Access to Audio / Video

Outside of digital distribution, our clients’ needs vary as to how and when they want their audio and video shared with or sent to third parties. Based on their instructions, access to content is tailored so that it is only made available to authorised parties. Furthermore, geographic filtering can also be used for contract compliance as well as fraud prevention.

New Formats

Today, storage formats for audio and video are always evolving, and if each evolution brings progress it also raises questions of how any new technology can best serve your content. The Source is constantly monitoring the market in order to keep our clients’ content efficiently stored, accessible and safe, and also making sure that the next available format is the market leader and not a passing phase.
