New Products for the CABSAT Show
NEW** Vimond Connect
Receiving its worldwide debut at CABSAT 2016, Vimond Connect provides an exciting new way for viewers to socialize while watching on-demand video content. Viewers can comment on the content as they watch, but the comments are anchored to the exact moment in the video when they were posted, allowing the comments to be seen at the same point by VOD viewers watching later. This enables a spoiler-free conversation around television content between viewers watching at different times, with a spontaneous social experience.
Vimond Connect is about relationships, about creating and maintaining the social aspect when it comes to television. Because the communication is tied to the triggering events in the video, the users can easily find all commenters that are interested in that specific event, making it easier to interact with people with the same interests.
NEW** Vimond Highlights 1.7
Vimond Highlights streamlines live-to-VOD conversion, for rapid short-form clip production and distribution to social media. With the support of very light-weight software, broadcasters are able to leverage existing infrastructures, yet gain tremendous speed in clip production. At CABSAT, Vimond will show Highlights 1.7, with new features including support for Chrome with MPEG-Dash, the ability to update already-created clips, and many stability enhancements.
NEW** Vimond Platform 1.8
The Vimond Platform 1.8 includes powerful new features designed to enhance capabilities for global operation, including multi-tenancy, increased support for multi-language services, easy integration of multiple CDNs into primary and fallback configurations, and the ability to populate multiple sites from the same content store, to target differentiated audiences. Multi-publishing support lets content aggregator sites allow individual content contributors to curate their own content, and the Flagging feature lets viewers notify multi-contributor Platform operators in case of sub-standard content.
NEW features** Vimond Control Center
New for CABSAT 2016, the VCC adds support for plug-in modules, allowing users to build customised functionality into VCC with external tools and services using its powerful APIs. New wizard makes setting up live streams (including externally hosted streams) even easier and quicker, and new metadata capabilities allow dynamic configurable metadata schemes that streamline the management of massive content volumes.
