Cinedigm Announces matchpoint™, a Next-Generation OTT and Content Distribution Platform

Fri, 07/12/2018 - 01:45

The matchpoint managed-service greatly reduces CapEx and OpEx costs with innovative modules to handle app deployments, content distribution, analytics and reporting, customer management, and more

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) today announced plans to launch matchpoint™, an innovative managed-service technology platform that enables content distributors, OTT service operators, web publishers, and OEMs to efficiently and cost-effectively create compelling OTT and media subscription services. matchpoint will be offered at competitive pricing to suit the unique needs of potential customers, and will be available for preview at the upcoming CES conference in Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel from January 8-11, 2019.

Key features of the platform include:

  • Modern, intuitive OTT applications – recently redesigned for clean aesthetics and high usability, the matchpoint Blueprint™ app development platform provides rapid development and cost-efficient cross-platform applications with robust consumer features including integrated billing, configurable on-boarding, custom watch lists, in-app notifications and alerts, machine learning-based recommendations, single sign-on (SSO), DRM, and more. For examples of consumer-facing applications, visit Cinedigm’s digital-first channel CONtv on the web, on iOS, and/or on Android.
     
  • Support for mixed-media content types – Consumers demand enhanced value from their OTT services, and matchpoint takes this to the next level with robust support for non-video media, including music, streaming audio, linear video channels, podcasts, audiobooks, eBooks, digital comics, magazines, and more. Cinedigm plans to announce category partners in the near future, enabling operators to quickly curate and add content from a variety of digital media partners.
     
  • Support for third-party distribution – Today, most OTT platforms focus solely on direct-to-consumer distribution via apps. However, the fastest growing segment of the business is distributing channels into third-party ecosystems like Amazon Channels and virtual MVPDs. The matchpoint™ Dispatch distribution platform enables content owners to distribute their content quickly and easily through a cloud-based order management system, with planned support for more than 80 distribution outlets. This feature dramatically streamlines workflows while simultaneously reducing third-party distribution costs by up to 80 percent.
     
  • World-class systems analytics – the matchpoint Insights™ platform provides robust, world-class analytics and monitoring services at a device level including:

      °  Content consumption and content performance analysis
      °  Subscriber growth management along with churn prediction & cohort analysis
      °  Marketing performance & attribution management
      °  User engagement & user retention tracking
      °  Territorial & device penetration analysis
      °  Ad fill rates & ad performance monitoring
      °  Customer service & ticket management
      °  Quality of Service (QoS) monitoring, including error handling, stream buffering, playback error tracking, and more
  • Modular, customizable platform – With a modern, open API-based architecture, the matchpoint system is designed to work seamlessly with a variety of technology vendors and partners, enabling customers to integrate with their existing enterprise systems or best-of-breed eco-system vendors. Cinedigm will be announcing key partners for our preferred vendor program in the near future.

In development for over four years, matchpoint currently serves as the platform for the management and operation of Cinedigm’s growing portfolio of OTT channels. Additionally, the company recently utilized the matchpoint Dispatch™ distribution module to automate the delivery of over 5,000 hours of digital programming to third-party partners, including the launch of Dove Channel on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 platform, which resulted in a 93 percent cost savings and completion of delivery in less than a third of the time it would have taken with third-party vendors.

“From the rise of third-party distribution to the evolving needs of consumers, the OTT space looks very different than it did three years ago,” said Erick Opeka, President of Cinedigm Networks. “However, most vendors have not been able to keep pace with these innovative developments. We created the matchpoint platform to address the key challenge facing the OTT space—creating a product that is cost effective and at the same time efficient in delivering great content experiences globally on any platform—be it an app, virtual vMVPD, or third-party ecosystem.”

“With the introduction of matchpoint, we are now able to more effectively and easily meet the growing demands of the OTT business,” Opeka continued. “Additionally, we have significantly decreased our time-to-market output, while reducing the many challenges that arise with the digital distribution of multiple types of media through automation—providing fast deployment and extensive support for a wide variety of media and mediums.”

