It has been a while since we posted an update, we’ve had our head down working building out the platform and the Vuulr Marketplace business.
So here’s how we are doing…
Core KPIs are Tracking Well
The good news is that the core KPIs for the business are tracking well as you can see from the graphs below.
We have been doing well in terms of the breadth, depth and quality of content we have listed on the Marketplace. We now carry thousands of titles — covering 55 languages and 56 Genres — giving our buyers a huge choice. This make us an attractive destination for Buyers of content (for a TV station or OTT platform) looking for content that their audiences will love.
In many cases we are the only platform to be listing content, and for some (e.g. ABS-CBN) we have on-boarded the partner’s entire catalogue.
We now also have listings with household names and Oscar winning cast members e.g. Liam Neeson, Brad Pitt, Mark Wahlberg, Ashton Kutcher and many more. I’m happy to say that the arrival of these premium titles is ahead of expectations.
Blockchain Development Progress
We have built a successful proof-of-concept prototype of the CISP (Content Industry Supply Chain) protocol on the back of winning the Singapore government’s (IMDA) National Blockchain Challenge; we have been taking this out to the industry and we’ve received a very positive reception.
