VANCOUVER, British Columbia – SoMedia Networks (TSX-V:VID) (“SoMedia,” “the Company”), the pioneer of globally scalable cloud-based video production solutions, is pleased to introduce SoMedia Enterprise, its large-scale video production platform. SoMedia Enterprise is the first video production platform that offers large digital agencies and media companies affordable access to on demand video production services in unlimited volume anywhere in North America.
“SoMedia’s pricing and product provide our clients with an affordable, convenient option for including videos in their marketing mix.”

- Order turnkey B2B and news video production services in standardized cost effective formats at unlimited volume

“SoMedia Enterprise provides us with the opportunity to offer our proven video production technology and processes to a new market – large media and agency partners,” stated George Fleming, SoMedia’s CEO. “Demand for video content continues to accelerate, but the production of video is still a cumbersome, hands-on creative process. For large agencies and media companies the lack of scalability in video production has become a huge and expensive logistical problem. SoMedia Enterprise allows these companies to both access our low cost, low risk production services and simultaneously manage multiple projects across multiple locations. By using SoMedia Enterprise, our partners can avoid the complex logistics associated with video production, improve the turnaround time of their projects, and decrease their associated costs by an average of 50% – all without the need for any technical expertise.”
“We’re continuously looking to align ourselves with service providers that offer high-quality product at the best prices. SoMedia has clearly established itself as a provider of this caliber,” stated Stephen McDonald, CFO at VFM Leonardo Inc.
“We chose SoMedia as our partner for their robust solution and online self-serve interface,” stated Paul Kraemer, Director of Strategic Planning at DAC Group. “SoMedia’s pricing and product provide our clients with an affordable, convenient option for including videos in their marketing mix.”
Through SoMedia’s Scalable Video platform, video production is now a standardized, technology-driven business product readily available to web service providers, brands, the media, web marketing specialists, and digital agencies.
