Digital Media is the ubiquitous cornerstone connecting consumers with the content including social media elements across all sectors of human activities, private and business. There is enormous momentum on both sides of the equation; users are hungry for new content either for entertainment, education or marketing reasons while the competition is driving operators to keep investing in automation and cost effective infrastructure solutions to deliver the service.
XEF methodically selected the above mentioned companies as its portfolio start point for the reason to provide end-to-end solutions from generating the TV channels, securing the content via modern blockchain DRM and delivering the content monetized by subscription and advertising.
