Vimond Media Solutions and Mjoll team up to provide OTT metadata enrichment

BERGEN, Norway, September 2, 2022 - Vimond Media Solutions, the world’s leading provider of streaming and video content management software for the media and entertainment industry announces its partnership with Mjoll to provide powerful video collaboration and production tools, and AI metadata enrichment for OTT assets.

​​Mimir is a cloud-native video collaboration tool where users can access and find content independently of its location. Artificial intelligence (AI)-assisted automatic metadata logging combined with a powerful search tool reduces the time needed to find the required content for editing projects.

Production companies, broadcasters, digital agencies, schools, organisations and companies worldwide use Mimir for transitioning to the cloud for their media asset management and production workflows, including live video production. Mimir customers chose their preferred infrastructure for Mimir from on-premise to a hybrid setup and a 100% cloud setup.

Where the production workflows end, content must be distributed to a CMS for playback to global OTT audiences, and that is where Vimond VIA workflows begin. By integrating Mimir into the VIA video CMS, we can streamline the digital distribution of broadcast content, from MAM to CMS - all the way to the consumers.

As well as making the transport of content from production to distribution systems quick and easy, the integration between Vimond VIA and Mjoll´s Mimir puts the powerful capabilities of Mimir in the hands of editorial teams and Vimond VIA users creating OTT services and digital channels.

Metadata can be automatically enriched to increase the reach of your content with speech-to-text, multi-language translations, facial recognition and more, so that content can be more easily and efficiently searched, indexed, categorised, sorted and automatically curated into compelling promotional carousels and content lists for your viewer facing applications.   

By integrating Vimond VIA to Mimir, we can utilize the content from Mimir into our own CMS and ensure that also the OTT assets contain the same metadata and information as the ones for traditional broadcast. This saves time and ensures consistency between the OTT and broadcast assets. It further largely improves the way Vimond VIA can present the OTT assets to any kind of application that connects to our CMS. For all of those attending IBC this year, we welcome everyone to come by our stand and have a look at how it works, says Fredrik Gunnestad, CEO of Vimond.

Vimond is located in hall 5, stand H.60.

With the tight integration to the Vimond VIA platform, our customer can now streamline their entire production from assets management and live video production with Mimir to OTT production, services and digital platforms with Vimond. Both Mimir and Vimond VIA are excellent tools for broadcasters to transition to modern workflows and cloud production, says Kristian Kim Eikeland, VP of Sales in Mjoll.

Mjoll is located in hall 7, stand 7.A45.
