Content & Catalogue
Blue Vault Digital operates a digital platform for the delivery of digital content including music, video, games and TV. Please click here to download the latest PDF brochure on our content.
Blue Vault Digital enables our clients to operate a stand-alone digital entertainment store that is completely brand orientated to suit our client’s specific needs. We provide mobile, streaming and digital download branded music stores.
Global content for global brands:
Through our digital aggregators, Blue Pie, we have been able to obtain in excess of ten million tracks for sale through our store. As our digital footprint increases so does our content library. Ingestion of content is constant; as such we grow our catalogue exponentially by more than 20% per annum.
With the launch of global branded stores, local content is part of our focus to ensure cultural fit and uptake of this new service by the associated brand. As such we go out of our way to ensure that we have the best local catalogues to enhance our international catalogue.
With our major label partners, we are able to license another five million tracks for any major brand of large-scale music store deployment. Major label content will require advances to be paid.
Who do we license our catalogue to?
To extend our client’s brand by creating ringtones, real tones, mobile video clips, video games, contests and promotions for new revenue opportunities.
To create interactive marketing and advertising campaigns using entertainment content to increase the return on investment and develop greater direct relationships with their target customer. Content often includes digital coupons, branded entertainment and mobile contests, polls and games.
Clubs and organisations (sports, associations):
To develop stronger relationships and interactivity with fans and club sponsors with mobile subscription offers and access to mobile content such as logos, real-time game scores, news and video clips.
