OWNZONES releases new features in Connect

Bubble PR

The flagship product has several upgraded features to automate and streamline workflows

OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies, the leading cloud-based video supply chain company, has announced today the release of three new features in its OWNZONES Connect™ platform to support customers and optimise user experience.

The new features, which include: Deep Analysis, Task Management, and Search Service, help Connect users efficiently organize, manage, and deliver content as well as collaborate better via the cloud while working remotely.

“The launch of these new features is very timely as we’re able to help content owners work more productively, save time, and reduce costs while working remotely in the cloud,” said Dan Goman, CEO, OWNZONES. “We’re always focused on innovating new product features to help streamline workflows and push the boundaries of what can be done through remote collaboration.”

OWNZONES developed Deep Analysis, an AI-driven tool within Connect, to save content companies time and money. Deep Analysis automates compliance editing, localization editing, and QC procedures, which traditionally take significant time because operators need to watch the full content length in order to identify scenes or clips that need to be adjusted. Deep Analysis scans content so operators can better understand its layout and formatting, automatically locating scene changes, color bars, blacks, texted scenes, and essences without users having to watch the files back in real-time. This information is presented in an easy-to-understand graphic interface, and operators can save scanned content to reuse in future projects.

Connect’s new Task Management service allows organization admins to have granular control over user roles and permissions as well as task trafficking. Now, organizations can assign specific tasks to the relevant users, whether those are internal stakeholders or external vendors, without granting them full access to the entire platform or organization’s assets. Requesting and completing tasks is now baked into the system, and personalized dashboards help individual users track what tasks have been completed and what’s left to do. Users don’t have to leave Connect to track and complete tasks—it all resides on the same platform in the cloud.

Across the entire OWNZONES platform, for both Connect and Discover products, users can now benefit from the Search Service, a global text-based search functionality. Connect users will now enjoy a highly elastic search experience; users can search for keywords in titles, metadata fields, media items, virtual folders, packages, jobs, and platforms, as well as filter search results with different categories. Locating and organizing media in the cloud is now significantly easier with this feature update.

For more information on the features, visit the Release Notes section on the OWNZONES Support page. If you’d like to learn more about how any of these features can help streamline your media workflows, reach out to sales@ownzones.com.

  • MPTS is an important date in the calendar for us, this is THE only broadcast show in the UK that supports pro audio. It’s great to be back amongst our industry peers and we look forward to meeting customers old and new.

  • The Media Production and Technology Show is a great event for connecting with the local media and entertainment community - from broadcast execs to heads of production and post facilities, right through to the hands-on crew and operators that rely on our media services and technology solutions. As longtime supporters of MPTS and regular exhibitors at the show, we've seen the event grow bigger and stronger each year.

  • When it comes to seeing the latest technology and connecting with customers, MPTS is the most important UK trade event that HHB Communication takes part in. We are consistently blown away by the year-over-year growth of the event and the ability of the MBI to keep the show fresh and innovative

  • It's lovely to see everyone back in the same place after such a long absence. And there’s a real buzz to the event today, there’s a lot of people here, there’s really nice energy. It’s been a really difficult 2 years for a lot of us, out of adversity comes innovation.

  • We get to showcase, network, collaborate, learn and experience so many aspects of this profession. We met some game-changing clients and contacts who have added significant long term value to our external operation. With the Technology sector integrated this year, we're excited to understand how that could broaden our reach even further...

  • For the industry, shows like this are so important because everyone is working on their own thing and working incredibly hard, sometimes you have to step back and take a look at what other people are doing, what the competition are doing and bounce off one and other. So to have a situation where you can meet other industry professionals and discuss some of the challenges that you’ve faced, I think it can only be a good thing.

Following product developments that have enabled our cameras to be hugely impactful in different AV industries such as live broadcast/streaming, and LED wall virtual production, the show helped us connect with a new set of customers. We made a lot of new contacts and will certainly be back in 2023
