NAB 2013: Vizrt, Vimond Collaborate on OTT Technology
Vizrt and Vimond Media Solutions are working together to bring powerful over-the-top TV technology to the media industry. At NAB 2013, Vizrt will display how the technology gives broadcasters complete control of their video content across platforms while providing the audience a compelling multiscreen experience.
Vimond’s over-the-top TV technology provides an automated workflow for publishing video online as well as a powerful player that broadcasters can use to control and monetize their content. Video is streamed using a variety of formats ensuring the user has the best possible viewing experience.
Together with the Vizrt Online Suite – Vizrt’s high performance content management platform – Vimond’s over-the-top TV toolset integrates to create a complete platform for journalists and broadcasters to control all their online assets with a powerful engine that maintains the online presence and the presence across all platforms.
In the Vizrt Online Suite’s content management system, Escenic Content Studio, the journalists create stories, edit graphics and maps as well as access all their video content through the Viz Media Engine, Vizrt’s media asset management system. The videos are then transcoded in multiple formats with the graphics either burned in or added live while streaming. The Vimond video player and control system handles the distribution and the end user’s interaction with the online content.
Håvard Myklebust, SVP Products and Marketing, Vizrt states, “With the addition of Vimond’s technology, Vizrt stands now as the leader in the online content management world. No other platform combines the ability to merge graphics and video with a comprehensive journalist tool to create imaginative and informative online content while also providing a fantastic user experience on any platform.”
“Our partnership with Vizrt is all about enabling broadcasters to have an efficient and combined workflow for broadcast and TV Everywhere, making sure that video, graphics and metadata give the end viewers a rich and immediate experience on all screens” adds Helge Høibraaten, Vimond CEO. “Add this to our rich choice of monetization models, and the combined experience of our two companies, and you get what I believe to be truly a unique offer for broadcasters seeking to elevate their success in TV Everywhere and OTT.”
Vizrt will be at Vizrt South lower hall SL3305. Vimond will display the combined workflow at booth SL10310.
