ContentBridge (Content Bridge LLC) is a supply chain management (SCM), digital rights management (DRM), and encoding software provider for the entertainment industry.[1]

ContentBridge software was designed and developed for the film, recorded music and music publishing sectors.[2] Content Bridge LLC was launched as a GDMG subsidiary entity in 2010, introduced as " Software as a service" (SaaS) in 2011, and signed an exclusive supply-chain management deal with GoDigital in July 2012.[3] ContentBridge 2.0 Beta was unveiled in May 2013 and announced plans for a multicloud distribution solution using Equinix, Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA), in April 2016.[4]

The software can be divided into components for adaptability to split-rights situations[1] and for different deliverable and receivable requirements, such as language localization, media content formats|, date-sensitive release coordination (Windowing) and royalty accounting.[2][5] Both WYSIWYG web-interface and Application programming interface (API) versions are available.[6] Approved encoding relationships include iTunes, Vudu, Dish Network, PlayStation Store, Comcast, and iN DEMAND.[7]
