Vimond Live Channel Planner
Live Channel Planner makes it easy to schedule and monitor a large number of live channels. It lets you define channels, set up encoder sources and monitor inbound live feeds. It also imports EPGs (electronic program guides) to create programs, which can be viewed together with your channels in the timeline view. Furthermore, it marks programs to be saved permanently as VOD assets, or saved temporarily for catch-up TV. Lastly, it automates program scheduling, for greater efficiency and fewer errors.

Vimond Rights Manager makes managing your content rights efficient and uncomplicated. Contract managers, publishers and content managers now have an easy-to-use way to track complete content lifecycles. With Vimond Rights Manager, you can define your contracts and regions; trigger the creation of associated assets in Content Manager and ingest videos; and share contract data via export or the API. Our integrated workflow saves time and minimizes duplication and errors.

Vimond Orchestrator, our backend workflow engine, manages the flow of online video from ingest through media asset management to distribution and playout. It includes built-in support for a full range of ingest and playout formats, external systems and storage types, as well as side-loading of audio and subtitles. Vimond Orchestrator is incredibly flexible, scalable and efficient.
Vimond Content Delivery APIs
The Content Delivery APIs make it easy for client applications to search for and retrieve the metadata they need when your end users request content. Efficiently access data about assets, catalogs, curated lists and images. The advanced search engine allows content to be queried, filtered and sorted on almost any property. By scaling horizontally, large amounts of traffic can be handled, while remaining cost effective.
Vimond Monetization is our subscription manager, linking content, pricing and payment.
