BERGEN, Norway, August 31, 2022 –Vimond Media Solutions, the world’s leading provider of streaming and video content management software for media companies in the broadcast industry, announces its continued collaboration with Unified Streaming, a forerunner in creating smart video streaming technologies and defining industry-advancing standards and specifications.

Together the two companies have created a complete VOD2Live offering, from ingest to distribution.

VOD2Live is a quick and cost-effective way for media companies to repurpose existing assets, and to create live virtual channels with optional ad-insertion. Vimond’s best-in-class video CMS, in collaboration with Unified Remix from Unified Streaming, now offers tailored, lean-back viewing experiences via personalized virtual channels.

In combination with Unified Streaming, Vimond is able to provide customers the complete solution for creating linear experiences. Using Unified Streaming’s Remix VOD2live solution, Vimond takes a set of media assets originally prepared for VOD streaming and repurposes them into a live linear stream, which gets pushed back to Vimond’s video CMS and distributed for further playback. 

Vimond’s OTT Video CMS also boasts a strong integration with Unified Streaming’s video packaging solutions.

Vimond and Unified Streaming have been partners and delivered joint solutions for customers worldwide for a decade. We are excited to be broadening our partnership with Unified Streaming by including an integration with Remix into the Vimond VIA content management workflow. VIA and Remix combined enables efficient workflows to create virtual channels from the existing VOD assets in your catalog. By utilising Vimond VIA smart list features, we have everything you need in order to create targeted or personalised virtual channels, that also can include SSAI workflows to create new revenue streams. We are excited to present our joint solution at the IBC show floor in September, says Børre Andre Sandvik, EVP Product & Technology in Vimond.

We are quite happy to extend our partnership with Vimond to offer services that enable live linear in OTT experiences. This includes the integration of Unified Remix into Vimond VIA. Creating live channels out of VOD content now looks so easy, thanks to Vimond’s curation layer. When you want to innovate, you need to collaborate with great partners. Working with Vimond makes innovative solutions happen. We look forward to highlighting Unified Remix at IBC 2022, and showing how well it integrates with Vimond, who will be presenting a live demo of Vimond VIA at our stand #5.78B on September 9 at 2 pm, says Rochelle Morrison, Global Partners Manager at Unified Streaming.