Cinedigm Business Impact
matchpoint™ will be commercially available to customers beginning in fiscal calendar Q1, 2019. The company expects to generate revenues from app development and recurring SaaS fees upon signing of customers and deployment of their services, beginning in second quarter of calendar 2019. The company also expects to realize substantial OpEx savings from the utilization of the matchpoint distribution capabilities in other areas of Cinedigm’s distribution business.

Introducing Yandex’s Smartphone

Wed, 05/12/2018 - 14:40

MOSCOW and AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, Dec. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), a technology company that builds intelligent products and services powered by machine learning, has unveiled its first smartphone, Yandex.Phone. The company’s smartphone is the first phone that is fully powered by Yandex’s intelligent assistant, Alice, the leading AI assistant for the Russian market. Yandex.Phone is also the first phone that comes preinstalled with a suite of mobile services from the Yandex ecosystem.

Yandex’s smartphone uses AI to deliver a highly personalised mobile experience based on the users’ location, routine, and their usage pattern. In the morning, for example, Yandex.Phone can provide traffic updates for the daily commute along with turn-by-turn navigation from Yandex.Maps, suggest a personalized Yandex.Music playlist for the journey, or send forecast updates from Yandex.Weather.  

While mobile users have been able to utilize Alice for Yandex services on other devices, Yandex.Phone is the first smartphone in Russia in which the AI assistant can be used across the majority of apps and services. Regardless of what they’re doing on the phone, users can have Alice manage everyday tasks for them. For example, Alice can add an event to one’s calendar without any interruption while they’re watching a movie or playing a game. Users will also be able to interact with Alice remotely, as the assistant will respond to voice prompts when within range of the user.

Yandex.Phone users have access to over 34,000 existing Alice skills to help with tasks such as ordering food, booking flights, and calling a taxi. With the introduction of Yandex.Phone, Alice can now also place voice calls for users. Through the Yandex.Dialogues skills platform, third-party developers have created thousands of skills for Alice, with more being developed every day.  

The Alice-powered smartphone is also fully integrated with Yandex Business Directory, which provides users with a comprehensive list of businesses across Russia and includes detailed information and search options for goods and services. This feature allows Yandex.Phone to easily identify unknown business callers or contact a business simply by entering the name of a company or a service into the phone’s search function.

“Yandex.Phone is built to offer Russian users a smartphone equipped with all the localized tools needed for users to navigate their daily routines. Users can interact with Alice and the most widely used Yandex applications in a new way on this phone,” says Fedor Yezhov, Corporate Vice President of Ecosystem Products at Yandex. “Fully integrated into the phone, Alice provides users with comprehensive access to Yandex apps. It’s not necessary to open individual apps to solve a task - just ask Alice.”

With the purchase of a Yandex.Phone, owners will receive a free six-month subscription to Yandex.Plus, which provides unlimited access to Yandex.Music and discounts for Yandex.Taxi and Yandex.Drive. Yandex.Phone buyers will also receive a 300 ruble credit for Yandex.Taxi and 500 rubles for their Yandex.Money account, along with 10% cash back on purchases made with Yandex.Money for three months.

Yandex.Phone runs Android 8.1 and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. It features a 5.65-inch Full HD+ screen with a 2160x1080 resolution. A fingerprint sensor lets the user unlock their phone with just a touch, while the NFC technology enables contactless payments. The Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec ensures quality sound for gaming and streaming video and music. Yandex.Phone is also equipped with dual rear 12 MP and 5 MP cameras and a 5 MP front camera.

Yandex.Phone will cost 17,990 rubles ($270) and will be available on December 6 at the Yandex Store at the company’s headquarters in Moscow. On December 7, Yandex.Phone will be available through Beeline, one of Russia’s leading telecommunications providers, and at M.Video and Eldorado retail electronics stores. Users will also be able to buy the phone on December 7 through Yandex’s new Beru e-commerce marketplace, with free delivery across Russia.

Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) is a technology company that builds intelligent products and services powered by machine learning. Our goal is to help consumers and businesses better navigate the online and offline world. Since 1997, we have delivered world-class, locally relevant search and information services. Additionally, we have developed market-leading on-demand transportation services, navigation products, and other mobile applications for millions of consumers across the globe. Yandex, which has 30 offices worldwide, has been listed on the NASDAQ since 2011.

Avid Keeps the Carolina Panthers at the Cutting Edge with Multi-year Enterprise Agreement

Tue, 04/12/2018 - 19:00

Six-year agreement will enable the Panthers to drive engagement and enhance the fan experience—while increasing operational efficiency and reducing costs

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID), the leading technology provider that powers the media and entertainment industry, today announced that the Carolina Panthers NFL organization has entered a six-year enterprise agreement with Avid to standardize its media production workflow on the MediaCentral® platform. The agreement will enable the Panthers to engage fans with higher-quality content and stay current with the latest technology, while improving operational efficiency and reducing costs.

The Panthers’ aging post production infrastructure was increasing the risk of downtime and impeding the video department’s ability to meet deadlines. The Panthers’ production crew had limited storage capacity to meet growing content demands and were unable to use the latest software features to take advantage of new workflows, codecs, and delivery requirements. They needed to upgrade their post production facilities but wanted to avoid having to make large capital investments every few years to keep the infrastructure up to date.

The Panthers turned to Avid and channel partner Marshall Graphics to provide a single platform for storage, asset management and archive that’s fully integrated into its control room replay system for fast-turnaround production. The enterprise agreement will allow the Panthers to upgrade to Avid’s most advanced hardware and software throughout the six-year term with optimal pricing and predictability.

“Our new MediaCentral workflow provides fast, ubiquitous access to content for social, web and broadcast productions so that we can deliver an engaging, immersive fan experience to drive attendance, viewership, brand loyalty, and sponsorship,” said Stephen Herbster, Post Production Manager at Carolina Panthers. “Our multi-year enterprise agreement with Avid solves our challenges in a unique and creative way and enables us to stay current with the latest technology while reducing our operating costs.”

The Panthers’ sports production workflow includes Avid NEXIS®, the media industry’s first software-defined storage platform, Media Composer® nonlinear editing systems, and Pro Tools® digital audio workstations. The enterprise agreement includes facility upgrades across workstations, servers, networking and storage, as well as annual software upgrades and training.

“To engage fans with high-quality, immersive content, sports media organizations need to keep their production facilities up to date, but they’re also under growing pressure to reduce costs,” said Ray Thompson, Director, Broadcast and Media Solutions Marketing at Avid. “Avid’s enterprise-wide approach to technology acquisition, deployment and support gives the Panthers a flexible and predictable business model that delivers reduced deployment and integration costs, value-added managed services, and consistent training and support over the lifetime of the agreement.”

YANGAROO Reports Third Quarter Results

Tue, 27/11/2018 - 19:30

Increasing revenue in the Advertising Division and reduced operating expenses in Q3, produce positive results in the current quarter over the previous quarter

TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF), the leading secure digital media management and distribution company, today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Revenue for Q3 was $1,735,291, 12% lower than the same period in 2017 and 3% lower than Q2 2018, with net income of $84,846 and normalized EBITDA of $204,301. Revenue for the first 9 months of 2018 was $5,482,305, 5% lower than the first 9 months of 2017, with net income of $150,989 and normalized EBITDA of $432,232. The decreases from the prior year, both quarterly and year-to-date, were due to reduced campaign spending by clients and in some cases loss of business by advertising clients.

Advertising revenue of $1,036,861 in Q3 has dropped 19% over the same period in 2017 and increased 1% over the previous quarter. The year-to-date revenue for the first 9 months was $3,291,408, which has dropped 7% over the same period in 2017, for reasons discussed above. The slight increase from the prior period was due to sales starting to rise in the quarter primarily due to seasonal increases in order flow.

