Generate New Revenue and Deliver Content to the Right User with Linear Rights Metadata Management

With the proliferation of IP-enabled devices, consumers can try to access regional content when clearances have not been granted for the location, device, or time. Comcast Technology Solutions solves this challenge with Linear Rights Metadata Management (LRM). LRM enables programmers to ensure alternate content is properly delivered to the right audience at the right time.

Linear Rights Management Benefits:
Provides alternate content options in instances of content blackouts and device restrictions.
Supports the industry shift to terrestrial fiber content delivery.
Dynamically drives schedules into operator electronic programming guide (EPG) workflow.
Provides a single feed of rights metadata management to both programmers and operators through an aggregation of SCTE 224 events.
SCTE 224

This exciting development opens uses of blackout domains, regionalization, dynamic ad insertion, and so much more. Comcast Technology Solutions utilizes the SCTE 224 protocol within the LRM workflow for content providers and operators.
