(Bergen, Norway--November 21, 2016) Vimond Media Solutions today announced that two of its products have won Streaming Media Europe Readers’ Choice Awards: Vimond Platform in the Online Video Platform category; and Vimond IO, in the Cloud Video Service category.
“We are delighted that Streaming Media readers recognized Vimond Platform and Vimond IO as proven leaders in these two areas,” said Vimond CCO Miguel Silva. “Vimond Platform allows online video service providers to get to market very quickly with new services, or to replace less efficient, existing solutions, and Vimond IO is a cloud-based video editing tool that dramatically accelerates workflow efficiency.”
Built around a modular service-oriented architecture, Vimond Platform enables video service providers to rapidly deploy and efficiently operate online services. Vimond Platform enables the management of live and linear television feeds, as well as on-demand video files, associated metadata, users, bundles, business rules, offers and promotional material. It consists of three primary applications: Vimond Control Center, an asset and metadata management interface; Vimond Business Center, which provides functionality for user management and monetization; and Vimond Experience, a suite of consumer-oriented micro-services, rich application frameworks and reference apps, and powerful video players.
Vimond IO is a cloud-based editing application that enables broadcast and online media journalists, editors and marketers to collaborate and create stories on almost any device. Readily integrated with Vimond Platform, Vimond IO delivers a full complement of editing tools, as well as real-time previews and a pool of backend services for prepping and distributing assets to selected destinations. Recently enhanced to include features and capabilities from Vimond Highlights, a live-to-VOD conversion tool, Vimond IO delivers tremendous gains in workflow efficiency, for instance, reducing clip-creation time by up to 90 percent.
This year’s eighth annual Streaming Media Europe Readers’ Choice awards competition included 381 nominees across 18 categories. Winners will be featured in the Streaming Media Europe winter magazine.
