Vistex Delivers Rights Management for ComediHA!, Gusto (SCN)

Vistex has added a host of new customers to cpRights, its disruptive cloud contract management app. “Distributors are being more inventive with how they offer exclusivity, Tom Royds, Account Manager, TV/Film at Vistex shared. “Our recent wave of signings demonstrates cpRights capabilities – putting content owners in the driving seat when it comes to negotiating deals with broadcasters, streamers and indies.”

Canada-based ComediHa! and Gusto Worldwide Media have chosen Vistex contract management software cpRights to stay on top of deals with broadcasters and VOD platforms. Joining recent signings Koan and Gunpowder and Sky, cpRights ensures content owners stay on top of complicated holdbacks and expiring term dates, giving them tools to send avails to buyers, as well as handling royalties associated with each program sale.

Alexandre Avon, Head of Distribution at global content producer and distributor ComediHa! said: “Comediha!’s productions are distributed in over 130 territories, so it’s absolutely essential that we have a dedicated system to track individual agreements and rights across all our catalogue. cpRights ensures that we have a configurable, easy solution to manage all our program sales.”

Royds added, “Vistex is excited to be showcasing our latest TV & Film solutions at MIPCOM – technology that gives buyers and sellers a complete overview on rights, availabilities, contracts, invoicing, licensing, revenue recognition, royalties and workflow management.”
