  • --

Global studio Breakthrough Entertainment has transitioned to a completely cloud-based delivery system through WCPMedia Services for the delivery of its premium content to clients; major networks and digital channels around the world.

As a distributor and production house Breakthrough has a catalogue of over 40 feature films and 4,000 television episodes including such popular titles as the L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables trilogy, David Rocco’s Dolce Vita and The Adventures of Napkin Man. The Toronto based studio began using WCPMedia’s cloud-based platform earlier this year to deliver content to broadcasters around the world. The company is now using WCPMedia to deliver shows each month to broadcasters on six continents.

“WCPMedia gives us a powerful edge by securely delivering our programming to our broadcasting partners via their high-speed, high-volume file transfers and media asset management system,” said Nat Abraham, partner, president, distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “As soon as our files are uploaded onto the WCPMedia cloud, our customers have immediate access. It’s fast, easy and secure.”

Abraham noted, “We can’t use a file transfer service if it doesn’t have a better than 99-percent success rate.” 

Although Breakthrough primarily employs WCPMedia for file delivery, the platform also includes powerful features for media management, transcoding, media review, and marketing. As a result, it can benefit a wide variety of media companies with different requirements and applications.

“We’re excited to be working with Nat and his team at Breakthrough”, said Giovanni Contri, COO of WCPMedia Services, “The WCP cloud based platform is an ideal solution for managing the worldwide delivery of Breakthrough’s vast catalogue of film and TV programming. Breakthrough are content production and distribution leaders, and therefore we are proud to be supporting their leadership as well in secure cloud based delivery and asset management in the evolving broadcast landscape.”
