(Bergen, Norway--April 10, 2016) Vimond Media Solutions (NAB SU9104) unveils Vimond IO, an ultra-fast storytelling tool for editors and journalists to create video stories for online destinations, such as OTT news services or social media.
Video editing is usually a complex digital workflow requiring file editing and packaging from several departments. Based on a collaborative cloud, Vimond IO removes complexity by providing a frictionless path to online audiences.
It’s designed to provide all the editing functions needed to put broadcast-quality news items together quickly and easily using an elegant minimalist interface running in a Chrome browser. Vimond IO simplifies the journalist’s tasks, handling transcoding and streamlining multi-bitrate publishing automatically.
Teams can work in the newsroom or on-site while covering breaking stories on any compatible, connected device. Journalists can collaborate on any project, using a frame-accurate and keyboard-driven approach. All processing, preview rendering, and final rendering is handled by the IO Backend Server in real time.
Vimond IO integrates with the Vimond Platform, and offers instant automated publishing of finished content to a range of destinations, including VizRT’s VizOne, the broadcaster’s own CMS, YouTube and Facebook.
“The way news is packaged, distributed and consumed has been changing rapidly and new tools are needed to make it easy for media organisations to publish quickly and efficiently online,” said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions. “With news, rapid distribution is vital, but broadcasters care about producing good quality stories, and traditional news production environments were never designed for getting content out to multiple platforms as the events happen. Vimond IO provides an incredibly fast and versatile solution for doing just that.”
