Ateliere Connect will enable Lionsgate to increase the speed of onboarding content to its library and navigate the increased complexity of content licensing by enhancing its digital supply chain management. In short, it helps reduce content storage costs while making it easier to deploy content quickly via streaming and licensing models.

Dan Goman, founder and CEO of Ateliere, said: “Ateliere Connect’s scaling capability will answer the changing needs for Lionsgate’s catalogue size and distribution requirements. In today’s market, the ability to deliver desired content fast is what drives subscriptions and advertising. Ateliere’s cost model ensures that studios’ budgets scale in direct correlation with their profit potential.”

Akin Ceylan, COO of home entertainment and global content distribution operations, Lionsgate, said: “Ateliere Connect will play an invaluable role in helping us migrate our distribution assets into the cloud and effectively transform our operational workflows by taking advantage of the efficiencies of a cloud ecosystem. This will enhance how we manage and monetize our company’s library content.”

Ateliere Connect will also integrate with Lionsgate’s new and existing solutions providers across the studio’s supply chain, leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS). Goman explained: “Our partnership with AWS enables Ateliere to deliver a scalable infrastructure for media management/distribution in a cost-effective solution.”
