IBM recently scored deals with Comic-Con HQ, Canadian Broadcasting, AOL and Broadway Video to launch new channels and improve video management through its new Cloud Video unit. The unit was created following IBM’s acquisition of cloud video firm ClearLeap. As part of the Comic-Con contract, the Comic-Con HQ video channel is set to debut May 7, using IBM’s Clearleap platform to offer SVOD service. IBM will also provide subscriber and content management, billing and video compatibility services across platforms. Under the deal with AOL, IBM has helped deploy high-speed transfer and automation software to serve as the backbone of AOL’s new media management platform.
