SymphonyAI Media developments
Over the past year, we dramatically improved our Revedia content revenue optimization platform. Using our 30+ years of media finance experience, we tailored the Revedia SaaS platform to fit the needs of our enterprise media clients. Revedia Linear and Revedia Digital are now optimized to help content sellers and platform providers maximize content licensing revenue from Pay TV, broadcasting, and all major OTT platforms.
As we onboarded media organizations in 2022, we learned more about the platform’s capabilities. In the spring, we published a blog post describing how Revedia is helping companies detect anomalies, generate revenue, and improve forecasting. We also created several case studies throughout the year describing Revedia’s impact on real companies.
In October, we launched a plethora of new features and capabilities for Revedia Digital as mentioned in this blog post and described in this 2-minute video. We hosted a webinar, “Intro to Revedia Digital,” demonstrating these features which you can now watch on demand.
Whether you are a Fortune 100 media executive or an independent consultant, we appreciate your support in 2022 and wish you a happy and prosperous 2023.
