Vimond To Power RiksTV's OTT Service Content

Vimond Media Solutions announced today that RiksTV, the largest digital terrestrial television (DTT) operator in Norway, will deploy the Vimond Media Platform and associated Vimond Professional Services to distribute on-demand content to Norwegian audiences over the Internet as a supplement to regular DTT transmissions.
The RiksTV service will mark the first time a DTT operator can deliver over-the-top (OTT) content in Norway, and it will allow the operator to catch up to other cable and satellite TV operators that already offer OTT content.
RiksTV will launch a hybrid DTT- and OTT-capable set-top box to deliver high-quality supplementary content over the Internet and will use the Vimond Media Platform to manage the complex workflows for distributing live and on-demand content. Vimond Professional Services will also be provided to integrate and support the platform.
"The agreements with Vimond Media Solutions, and with other key partners, are the most important agreements made by RiksTV since launching our services in September 2007," said Christian Birkeland, CEO of RiksTV.
The advanced Vimond platform provides a comprehensive environment for managing and delivering multiformat OTT services, with full facilities for all creative, logistical, and business aspects of the operation. With its modular architecture, Vimond Media Platform offers sophisticated tools and controls for every aspect of an OTT service, from ingest and encoding through conditional access to business intelligence reporting.
"The Vimond platform will help RiksTV compete by satisfying demand for high-quality OTT content that its viewers can currently get from other services," said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions. "RiksTV can lean heavily on Vimond's strong workflow tool as it develops and expands its service."
