Migration Process and Expected Timeline

Migration Process and Expected Timeline


The following outlines the process for migrating and redistributing a catalog through Calientalo Media:

  1. Importing Catalog into Calientalo Media
  2. Catalog ingestion into Calientalo Media is complete and valid. Notable issues can be:
    • Incomplete publishing metadata
    • Older asset files not up to the current DSP requirements (for example, artwork must be, at min., 1400×1400, but 3000×3000 is highly recommended)
    • Lack of Spotify & Apple artist IDs — these are crucial in ensuring successful track-linking, and in cases where a Calientalo Media Spotify deal is used, or you are in Spotify’s Preferred Provider Program (PPP), these IDs are required
    • Communication of any territorial restrictions
    • Communication of any DSP restrictions
    • Communication of any non-default pricing for download DSPs
  3. Calientalo Mediadistributes the catalog in batch to stores
  4. Calientalo Media monitors the delivery. Calientalo Media does not QA once the assets are live — this is the client’s responsibility
  5. Calientalo Media notifies the customer when it is safe to issue takedowns
  6. Client issues the takedowns from their previous distributor(s)
  7. Calientalo Media does not monitor the status of takedowns — this is the client’s responsibility


When redistributing using Calientalo Media’s DSP deals: it depends on the size of the catalog but you should always count on a minimum of 7 days because you need to give time for track linking after delivery.
