Veset Launches Prosumer Cloud Playout Platform

News Image
At IBC2017 last month, Veset demonstrated its latest range of solutions, including the new Veset Cirrus prosumer cloud playout platform for OTT providers and the Veset Nimbus-enabled scalable 4K playout solution.

Veset Cirrus was developed to address the needs of OTT providers looking to enable their non-traditional content owners, such as niche sport, music and general entertainment producers, to create linear TV channels with a quick and easy playout experience.

Veset Cirrus enables channel creators and owners to self-manage their content without facing the complexity of traditional broadcast playout systems. The end product is a professional-looking channel combining live streaming and pre-recorded content with simple broadcast graphics.

Drag-and-drop and looping playlist capabilities take the hassle out of traditionally cumbersome and time-consuming channel management processes.

Gatis Gailis, Founder and CTO of Veset, said: "With the democratisation of video creation and distribution through social networks we believe there is an important place for a new way of launching and managing 24⁄7 channels to be distributed via OTT. What's needed is a very simple platform for those 'prosumers', i.e. creatives who have neither the expertise nor the resources to manage complex and costly broadcast structures but who nevertheless need to run their 24⁄7 channels to professional standards."

Veset Cirrus will be integrated into Freedocast Live Streaming Platform by YuppTV. This recently launched platform is designed as a one-stop-solution providing cloud transcoding and adaptive bitrate streaming for best viewing experience in low bandwidths, real-time analytics, viewer interactivity with chat moderation, ad-integration, pay-per-view, geo-blocking & password protection for control of events.

Also on display at IBC Show 2017 was Veset Nimbus 4K true cloud playout which delivers high-quality H.265 50 fps ultra high definition (UHD) channels based on scalable and flexible SaaS solutions.

Veset Nimbus is deployable on AWS, other public clouds and also as an edge solution, depending on customers priorities and distribution preferences.

Igor Krol, CEO, said: "The costs and capital investment risks associated with 4K channel creation and distribution has deterred growth in the market despite the growing availability of content. With our H.265-based solution, Veset Nimbus kills two birds with one stone: we provide an opportunity to create new channels in ultra high definition while removing the risks based on significant investments alongside unproven business concepts. Our playout solution can deliver 4K ranging from basic 25fps YouTube channels to a fully-fledged 50fps feed distributed to satellite DTH."
