BERGEN, Norway, April 20, 2022 – Vimond Media Solution AS, the world’s leading provider of streaming and video content management software, today announced that the company’s cloud-native video editing and publishing SaaS platform Vimond IO has been sold to CuttingRoom AS
Following today’s transfer of the intellectual property assets of the IO platform to CuttingRoom, the team at Vimond will now focus exclusively on its market-leading VIA OTT CMS platform.
Vimond VIA is an OTT video CMS is a video content management system solely built for streaming services to store, organize, and manage videos securely and effectively. VIA is modular, highly versatile and capable of providing streaming service operators maximum flexibility when creating appealing content experiences for their customers.
The platform is highly scalable, ensuring that OTT operators who launch with Vimond can use VIA to grow their subscriber base to the levels that Vimond’s largest customers such as Telstra and Comcast have achieved.
“Our video CMS platform and the IO cloud editor are both cloud-based SaaS platforms designed for the broadcast media market, but they are targeted at different parts of the value chain,” said Fredrik Gunnestad, CEO of Vimond.
“While we believe that both products have great growth potential, they require different go-to-market approaches and separate development tracks. Transferring the IO product out of Vimond will allow us to focus on OTT streaming, and for CuttingRoom to focus on the cloud editing space. We felt that separating the products in this way was best for us and our customers. We wanted to ensure both products received the focus they deserve.”
The team at CuttingRoom, led by Glenn Pedersen and Helge Høibraaten, will focus on expanding both the customer base and the capabilities of the IO cloud editing product, which has now been rebranded as CuttingRoom. The product is already used by many premier media and entertainment companies including Foxtel Group for its recently launched Flash news aggregation service.
