Artwork

InFlow Media has launched an artificial intelligence cropping service that automatically identifies the optimal focus point of any artwork before resizing and recropping the artwork according to your technical specifications - e.g. when converting artwork from landscape to portrait when no portrait picture is provided from the studio.

Technology

InFlow Media has delivered high-quality EPG metadata to international pay-TV platforms for more than 20 years via our proprietary database EDI+. The database is constantly being developed to ensure we stay ahead of the curve and meet tomorrow's stringent demands of our customers

You choose the business model that best suits your needs

InFlow Media offers two business models:

 

  • Flat monthly fee arrangement based on number of channels  and datafields delivered requirements

  • SLA value-based business model where each channel delivered is measured according to contractually agreed upon SLA parameters such as datafields, artwork requirements and delivery times. The business model is 100% transparent with 24/7 online customer access to an SLA calculation tool so that customers can track delivery quality and remuneration at any point in time.

Delivery formats and frequency

InFlow Media delivers quality checked and validated metadata according to your needs and specifications - both in terms of frequency, batch sizes and technical format. InFlow Media can deliver processed incremental updates down to every 5 minutes, or we can send full updates e.g. once per day if that better suits your needs.

 

We support multiple delivery techonogies. We can push data in any you want to your FTP or you can pick it up from ours. You can also connect to our API to retrieve processed data as and when you require

QA and monitoring

InFlow Media QA process and in-house built monitoring system ensures the delivery of quality.
