IMAGICA Corp. (“IMAGICA”: Head office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President: Yukihiro Fujikawa) is pleased to announce the release of the newly developed online platform, FOYER, which enables our customers to distribute their content globally.
With this online showcase, FOYER allows a registered content holder to upload their own content such as feature films, TV programs, animation, and documentaries to exhibit to buyers all over the world with the highest levels of security. FOYER also allows a registered buyer, agency, or licensee to search and preview uploaded content anytime, anywhere. Through FOYER, IMAGICA will contribute to a more active distribution of premium content in the global marketplace. Additionally, FOYER will provide more opportunities for Japanese content holders to sell their high-quality content, which previously has not been available to international buyers and platforms. Most importantly, international buyers can easily access a large variety of content directly via the internet. IMAGICA proudly introduces this innovative way of providing global exposure and access for both content holders and licensees.
Once a deal between content holder and buyer is agreed upon, IMAGICA can then leverage our postproduction facilities and fulfill all dubbing and subtitling localization needs in over 80 languages, including management of assets, metadata, and secure delivery of final media to anywhere in the world. Utilizing our strong relationships with key players in Japan, our customers plan to register their high-quality content with FOYER. Additionally, our strategic international base in Malaysia, IMAGICA South East Asia Sdn. Bhd., will be approaching content owners and buyers in South East Asian markets to educate them on the advantages of registering with FOYER.
IMAGICA will unveil and exhibit FOYER at the Japan Content Showcase 2015, which is affiliated with the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF). TIFF is the only film festival in Japan approved by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations. There will be influential buyers, content holders, and production companies in attendance – not only from Asia but also from all over the world. IMAGICA will be hosting demos of FOYER at our booth.
