Axinom is helping power OTT video streaming services for Cinedigm, a leading independent content distributor in the United States. With Axinom CMS, Cinedigm is able to automate and simplify its content management workflows enabling them to easily manage multiple OTT channels.
Cinedigm is a leading independent content distributor in the United States, with direct relationships across many digital platforms and retail storefronts, including iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Target, as well as its own direct-to-consumer platform. Cinedigm has a distribution library of over 60,000 film and TV episodes. In the last two years, the company has successfully launched two subscription-based OTT services, CONtv and Dove Channel, in addition to its existing ad-supported Docurama channel.
Cinedigm selected Axinom CMS to manage and streamline its next-generation video-on-demand platform. With an extensive content portfolio of standard definition and high definition titles across all key mobile and set top platforms, Cinedigm offers its video streaming service as both an Advertising-supported Video on Demand (AVOD) and on a Subscription-based Video on Demand (SVOD) model. By deploying Axinom CMS, Cinedigm will immediately benefit from the increased operational efficiencies created by the system´s automated workflows and offer high scalability and increased flexibility of its video-on-demand platform.

The robustness and reliability of Axinom CMS will allow Cinedigm to scale internationally, reduce manual work and significantly cut costs for recurring tasks. It is my great pleasure to see that Axinom CMS will empower the largest independent content distributor´s VOD offering in the US market.”
