualise and analyse the tremendously complex set of content rights and their utilisation. TF1 doesn’t have to worry about leaving money on the table as far as their content is concerned. They always have a complete understanding of their inventory and how best to exploit it.”
OnRights is an enterprise solution designed to manage content rights and royalties across multiple platforms, territories, languages and formats. The system captures all aspects of inbound (rights in) and outbound (rights out) content licensing including legal, programming, scheduling and financial terms. OnRights’ advanced architecture enables real-time access into inventory availability, identifying opportunities to monetise unused content internally and to grow revenue by licensing content externally. OnRights also streamlines contract maintenance, tracks deliverables and manages payment, improving team efficiency and preventing overpayments.
