VCC Accelerates Multi-Screen Publishing

Vimond have announced their latest video management tool aimed at simplifying and accelerating multi-screen publishing, building on the company's robust Online Video Platform (OVP).
Vimond Media Solutions have launched the Vimond Control Center (VCC), a new and feature-rich tool for publishing workflow. Designed for broadcasters and distributors it will monetize their content directly to end users, and for content distributors seeking to broaden their offering and provide catch-up services.
"We designed VCC to address critical issues facing today's content owners," said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions. "VCC is different from other OVP solutions because it focuses on multiscreen deployment, over-the-top (OTT) production workflow, speed, and integration. We've added powerful features that speak to these challenges and easily make VCC the most complete online TV tool on the market today."
One of those features is a self-service component that enables OTT service providers to attract a large pool of content contributors by giving them restricted access to their accounts. The content contributors log in to the provider's VCC installation, create their own channels, and upload their own video to be distributed over the provider's Vimond platform. At that point an administrator on the service-provider side approves the content before it is published. This approval workflow gives the provider greater moneymaking potential with little effort.
Using this feature, providers can create a single service with a unified look and feel through which they publish content from multiple sources; or allow content owners to create their own branded channels, which get published via the provider's Vimond platform.
"With the VCC, there are no limits to the kind of service providers can build," Høibraaten said. "VCC makes it easier to create more avenues for revenue for both providers and contributors, so everybody wins."
VCC boasts other significant features including the ability to publish compelling TV services across all screens without the need for add-on functionality or products, as well as tagging functionality that simplifies the process of managing hundreds of hours of content. Content is easily found through an intelligent search, with adaptive filtering, and in as few clicks as possible. VCC also accelerates OTT production by breaking the various production elements down into manageable workflows, which can be customized depending on the need. Finally, VCC integrates with the major encoder and transcoder solutions, enabling automation of live and on-demand video ingestion. Industry-leading solutions from Digital Rapids and Harmonic are controlled directly from the VCC system, eliminating the need to start and stop encoders manually.
VCC operates on the advanced Vimond platform, which 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 offers sophisticated tools and controls for every aspect of an OTT service, from ingest and encoding, through conditional access to business intelligence reporting.
Vimond will showcase a beta version of the new VCC platform at IBC2012 on stand 14.B10.
