With the launch of iconik, our new cloud hub for managing video, we’re bringing about new ways of working together and reducing the complexity around managing important media content. It’s a testament to the prolific nature of video material that our entire industry is built around managing it.

We want to be one step ahead of the game, so that our customers have everything they could possibly require from a media management system before they even realise they needed it.
