Also, the social network service could not produce any solution for B2B yet. OPSIGATE, on the other hand, meets such need by storing the content and distributing its usage easily. Sony Professional opens the door of a new communication era. Because our OPSIGATE solution changes the processing manner of information assets completely.”

Any content previously transferred into digital media (DVD, external disc, etc.) can be incorporated in Opsigate system through file copy without any need for a conversion.
