By assisting content owners to keep on top of content they already own, and have incoming on a daily basis, Imagen 5 implements a unique set of processes and technical expertise to ensure that video is managed in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. As the sheer amount of sports video data grows throughout the world, Imagen will continually strive to create a platform that can create revenue from legacy and near live video – as well as helping to make the management of any size video library as simple as possible.”