Entertainment Division’s Q3 revenue was $698,430, up 0.5% over 2017 and down 10% over the previous quarter. The revenue for the first 9 months of 2018 was $2,190,897, 1% lower than the same period in 2017. The increase from Q3 2017 was mainly due to increase of licensing revenue and music audio delivery revenue; net of a decrease in the awards management revenue as a result of the change in revenue recognition standards in the current period. The decrease in revenue from Q2 2018 was mainly due to seasonal changes in the volume of video deliveries and timing of revenue recognition from individual awards shows. This decrease was net of an increase in membership subscription fees. The slight decrease of revenue for the first 9 months of 2018 was mainly a result of a decline in the volume of membership subscription and music video deliveries, offset by increases in music audio delivery and licensing revenue.

“As stated last quarter, despite lower revenue year to date, business development efforts are progressing well,” said Gary Moss, President & CEO of YANGAROO. “I am pleased to report that the Company expects that new customers signed in the second half of this year and who are coming on-line in the fourth quarter, will contribute annual run-rate revenue growth in the Advertising division, of at least 15% in 2019. The Company also expects Advertising division revenue to increase sequentially in Q4 from Q3 due to the seasonal strengthening of order flow and business from new customers. Business development efforts continue aggressively, and we anticipate adding to this new business over the coming months. The Company continues to carefully control costs in line with revenue.” 

Total operating expense was $1,600,203 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, 23% lower than the previous year and 13% lower than the previous quarter. The year-to-date operating expenses was $5,347,539, 4% lower than the same period in 2017. The decreases for all the periods were primarily due to one-time restructuring costs incurred in Q3 2017 and the adjustment to the bonus accrual in Q3 2018. The decreases were offset by higher value of stock options granted and salary adjustments in the current year. The Company has retained a net income of $84,846 in the current quarter, compared to a net loss of $215,711 in the same quarter of last year; and retained a net income of $150,989 in the first 9 months of 2018, compared to a net loss of $11,265 in the same period of last year. Excluding the impact of non-cash and non-operating costs, the normalized EBITDA was $204,301 in Q3 2018 and $432,232 for the first 9 months of 2018.

Management of SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) at Podcast Row, MJBizCon, Talk about the Growth of the Sector and their Company and the Big Opportunity in CBD

Mon, 26/11/2018 - 18:00

POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering marijuana and hemp stocks and its cannabis podcast site www.potcasts.ca, report from Podcast Row in Las Vegas at this year’s biggest MJBizCon show to date. Today’s special edition features an interview with the management of SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING), Mr. Gregory P. Lambrecht Founder, Chairman, CEO and Mr. William Ralston, President and Director discuss the growth of the MJBizCon conference, the industry and their company.

Attending since the first year of MJBizCon, Ralston and Lambrecht have both witnessed first-hand the growth of the sector. Looking at their entry into the cannabis space Ralston said, “SinglePoint’s history was always mobile payments, text messaging and mobile technology. When Colorado and Washington opened up selling cannabis, we thought lets go after that business. We had a mobile payments technology, they need these payment solutions and a lot of people were afraid to touch it.  So we jumped in.”

“We acquired GreenStar Payment Solutions and started SingleSeed that we eventually rolled GreenStar into. And there we were, processing payments in the cannabis market.  From there we continued to grow and acquired DIGS.  We really are an ancillary pick and shovel company and that’s where we see a lot of the opportunity.”

Talking about the CBD market Ralston told Investor Ideas, “SingleSeed.com is selling all of our CBD based products and we are looking at adding other brands to that site to become the e-commerce hub distributing these products.”

He went on to say, “We see a huge opportunity in the market and there may be a larger market there, as there are still a lot of people that don’t want to use cannabis yet. The latest numbers that we saw are tremendous; it’s almost at 40% of the cannabis market and it’s just catching on. We are not only looking at selling these products but also looking at acquisitions that for us, would open up the floodgates.”

