We are delighted to announce the new version of Vimond.com, designed in partnership with the Bergen-based web design firm Cure.
Something Vimond says all the time, whether it's at trade shows or on our website, is some variation of "we were born in TV2 - Norway's largest commercial broadcaster."
The reason why that has been so repetitive in our idiolect is because it's such a fundamental part of our story. In 1997, a group of editors and journalists in TV2 saw an early opportunity to host videos online as a contingency plan to not having their broadcasting license renewed in 2002. The search to find a partner to build the product came up dry and TV2's online platform was built - although the broadcasting license was ultimately renewed. In the past two and a half decades it's evolved and, after realizing it's something others would benefit from as much as TV2 had, Vimond was created.
