Partnership Agreement Secures Massive Content Offering to Global Affiliate Broadcaster Market

BEIJING, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inception Digital, a global leader in content management and electronic distribution, together with content syndication and streaming company, Spondo, announced today that they have signed an agreement in which Inception will provide Spondo with all manner of top-tier content, TV shows, videos and music videos.

Spondo's platform allows anyone with a website to become a broadcaster, curating 'Spotify-like' playlists of videos which speak to their audiences. The Spondo platform facilitates bloggers, clubs, schools, charities, SMEs and anyone who has amassed a community of users/members and fans to whom they wish to offer interesting and relevant content to.

Spondo shares revenue with all parties; 50% to content owners, 25% to the affiliate/distributor and 25% for Spondo.

Spondo launched in 2012 the live-stream of the head-to-head one-day golf match between Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy from China (with News Digital and www.golf.com.au as distributors) and has recently launched the dedicated Children's Channel, www.123tv.com.au (a partnership with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Starlight Children's Foundation Australia).

Inception Digital was founded to address the bottle-neck in the online video space with regards to digitization, provisioning and electronic distribution. Inception is now the leading provider of core digital services to iTunes, Amazon, Comcast Cable & Interactive, Netflix, Quikflix, Hulu and nearly 100 other platforms. With a global footprint and access to the world's best content from the world's biggest studios, networks, publishers and producers, Inception dominates this space.

Spondo's Director Chris Adams said, "Working with Inception Media is a game-changer for us. Spondo has now established a significant volume of content which will exponentially scale our platform's offering to affiliates, distributors and communities of all kinds."

Erik Pence, Inception's Founder and President, added, "Spondo's platform and business model are at the heart of where the online video space is going and needs to be. Content publishers and audiences can now connect directly - this is massively disruptive and we believe it's the wave of the future."

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
