New Functionality Increases Commercial Power of Platform
BERGEN, Norway ― 3 August 2015 ― At IBC, Vimond Media Solutions (IBC Booth 14.E26) will launch version 1.8 of the Vimond Platform for online video services, with powerful new features designed to enhance capabilities for large scale multi-language regional operation.
Together with extended language support and a highly efficient multi-lingual versioning workflow, version 1.8 includes the ability to populate multiple sites from the same content store, to target differentiated audiences.
Version 1.8’s new multi-tenancy capabilities allow Vimond Platform operators to use a single installation to power online video services for multiple clients, with secure separation between content and administration for each client. The Vimond Platform’s API facilitates any level of integration with the operator’s management system for multi-tenancy scenarios.
For increased robustness, version 1.8 offers easy integration of multiple CDNs into primary and fallback configurations, and for content aggregation, the Vimond Platform now includes support for multi-publishing, enabling individual content contributors to curate their own content. A Flagging feature lets viewers notify multi-contributor Vimond Platform operators in case of sub-standard content.
“These are some of the headline features in version 1.8, and together with the many other enhancements, they are designed to meet customer demand for a more extensive toolset with great potential for growing OTT businesses,” said Miguel Silva, EVP Marketing and Sales at Vimond. “As well as massively expanding the commercial power of the platform, these new features also make workflows simpler and increase the productivity of the system.”
The advanced Vimond Platform provides a comprehensive environment for managing and delivering multiformat over-the-top (OTT) services, with full facilities for all creative, logistical, and business aspects of the operation. With its modular architecture, Vimond offers sophisticated tools and controls for every aspect of an OTT service, from ingest and encoding, through conditional access to business intelligence reporting.
