TORONTO — Award-winning global studio Breakthrough Entertainment today announced they have transitioned to a completely cloud-based delivery system through WCPMedia Services for the delivery of their premium content to their clients; major networks and digital channels across the globe.

As a distributor and production house Breakthrough boasts a catalogue of over 40 feature films and 4000 television episodes including such popular titles as the L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables trilogy, David Rocco’s Dolce Vita and The Adventures of Napkin Man. The Toronto based studio began using WCPMedia’s cloud-based platform earlier this year to deliver content to broadcasters around the world. The company is pleased to announce it is now using WCPMedia to deliver shows each month to broadcasters on six continents.

“WCPMedia gives us a powerful edge by securely delivering our programming to our broadcasting partners via their high-speed, high-volume file transfers and media asset management system,” says Nat Abraham, Partner, President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “As soon as our files are uploaded onto the WCPMedia cloud, our customers have immediate access. It’s fast, easy and secure.”

“We can’t use a file transfer service if it doesn’t have a better than 99-percent success rate,” Abraham notes. “We have that with WCPMedia.”

Although Breakthrough primarily employs WCPMedia for file delivery, the platform also includes powerful features for media management, transcoding, media review, and marketing. As a result, it can benefit a wide variety of media companies with different requirements and applications.

Breakthrough are content production and distribution leaders, and therefore we are proud to be supporting their leadership as well in secure cloud based delivery and asset management in the evolving broadcast landscape”.
