SALT LAKE CITY, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Touch Media, the Salt Lake City, Utah-based technology company behind the fastest-growing digital media content management platform in the entertainment industry, has brought its suite of professional content distribution and management products to MIPTV in Cannes, France. The full suite of products, including Bridge, Red Touch Media's secure content management and distribution product, will be unveiled to TV content owners and global audiences at MIPTV in Cannes, France, April 8-11.
Red Touch Media's Bridge product enables content owners to control all aspects of their digital assets, including production and distribution management, consumption tracking, user behavior monitoring, billing and reporting and secure screening. To erase the headache of thousands of DVD screeners, unsecured distribution tactics and unmanageable analytics, RTM created Bridge for studios and networks to deliver pilots, trailers, screeners and sales materials to select audiences. Bridge users retain control of their content after it's been distributed and are able to monitor analytics on how it was used. All MIPTV attendees and media are invited to visit Red Touch Media's booth (A0.09) and yacht (S01) for demonstrations of Bridge and its complimentary products, Express and Connect.
"Red Touch Media may be a new name to many people managing the distribution of television content around the world, but we've been doing this for more than a decade," said Wayne Scholes, Executive Chairman and CEO, Red Touch Media. "We have proven our technology – and the economic benefits it yields for media and entertainment companies – over and over again. We're looking forward to introducing our improved offerings to new audiences at MIPTV – which represents our official global launch for Red Touch Media."
Red Touch Media will host evening cocktail parties under the stars on its yacht, in Cannes Old Port, Yacht Berth #S01. Guests will enjoy champagne, fresh cocktails, and passed hors d'oeuvres aboard the yacht with a live DJ. MIPTV attendees are invited to drop by with their guests to relax, recharge, and download complimentary films, television shows, and music.
