The Shed Media Group has announced an exclusive clip sales representation agreement with Screenocean the newly established business to business clip management and distribution service.
Screenocean is backed by Cambridge Imaging Systems – an innovator in the Digital Asset Management field – and provides content producers with access to thousands of hours of premium media clips.
Charlotte Street, Head of Commercial Affairs at Shed Media explained “after a great deal of in-depth research we decided that Screenocean was the best platform for the exploitation of our rich archive of clip content. The technology that drives the search facility has been developed so that researchers can search for clips within a full programme, linked to descriptive data, maximising our secondary rights potential and making the long tail truly open and accessible.”
Tony Blake Chairman of Screenocean said “this innovative partnership with Shed brings high value and unique content to the Screenocean offer – creating a means of access in one place for producers sourcing Shed produced content from across a range of tv channels. Shed content will be incorporated into our clip sales platform at www.screenocean.com.
The deal opens up a vast range of premium content derived from prolific shows produced by companies across the Shed Media Group for a range of UK and international broadcasters and channels, including the BBC; Channel 4; ITV; and Discovery; National Geographic; and ABC in the US”
Programming in the deal comes from Wall to Wall, Ricochet, Twenty Twenty and Shed Productions across Drama, Factual Entertainment, Reality TV, Comedy and Entertainment and Documentary & Current Affairs.
