Louis Hernandez Jr. starts a new media technology company

At NAB 2019 Louis Hernandez Jr. of Black Dragon Capital, a growth-oriented private equity fund focused on technology investment opportunities in industries disrupted by digitization, announced the launch of Digital Joy, a new Cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) media technology company that holds the potential to revolutionize the way news organizations produce and distribute content.

Digital Joy's product suite offers unique and previously unavailable advanced technologies developed together with the most advanced media organizations and recognized media professionals. The product suite has been hardened by an intense live operating environment to ensure its scalability and reliability before making these products available to the general market.  

Digital Joy's suite is a legacy free, cloud-based, open API architected, technology already deployed in one of the largest media organizations in the world and supports all major formats, content types and distribution devices. Digital Joy combines the most advanced and proven Cloud-based media technology with unmatched service and client friendly commercial terms to the industry to solve the most important issues it faces. This includes higher standards for service, private, hybrid and public Cloud deployment options with subscription-based contracts.   

"This is game-changing technology that holds the potential to fundamentally change the way news organizations create and distribute content," says Louis Hernandez Jr., founder of Digital Joy and CEO of Black Dragon Capital. "This legacy free, Cloud-based, open API system is already deployed in one of the largest and most advanced media companies in the market today. We'll be demonstrating this new platform for the first time at NAB, and we have every expectation that Digital Joy will lead the industry for years to come."

Digital Joy was created to help leading media and business organizations meet their strategic media technology needs by giving them access to a new, Cloud-based end-to-end digital news production and distribution platform — and a next-generation OTT platform — that enables subscription, transactional and ad-supported services.   

Digital Joy's product suite offers:

  • Previously unavailable advanced technologies developed with the most innovative media organizations and professionals 
  • A proven platform already operating in an intense live operating environment to ensure scalability and reliability 
  • A legacy-free, Cloud-based, open API technology platform that is already deployed in one of the largest and most advanced media companies in the market today 
  • Unmatched service and client friendly commercial terms, including high standards for service, private, hybrid and full cloud deployment options with flexible subscription-based contracts.

Digital Joy's OTT Platform will support a wide range of distribution channels and devices in an easy to deploy and use integrated platform.  This cloud-based system enables all subscription, transaction, product and ad-supported services to allow media organizations to quickly and easily offer a unique, simple and competitive OTT environment.  Designed with modularity and flexibility, the technology is already deployed in one of the largest media organizations in the world and supports all major formats, content types and distribution devices.  

Exclusive Demos at NAB

Digital Joy will make its debut at the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas, the ultimate event for media, entertainment and technology professionals looking for new and innovative ways to create, manage and deliver media content. Private demos of the new technology will be available at NAB (April 6-11) on an invitation only basis.

"There's no better place to announce Digital Joy and its innovative technology than at NAB, where top industry leaders connect to learn about the most advanced platforms and technology," said Mohamed Abuagla, former CIO and CTO of Al Jazeera Media Network, and a member of the launch team at Digital Joy. "This new system will upend conventional approaches to news generation and storytelling in myriad ways. We have every expectation that Digital Joy becomes industry standard for any news organization that wants to stay on the leading edge." (4/19)
