TCB Media Rights has signed a three-year deal that will see its programming catalogue stored, managed and distributed by Visual Data Media Services.
A specialist in factual, factual entertainment and formats, TCB Media Rights’ portfolio contains more than 110 titles from 60-plus producer-partners including Arrow Media, Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder, GroupM Entertainment, Icon Films, Like A Shot Entertainment, Seven Productions and Wag TV.
As part of what is an exclusive agreement, all of its content will be consolidated at Visual Data’s London facility, and made available for both linear and digital distribution.
Max Murray-Burrows, head of operations at TCB Media Rights, said: “Over the next two years, we anticipate distributing around a 1,000 hours of content to a complex array of platforms, including around 25% to SVOD platforms. When volumes reach this level, it is critical to find a partner that is at the top of their game.”
James Greenwall, commercial director of Visual Data, added: “Our workflows are designed to help companies get their content to the widest possible audience in the best possible quality in the fastest possible time.”
The TCB catalogue includes Engineering Space (pictured), the 6x60 science series that was first shown on Smithsonian.
