LOS ANGELES and OULU, Finland, March 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), the premier independent streaming entertainment company super-serving enthusiast audiences, today announced an agreement with Valossa Labs OY as its video Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology partner and vendor for its flagship streaming service Cineverse.
This partnership enhances the user experience for Cineverse by utilizing Valossa’s human-level cognitive automation systems. Valossa Autopreview™ is a fully automated promotion engine that creates a more dynamic content experience and drives deeper viewer engagement across Cineverse’s library of over 20,000 video titles, among the largest free streaming libraries currently available.

The benefits of this technology are immense from a content programming, content discovery and targeted advertising perspective.