In closing Lambrecht talks about their ambitious acquisition plans to add significant revenue to the company’s bottom line and to uplist.

CEO of American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) at Podcast Row, MJBizCon, Talks about the Company's CBD Infused Beverage Line and Goals for Sales & Distribution 

Mon, 19/11/2018 - 18:35

POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering marijuana and hemp stocks and its cannabis podcast site www.potcasts.ca, report from Las Vegas at this year’s biggest MJBizCon show to date. Today’s special edition features an interview with Ryan Fishoff, CEO and Interim Chairman of American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) from convention's first ever Podcast Row.

Talking about his goals for attending MJBizCon, Fishoff told Investor Ideas, “What we are really here for is sales and distribution and maybe even some acquisitions.” 

He also discussed recent news “that its LALPINA CBD beverage will be sold at Come Back Daily (www.comebackdaily.co) in New York, NY.  Come Back Daily, located at 381 Broadway, in the TriBeca neighborhood of Manhattan, is New York City's first CBD focused pop-up store.” This announcement comes after the Company unveiled its wholesale sales strategy that identified the New York market as one of its key areas of focus.

Fishoff said, “Following our news, we are looking at meeting with new distributors in our four main geographic areas: New York Metropolitan, Miami South Florida, Las Vegas and the Greater Los Angeles area. So this is a really good venue for me to meet distributors all at one point.”

He also goes on to discuss what differentiates Lalpina, the Company's premium CBD beverage lifestyle brand, with over a million Instagram (instagram.com/lalpinabrands ) followers. “I dare for you to find another CBD cannabis lifestyle brand with anything close to that following. We know how to market and we have partners that know how to market.”

Fishoff also updates investors on the Company’s up-listing, saying, “We are still interviewing auditors and feel we are still on target to get something done by the end of the year to file a form 10.”

Chief Science Officer, Dr. Arup Sen of Sproutly Canada Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) at Podcaster Row, MJBizCon, Talks about Unique Water-Soluble Technology and the Ability to Create Designer Cannabis Beverages  

Mon, 19/11/2018 - 18:30

POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering marijuana and hemp stocks and its cannabis podcast site www.potcasts.ca report from Las Vegas at this year’s biggest MJBizCon show to date, from the first ever Podcaster’s Row. Today’s special edition features an interview with Dr. Arup Sen, the Chief Science Officer and Member of the Board of Directors for Sproutly Canada Inc. (CSE:SPR) (OTCQB:SRUTF) (38G.F).

Dr. Sen sat down with Investor Ideas to discuss Sproutly’s patent-pending APP technology and how this scientific breakthrough could transform the cannabis beverage industry, as well as his role as Chief Science Officer in the company.

Dr. Arup Sen, PhD, has an impressive background prior to joining Sproutly, with over thirty-five years in research and executive management in biotech and pharma companies.  

In mentioning how he came  to  Sproutly, Dr. Sen told Investor Ideas, “About three years ago we got interested in cannabis plants, however the challenge was that all the biologically active molecules are oils, as opposed to the other stuff that we had worked with. So, we developed, and have a patent-pending process that is unique in that we are able to find and recover naturally water-soluble forms of these oils, kind of like cholesterol in our blood, the good and bad cholesterol, not free cholesterol or free oils.”

He went on say, “They are water soluble; that’s why they flow through the blood.  With that discovery we embarked on a path of founding Infusion Biosciences, developed the technology further and were able to show that we could recover commercially feasible amounts of these unique naturally water-soluble forms of the entire plant/cannabinoid/terpene profile. This also exhibited an unusual feature which is expected only off of truly water-dissolved molecules, not formulated by emulsion or encapsulation, in that the truly water-soluble material, just like sugar and salt, go into our system rapidly, (hence fast onset for the cannabinoids and clear out from the system rapidly), so our offset time is less than an hour and half and most of them less than an hour. This is in sharp contrast to either free oil or all of the formulations that the industry has developed over the past couple of decades that formulate oil into water.

