Norway’s C More to extend usage of Vimond streaming

Nordic pay TV provider C More will extend its deployment of the Vimond streaming platform to deliver content to Filmnet, a new distributor of C More Film. Part of the Swedish TV4 Group, C More already uses Vimond to power online web TV services C More and C Sports.

Filmnet is built on the Ruby on Rails open-source Web framework and launches with a new Silverlight player framework built by Vimond. The player has features including an episode chooser, clip info, language chooser for viewing and subtitling, and a streaming-quality monitor.

The Vimond platform facilitates the management and delivery of multiformat over-the-top (OTT) services, with full facilities for all creative, logistical and business aspects of the operation.

Jan Rizvi, head of IT development at TV4, comments: “Filmnet will enable us to offer films and TV series to a rapidly growing market, helping us to secure greater market share and giving our audience greater TV experiences. Together with Vimond Media Solutions, we are able to keep pace with end users’ expectations. Vimond’s advanced knowledge of how to use technologies such as Smooth Streaming, Flash HTTP, Dynamic Streaming, and HLS ensures great video quality across all screens.”

Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions, adds: “We’ve been working with TV4 and C More on other solutions for years, and now we’re excited to be part of this new project to help the companies break new ground in the pan-Nordic area. Working with our customers to create superior services in their market is a key motivation for us at Vimond.”
