History and Growth of Media Distribution Services – a Multi-Part Series Part 2-Featuring: Juice Worldwide

Flash back and rewind to the concluding theme in Part 1 of the series:
Media Distribution Services grew to serve greater demand for QC, language versioning, captioning for both hearing and visually impaired audiences and add to net and cloud delivery of all forms of TV Programming: Series, Specials, Documentaries, Features are adopted and incorporated by Content Distribution firms located in Toronto who specialize in delivery all over the world.

Part 2-Featuring: Juice Worldwide.
In 2004, CEO and Visionary Andrew Buck founded Juice World-Wide with his partner and Co-Founder, Mark Chandler (Chief Operating Officer).

Juice quickly grew to become one of the world’s premier OTT certified encoding houses and digital delivery agents. They became a leading distributor of OTT content and one of just a few encoding houses who have attained “preferred” vendor status from both Apple and Netflix. When Juice was founded their primary revenue stream was DVD authoring. By 2007, observing the iTunes TV On Demand model operating in the US and realizing there was a potential fit for Canadian content distributors Juice was working with, Juice reached out to Apple. That strategy worked out and Juice quickly became a preferred vendor for Apple, Netflix, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and all of the other major international OTT platforms.

The service offering from Juice breaks into 3 main components: (1) Lab Services; encoding, digital asset management, post production, DVD/BD authoring, standards conversion, closed captioning, subtitling and more. (2) Distribution and Content Licensing (3) Creative Services
This is Andrew’s take on the value proposition offered by Juice to its’ clients (whether studios, production companies or independent producers)
“Film and TV content is on-boarded into a cloud based ecosystem after undergoing a stringent QC process. Beyond that we also on-board supplementary assets like: conformed audio dubs; timed text; metadata; artwork; trailers; rights tracking software etc.” Once Juice has the master files loaded into their digital asset management system, the content can be packaged for distribution to over 750 international platform endpoints including OTT, Cable, Satellite and Telcos.

A short Near Term History
In 2012, Juice added more to their value proposition via content licensing. If a producer of record was a content owner who could license to iTunes directly but not Amazon or Google, Juice filled those holes to get the content owner the comprehensive platform coverage they needed to exploit titles.
In 2015 Juice was acquired by Vubiquity and added Cable, Satellite and Telco (while adding MVPD platform licensing and distribution to their portfolio of services). In 2018, Vubiquity was in turn acquired by Amdocs.
The Near Term Plan: Juice now operates a combined network of 1,500 content providers with service to over 750 platforms. It continues to add platforms and content owners to its’ stable, expanding reach and capacity while focusing on tool sets and increased automation.

The Long Term Plan: Juice is an active participant in advanced media like HDR/4K. They are building new business units to support the growing needs of the major OTT platforms. They are evolving along with the changing landscape and will continue to be an early participant/adopter for new formats and strategies to better service platform partners and content owners on an international scale.
Juice continues to provide top-notch service and provides a results-focused white glove experience to their clients.
