Whip Media Launches Exchange for Global Content Rights

Whip Media has beta launched Whip Media Exchange, a data and AI-powered content marketplace that connects buyers and sellers in a centralized platform to streamline discovering, buying and selling global content rights.

Using proprietary first-party data, the Exchange drives more intelligent licensing decisions through a new set of predictive analytics not previously available to the entertainment industry, according to Whip Media.

“The Exchange transforms the global film and TV buying and selling process to one where data and AI drive the experience and streamline content discovery, selection, and transactions,” Richard Rosenblatt, CEO and founder of Whip Media, said in a statement. “Streaming has drastically changed the media landscape and we want to enable licensing to follow the same growth trend. With the launch of the Exchange, Whip Media uniquely provides data and technology to meet the evolving needs of buyers and sellers, along with the industry-leading platform that facilitates the entire content licensing process.”
