Rights Awareness and Avail Strategy – presented by Steve Rippin, Director of Available and Avails Ops, Rightsline

Let existing deals and rights do the heavy lifting when it comes to generating OTT avails. Rightsline + Available is a single integrated platform that leverages all contractual rights data for the lifetime of a title (including acquisitions, sales, holdbacks, and sales plan windowing) to seamlessly inform OTT release planning ito greatly simplify the process of generating—and maintaining—OTT.X-compliant avails.

  • What are the best practices around organizing and strategizing the efficient release of hundreds or thousands of titles?
  • How can you automate the process of mitigating the impact to published avails when new deals are struck that impact retail partner windows and pricing?
  • How is this communicated to partners and most importantly, how is the granular data tracked for anyone in-house to see and act upon?

Rightsline, as an market-leading solution provider for Rights & Avails Management, is working to evolve with the industry and provide creative, technology-driven, and forward-thinking answers to these and many other questions facing modern studios and VOD retailers.
