Based on its recent analysis of the global video managed services market, Frost and Sullivan recognises Deluxe Entertainment Services Group (Deluxe) with the 2018 Global Innovation Excellence Frost Radar Award for its video managed services solution, Deluxe One. The native cloud-based platform, along with the company’s focus on automating tedious elements of the end-to-end media workflow, has raised the profile of the company in a highly competitive market.
The Innovation Excellence award is bestowed upon companies that are industry leaders reinventing themselves through research and development investments and innovation. These may be companies that are entering a new market and contend for leadership through heavy investment in RandD and innovation.
“As an innovative technology company, it builds products for best-in-class post, preparation, localisation and distribution services of TV shows, films other forms of media content,” said Melody Siefken, Digital Media Research Analyst. “To unify all stages of the video workflow and content ecosystem, Deluxe created Deluxe One, a cloud-based platform with an open API architecture.”
Deluxe receives most of its business from global content providers and works with nearly every major studio, broadcaster and OTT. Deluxe’s powerful, modular, and cloud-based technology allows users to seamlessly ingrate with all systems and vendors in the video creation and distribution space.
“The company has a network of microservices that allows it to tailor Deluxe One to the specific needs and goals of its clients, using only the components they require,” noted Melody Siefken. “In April 2019, Deluxe chose AWS for its native cloud platform partner, which strengthens its platform with a powerful and flexible architecture on the AWS Cloud. Furthermore, Deluxe is deeply involved in the interoperable master formats (IMF) standardisation discussion, which will lead to Deluxe One’s growth as a platform that supports IMF.”
