7digital wins new contract with short-form video-sharing platform Lomotif

Short-video platform awards 7digital two-year contract to supply music for creators

7digital (AIM: 7DIG), the global leader in B2B end-to-end digital music solutions, is pleased to announce it has won a new two-year contract with Singapore-based Lomotif, one of the top worldwide social video-sharing apps. The Company's music-as-a-service platform will provide music used in the Lomotif app globally.

Lomotif is a global short video-sharing networking platform that o ffers easy and intuitive creation, with editing and curation tools that inspire creativity and collaboration. Lomotif is majority-owned by ZVV Media Partners, LLC, a joint venture of ZASH Global Media and Entertainment Corporation and Vinco Ventures, Inc (NASDAQ: BBIG). The app differentiates itself from its competitors in the short-form video market with patented technology and easy-to-use creator tools . Lomotif has a significant presence globally spanning Asia to Latin America, and West Africa to the U.S.

The initial contract will cover licenced major label content in the app's current territories and will accommodate expansion in content from newly licenced labels as well as usage. Lomotif will stream licensed music and clips directly from 7digital's music-as-a-service platform to their end users. 7digital's platform will automatically filter for label clearances so that the app will access only their fully licensed catalogue. Lomotif will also utilise 7digital's full-service back-end label and publisher reporting solutions.

Paul Langworthy, Chief Executive Officer of 7digital, said: "As a leader in end-to-end music solutions, 7digital has supported some of the biggest social media companies in the industry throughout their tremendous growth, and it's great to add another rising social media platform to the roster. This contract also reflects the increasing transitioning of our pricing model to align revenue with usage that expands as the customer grows. We are at an exciting inflection point where our deal momentum is providing significant improvement in revenues and each new contract adds to our growing base of recurring licence fees, with contracted licensing revenue for 2022 already surpassing 2021 levels by 21%. We're thrilled to support Lomotif as they build one of the largest short-form video platforms in the world. "
