Sony DADC Media Solutions has selected Critical Mass Studios software as a service (SAAS) subsidiary Rightsline to power rights management on its new Ven•ue service for creating OTT video channels.

Ven•ue will also deploy Ooyala’s multi-device video streaming capabilities and analytics.

“We are thrilled to be working with Sony’s DADC and Ooyala to offer content owners of all sizes and types access to their own OTT platforms,” said Critical Mass CEO David Straus (pictured at left).

“Our vision continues to deploy enterprise technology solutions to both the largest libraries in the world and then make that same solution available to mid-size and individual content creators.”

Straus and fellow Withoutabox co-founders Joe Neulight and Fred Kramer launched Los Angeles-based Critical Mass Studios last June after acquiring rights tracker Rob Delf’s (pictured at right) RightslineSoftware.
