Profile

Vimond Media Solutions is a leading enabler of unique digital video services. It is a spin-off of the Norwegian broadcaster TV 2. Our products and services have been successfully used around the world by top broadcasters, content distributors and Multiple System Operators.

Our company develops and markets the Vimond online TV Platform, a modular software suite for creating, managing and sharing unforgettable video experiences on all devices. Faster, updated and personalised, it can ease your workflow and help your team create updated services for highly demanding audiences. Vimond Highlights is a fast and powerful tool for extracting and publishing video segments from linear television feeds.

Product Description

Vimond Media Solutions can help you get to the next level in online TV with its two top products that can be used independently of each other or in combination: The Vimond Platform and Vimond Highlights. The Vimond Platform is the foundation for any video service. It allows you as an editor to control the complete flow of the service through a beautiful and intuitive interface. Vimond Highlights is a powerful tool to extract video segments from linear television feeds and publish them in all devices in record time. Three easy steps will bring immediate highlights of sports, news and entertainment to your viewers, on your service or on social media. Both the Vimond Platform and Vimond Highlights are deployed as enterprise software bundles, or as a cloud service managed by Vimond.

 

Vimond Media Platform 

With the Vimond Media Platform, you decide which tools comprise your perfect workflow and then select engines accordingly. Based on your business type, we’ll help you choose the feature sets that work on top of each engine.

 

With our solution, one can manage live/linear television feeds as well as on-demand video files, associated metadata, users, bundles, business rules, offers and promotional material to be displayed to your viewers.

 

The Vimond Platform is built around a modular service-oriented architecture, which enables a multitude of possible configurations and easy integration points. The modules are: Vimond Transcoder, Vimond Control Center, Vimond Business Center and Vimond Experience.

It is designed to have boundaries between different function sets for different customers, making it customizable by customer. It’s also totally pluggable, so you can choose the engines you need now, and plug in others later. Third-party compatibility ensures that, if you already have a system that serves the same function as one of the Vimond engines, you can simply connect the Vimond Media Platform to your existing system.

Vimond is already integrated with some third parties. For the rest, you can either use our APIs to integrate with your systems, or we can handle the integration for you using third-party APIs. The ability to integrate with third-party systems also has the added benefit of expanding an engine’s features even further.

Key features:

  • Java-based system
  • Works with almost any format and device
  • Independent engines
  • Support for wide variety of business and technical scenarios
  • Automatic and seamless workflow from one engine to the next
  • More features continually in development
  • Integration with different adaptors

 

Vimond Control Center

Prepare, manage and publish your videos or live TV feeds to any screen with Vimond Control Center! VCC is the video asset and metadata management interface of the Vimond Media Platform. This product was designed for a large amount of content contributors with granular responsibilities. Unlike other asset management systems, you can extend VCC accounts directly to your contributors with ease and control.

The Vimond Control Center (VCC) enables TV-Everywhere experiences through the most efficient, easy and powerful workflow management system- it is the content editors’ workspace, focusing on accessibility, fail-safe video ingest, effective metadata handling, and rule-based, platform-differentiated publishing. 

VCC is a new way of working. Building on the powerful Vimond Media Platform, the VCC is an intuitive system that lets content editors, product managers and customer-support staff efficiently manage their online video workflows in one unified user interface. A whole editorial desk of users may work on assets simultaneously without fearing that other users might overwrite their changes. Live and on-demand video sources are controlled from within our system - all in the same interface.

Unlike typical OVP solutions, VCC focuses on multi-screen deployment, OTT production workflow, speed and integration. We’ve added powerful features that address these challenges and easily make VCC the most complete online TV tool on the market today.

 Key features:

  • A pure HTML5 interface to ensure browser accessibility and cross-browser compatibility
  • Real-time updates for maximum confidence
  • Modular design
  • Customized workflows
  • Encoder control directly from the interface
  • Chaptering and dynamic timeline events-handling
  • Differential publishing across the screens with DRM and archiving

Because every sports fan should focus on what matters the most for them.
