KEY FEATURES AT A GLANCE
SEARCH ENGINGE FOR FILMS
The core element of IMZ Online Services is its powerful search engine through which all film productions on the market can be found. For buyers, this means easy access to the largest catalogue worldwide. For vendors, this means new visibility at a global level!
IMZ Online Services includes tools for the digital promotion + visible placement of the productions, catalogues + special catalogues of market players to reach buyers all over the world.
HIGH QUALITY METADATA
The IMZ + its members are defining a new set of standards on metadata for transactions to take place in the most efficient way. When all films contain the same minimum set of data in a unified format, visibility through the search engine + compatibility between parties is guaranteed!
ONLINE MARKETPLACE FOR FILM LICENCES
From searching + finding a production, to initiating negotiations with buyers + vendors to closing a deal: the entire film licence trading process is supported by IMZ Online Services.
CO-FINANCING + PITCHING PLATFORM
Films are often only made possible by co-financing. This means cooperation between several companies + investors, which can easily be initiated + negotiated directly on IMZ Online Services.
SECURE NEGOTIATION + NOTARISATION
Negotiations can take place directly on the marketplace under maximum privacy thanks to end-to-end encrypted messaging + peer-to-peer connections. Once the system has ruled out conflicts with existing licences, the licence agreement can be signed electronically under state-of-the-art security standards!
CONTENT-BASED ASSET IDENTIFICATION: ISCC
The IMZ + the International Standard Content Code (ISCC) Foundation are developing what already exists for books: an international standard identification code for films with no profit-oriented agenda. Content-based identification will be possible for any snippet longer than 2 seconds to guarantee that nothing is left unclear!
COPYRIGHT PROTECTION: EUROPEAN LICENCE LEDGER
Who is the film owner? Who has which distribution rights? What types of licences have been issued for the film? Like a land register for films, the European Licence Ledger serves as a legal basis + registers all fundamental information with state-of-the-art blockchain technology!
LICENCE CONFLICT PREVENTION
While ISCC covers the question of asset ownership, the European Licence Ledger registers all information concerning licences. Combined, this will provide a state-of-the-art, automatically applied service to guarantee clarity + prevent licence conflicts.
