DISCOP SELECTS VUULR TO POWER NEW DIGITAL PLATFORM
18 June 2020
DISCOP, Africa’s most prominent Film and TV content Market has selected VUULR, the world’s leading B2B Content Rights Marketplace, to provide its technology to power DISCOP CLUB a brand new digital destination designed for African content producers to expand their sales intra-Africa and internationally.
DISCOP CLUB is designed specifically for African content producers to expand their sales intra-Africa and globally. The company’s aim is to sign-up more than 200 independent producers from Africa and premiere DISCOP CLUB at DISCOP's in-person market to be held in Johannesburg on 28 and 29 October 2020.
All content listed on DISCOP CLUB, will not only be seen by DISCOP CLUB Buyers in across the Continent, but will also feature on the VUULR marketplace, giving African content creators exposure to the more than 2,000 additional international buyers already registered and using VUULR.
Both on DISCOP CLUB and VUULR negotiations and transactions are done entirely online. Buyers can browse curated collections or find specific content easily via user-friendly search and filter functions as well as check Avails instantly and watch screeners and trailers on demand. Buyers can make flat rate offers and VOD platforms can also make offers with performance pricing models based on viewer count, stream length or share of advertising revenue.
“Engaging buyers across Africa and internationally, online, will be a game-changer for Africa’s content industry. Before DISCOP CLUB, the high cost of gaining international sales created a barrier for African content producers. DISCOP CLUB will democratize the access to distribution, giving content creators from all over Africa the opportunity for their content to sell globally with no registration fee” says Patrick Zuchowicki Jucaud, President of DISCOP.
“The rise in demand for international content and its increased accessibility offers unprecedented opportunities for African sellers to export and monetize their content in international markets with zero upfront costs and little effort. We look forward to supporting them with DISCOP CLUB” says Ben Flint, COO, VUULR.