“This now positions us to be the only player that can truly make, what would be called ‘designer beverages,’ where cannabis components are one component but we can add minerals, we can add anti-oxidants and we can add vitamins to really create functionality in the beverage and have controlled dosage.”

Dr. Sen went on to discuss how the cannabis plant has been an aide in forcing innovation in the biotech, pharma and science fields, saying “We have a huge opioid crisis, we know that. After having been in the development of molecules from natural and artificial sources for 45 years, I can think of no better plant then cannabis to come up with the molecules that will actually address the opioid crisis safely. The plant provides the means of reward for scientists to come up with technologies that can eventually have the dream of finding something that is going to truly address some critical issues that human society faces globally. Both the unique features, good and bad of the cannabis plant forces innovation.”

MJBizCon Cannabis Show in Las Vegas Showcases Growth in Sector; Aurora Cannabis, Acreage Holdings, DirectView Holdings Inc. (OTC: DIRV), Cronos Group

Mon, 19/11/2018 - 18:00

POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering marijuana and hemp stocks and its cannabis podcast site www.potcasts.ca report from Las Vegas at this year’s biggest MJBizCon show to date, from the first ever Podcasters Row.

Since it was founded seven years ago, MJBizCon has grown to become the largest trade show in the cannabis industry.

This year’s record attendance was a notable reflection of the sectors growth and all the industry professionals on the floor were impressed.

Roger Ralston, CEO of DirectView Holdings Inc. (OTC: DIRV), there to introduce his security surveillance technology to industry peers, when asked about the conference, like many others in attendance, said, “I’m just blown away by how many people are here. I’ve heard numbers from 25,000 to 30,000 people are here and I look around and it’s a sea of people and I see opportunity all over the place.”

Ralston went on to discuss the industry response he and DIRV received stating, “It’s very positive! The fortunate part that we have is that all these people here that have booths have specialized items and they may be selling certain things to certain industries and certain sized shops, and as I’ve said before, we’re like the electric company, so the products and services we sell are something virtually everybody here can use. The opportunities here are boundless.”

Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora Cannabis (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB), speaking in a panel session said regarding the 2018 Farm Bill in US "If this farm bill passes in the US, the US may very well beat us (Canada) to the punch with regards to CBD."

Talking about funded capacity versus actual capacity in the cannabis space he said, "Nobody is at full capacity yet. There's a big difference between the funded capacity versus actual plant product available and the global demand for cannabis is very significant."

Booth also said about late stage Canadian companies entering the Canadian market "If you're a Canadian company just starting out in the cannabis space and looking to go public in Canada, I'd say 'Good luck!' However, if you're based in the US and looking to go public on the Canadian exchanges I think it’s a great opportunity and hats off to you." 

Acreage Holdings did just that and listed last week on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE: ACRG.U); with "U" indicating shares trade in U.S. dollars. With one of the largest geographic footprints of any cannabis company, it currently owns and/or operates cultivation, processing and dispensary operations,

The first day of MJBizCon featured a ‘Fireside Chat’ with Acreage CEO, Kevin Murphy. With former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives John Boehner and former Governor of the State of Massachusetts, Bill Weld on its Board of Advisors and now former Prime Minister of Canada, Brian Mulroney joining the Board as well, this was one of the most talked about companies at the conference.

Other room-filled panels included ‘Globalization of Cannabis: Trends & Opportunities‘ panelists with speakers Alfredo Pascual, International Analyst, Marijuana Business Daily; Deepak Anand,  VP, Business Development & Government Relations, Cannabis Compliance and Mike Gorenstein, CEO of  Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON).

For investors following the sector that had an opportunity to attend MJBizCon, they would have to agree the growth of the conference and the sector is explosive and even though not all panel members agreed on where the industry is heading, the crowded conference spoke for itself.
