SCREENING ON RIGHTSTRADE
Why should I use this screening room?
There are other screening rooms in the market. We believe the RightsTrade is the best solution for content sellers for several reasons:
Quality - RightsTrade provides a high quality cloud-based platform; viewable on major devices and browsers
Security - Advanced security features assure that each screener is protected and traceable through personalized watermarks. You can also set date/time parameters, limitations on number of views, number of devices used and IP targeting.
Analytics - View user activity to analyze data and follow up on sales/allocate marketing expenses
Service - maintained by expert team of developers and industry professionals, responsive to user needs and requests.
How secure is the screening room?
- A screener requires an AUTHORIZATION be granted to the viewing user by any SELLER/ADMIN at the rights-holding company.
- The AUTHORIZATION is tied to the viewer’s account credentials (username/password)
- The AUTHORIZATION is time-limited to a specified date-range and access can be limited down to the minute
- The AUTHORIZATION can optionally be limited to a certain number of views
- The AUTHORIZATION can be optionally limited to a certain number of “devices” (browser/computer combination). So for example, you can limit the authorization to only three devices (eg: Work computer, home computer, and iPad). If the user tries to view on a fourth device, they will be unable.
How should I send you my video assets?
We will securely handle the transcode/upload process of your film from any format. In order to get started, contact us at email@example.com and our client support managers will walk you through the asset delivery process.
Can I invite buyers that are not registered at RightsTrade to watch my films?
Of course! You can invite any of your contacts to screen and they will be taken directly to your screener. They will be able to watch the screener by simply providing a username and password.
