Modules 01

RL | Asset Maintenance

Properties and their relationships to each other, whether they are television programming, games, films, logos, images or music, must be pristinely managed to enable sophisticated rights management.  Asset Maintenance is a comprehensive inventory database and the entry point for property metadata in RightsLogic.

The Asset Maintenance module includes functionality to manage genres, keywords, ratings, target demographics, guild associations, languages and synopses.  It also manages metadata for contributors, evaluations, awards, premieres, related assets, related music tracks, break formats, copyrights and trademarks, chain of title and asset versions.

The Asset Maintenance module is client-customizable and each asset/property type may have a different configuration of fields.

Modules 02

RL | Rights In

Capture and manage all acquired, commissioned or original programming or IP contractual rights, financials and other deal terms.

The Rights-In module includes functionality to manage general contract identifying information, multiple contractual parties, media rights, including the user of numerous hierarchical rights trees; hard or event driven license dates, promotion rights, editing rights, exhibition rights, including the establishment of multiple windows, option rights, obligations, services and credits, payments, revenue particpations, delivery schedules, general business terms, contract versions and amendments and other metadata necessary to handle any kind of content driven or IP deal.

In addition, the module contains sophisticated search and reporting tools, including Rights Clearance and Availability reporting. 

Modules 03

RL | Rights Out

Similar to the Rights-In module, the Rights-Out module tracks and manages the entire process of licensing or distributing your properties through 3rd parties.

When using both modules, Rights-Out deals are validated against Rights-In deals so that you can't license rights you don't actually have or have already licensed.

Modules 04

RL | CRM

Manage your program sales force with seamless integration to Rights In and Rights Out deals: track prospective deal negotiations, conduct performance management and sales analytics and track financials to maximize every sales opportunity.

Finalized deal outlines created within the CRM module can be automatically outputted to the Rights In and Rights Out modules, thereby eliminating duplicate keying.

Modules 05

RL | Program Planning and Scheduling

A multi-faceted planning tool that enables Programming and Scheduling teams to plan schedules over multiple linear, non-linear and digital channels with full circle validation against rights, exhibitions and other contractual and non-contractual business rules.

The Program Planning and Scheduling module includes functionality to create both linear and non-linear schedules and has numerous efficiency tools such as bicycling, mirroring and global episode or version replacement.   It also includes reminder calendars for promotions and special events.   It is highly configurable so that different outlets may have different version priorities, break formats, daylight savings time settings, programming day hours, planning periods, day parts, programming days and validation rules.  It also includes the optional ability to create non-linear schedules from existing linear schedules. 

Modules 06
