mediapeers GmbH is a media services company with a network of over 400 partners worldwide.

Description

mediapeers launched a global B2B online marketplace for audiovisual content in January 2008.[1] The mediapeers exchange (MPX) supports content trading from end-to-end:

  • Marketing,
  • Sales/Contracting,
  • Payment, and
  • Delivery.

The mediapeers exchange allows owners and distributors of audiovisual content to manage, showcase, license, distribute and bill their programs to professional buyers worldwide, including TV channels, home video distributors, cable operators, VoD services, airlines, web sites and publishing houses.

The aim of the platform is to simplify market access for content owners and help buyers discover and license content more efficiently and effectively. The exchange reduces transaction costs and simplifies cooperation between content owners and professional buyers.

Professional content buyers and sellers can register on the platform free of charge and upload or view content, trailers and images. Buyers can then bid on any content they wish to purchase and then the seller has the option to deny or accept the offer or suggest alternative terms. mediapeers' business model is success based and therefore when a deal is in place between a buyer and seller mediapeers takes a commission.
