The OWNZONES Discover Screener offers everything content companies need to impress buyers, licensors, and reviewers. Manage, market, license, and deliver your content, streamlining sales, distribution, and rights management.
Discover has a seamless integration with OWNZONES Connect™, the content supply chain built in the cloud, meaning it can facilitate the instantaneous fulfillment of avails. A buyer can log in to Discover from anywhere in the world via a browser window and easily navigate, view, and select content they’re interested in. That immediately notifies a sales representative and simultaneously kicks off a workflow in Connect that alerts the operations team--enabling push-button delivery to any platform.
Discover is unique in that it was originally built as a B2C white-label OTT platform. From its conception, a focus on delivering a premium user experience with a rich CMS was the driving force throughout the development of Discover. It’s the only product that will be on the market that provides a premium B2C experience for B2B use in streamlining the end-to-end content buying and delivery workflow.
Discover bridges the gap between content buying and fulfillment, a historically disjointed workflow. With this all-in-one solution that connects sales and operations units, Discover provides more transparency into the workflow and instills assurance that companies can deliver what they sell.

With Rights Out, MEDIAGENIX extends rights management to content distribution and licensing. Integrated with WHATS’ON this cloud-native solution completes your overview on the consumption of rights across scheduling and sales. Rights Out cuts through the complexity and pitfalls of selling rights, eliminates time consuming chores, and leaves more time to optimise a key revenue stream.
Rights Out supports the complete sales workflow, enabling your commercial department or distribution unit to
manage a catalogue of saleable rights;
ensure that rights can be shared across scheduling and sales departments;
make a proposal to the market, or at request of a potential customer, and define clearly the licensed rights, conditions, pricing;
be warned about conflicts with your own exploitation right and the already sold rights;
process the actions to be performed in order to conclude a deal: clearing rights with actors, archives, rights owners;
finalize the deal via a deal memo document that will officialise the agreement;
manage the costs and revenue distribution to the various parties involved.
The sales catalogue lists the titles that can be sold as well as the distribution rights, which describe where, when and how these titles can be sold.
Supporting offers and deals
Offers and Deals in Rights Out support the sales workflow with (potential) buyers. Additional information about the proposal will be stored according as the offer converts into a deal. Throughout this entire workflow the licence rights capture the rights information you are selling to the buyer. On the licence right you will, for instance, specify that the deal concerns a TVOD right in Australia for three months, in English, for 10,000 euros and that the buyer has exclusive rights within the first month.
Rights Out also supports the sales of holdbacks, which grant additional exclusivity to the buyer.
Keeping track of tasks
In order to finalise the deal, additional clearing for a music piece might be needed, or additional subtitles need to be produced. You can keep track of all this work to avoid that the deal is jeopardized because crucial steps have been skipped.
Suppliers, Rights Holders and Revenue Distribution further help to ensure that the negotiated price covers all of the costs and fees of a proposal to a customer.
Scheduling and distribution in perfect synch
Once the deal with the customer is finalised, the rights information will impact the scheduling department, which might have to reschedule your top-running show, because it has been sold exclusively. All of this information is synchronised seamlessly between both systems and both the scheduling and distribution departments will be kept up to date of any upcoming changes.
Dashboards in Rights Out can help to ensure that deadlines are met or help to better understand which titles are most profitable.
Cutting through complexity and eliminating time consuming and error-prone chores, you will find more time to close more deals with optimum efficiency.
