The Bodhi Tree Group helped at large broadcaster and multi-platform service provider in APAC lay the groundwork for optimizing their rights operations to meet this [...]
We continue our series of blog posts on past projects by looking at non-linear operations. Recently, The Bodhi Tree Group worked with a European VOD service provider to improve their content operations in order to increase the amount of assets and metadata managed. As with most non-linear service providers, our client faced some common challenges:

The Bodhi Tree Group recently helped a major [...]
