Rapidly cut and edit live or live linear video using Zype + Wildmoka
At Zype, we provide our customers with the best cloud-based tools to manage and deliver quality video content across the OTT ecosystem. Our recent acquisition by Backlight has enabled us to offer our customers access to complementary technologies within Backlight’s portfolio of award-winning video-centric software businesses that improve the efficiency and functionality of their video workflows.
We’ve recently integrated with Wildmoka, a fellow Backlight business. Wildmoka is a leading SaaS platform for the creation of live and near-live content in Sports, News and Entertainment, used by top media companies including NBC, Fox, Sky, Sinclair, Canal+, BeinSports and Altice. The Zype + Wildmoka integration allows Zype customers to leverage a toolset for video editing and clipping so they can get greater value out of their Zype-distributed video content. We’re talking about scaling the creation of additional video clips, highlight reels, graphic overlays, sponsor logo inclusions and more!
