Platform update boosts appeal

Version 1.8 of the Vimond Platform for online video services is being launched, with new features designed to enhance capabilities for large-scale multi-language regional operation.

Together with extended language support and 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. 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. 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.

Miguel Silva, EVP for marketing and sales at Vimond, said the new features were designed to meet customer demand for a more extensive toolset with ‘great potential for growing OTT businesses’.

The Vimond Platform provides a comprehensive environment for managing and delivering multi-format, over-the-top (OTT) services, with full facilities for all creative, logistical, and business aspects of the operation, said the company.

It offers a modular architecture, with tools and controls to address every aspect of an OTT service, from ingest and encoding, through conditional access to business intelligence reporting, said Vimond.
