Vimond launches Arabic language version of the Vimond Platform
Vimond Media Solutions has launched an Arabic-language version of the Vimond Platform to meet accelerating demand from broadcasters across the middle east and north Africa. Vimond is engaged in several regional SVOD and live TV projects for premium brands in the Arabic world, including MBC and Abu Dhabi Media, with services due to go live in the coming months. A regional office in Dubai will be opened this year to provide support to Vimond customers in Arabic-speaking countries.
“Customers in the MENA region are enthusiastic about the flexibility and efficiency of the Vimond Platform, and impressed with how easy it is to use,” said Miguel Silva, EVP marketing and sales at Vimond. “We’ve always worked hard to make the system a pleasure to use, as we recognize that video Editors are users too. Regional language variants are an important part of an optimal user experience.”
The advanced 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. With its modular multi-tenant architecture, the Vimond Platform offers sophisticated tools and controls for every aspect of an OTT service, from ingest and encoding, through conditional access to business intelligence reporting.
For CABSAT 2016, Vimond will be debuting Vimond Connect, the first of a new range of products due this year and designed to enhance online media services. Vimond Connect provides an exciting new way for viewers to socialise while watching on-demand video content. Viewers can comment on the content as they watch, but the comments are anchored to the exact moment in the video when they were posted, allowing the comments to be seen at the same point by VOD viewers watching later. This enables a spoiler-free conversation around television content between viewers watching at different times, with a spontaneous social experience.
