Vimond And Unified Streaming Partner For Dynamic Remuxing

Vimond Media Solutions has united with Amsterdam-based Unified Streaming to bring the benefits of the Unified Streaming Platform (USP) to Vimond customers.
Unified Streaming's cross-platform video-streaming technology dynamically remuxes different video streams to different platforms, significantly lowering the number of different formats needed and making it possible for Vimond customers to stream high-quality video with no buffering and no waiting.
"Unified Streaming Platform technology is innovative and helps us target multiple devices from a single source — even with DRM," said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions. "This partnership enables our customers to have an even broader device reach without having to transcode or encode to all the different format variations out there, which in turn will help reduce storage costs."
USP allows Vimond customers to stream media content from one unified source to multiple clients and devices. It wraps the platform-specific solutions available from Adobe® (HTTP Dynamic Streaming), Apple® (HTTP Live Streaming), Microsoft® (Smooth Streaming), and MPEG-DASH into one. USP software running on the customer's existing Web server dynamically wraps the content to the required formats for delivery. The module does not do any transcoding, but instead transmuxes — changes the container format — to the format used by the adaptive streaming format (MPEG-TS, fragmented-MP4, DASH). It also generates the different manifest/playlists formats used (.m3u8, .ismc, .f4m).
"We decided to partner with Vimond because it was clear from the beginning that Vimond shares our passion for enabling customers to deliver great end-user experiences through the Vimond Media Platform," said Dirk Griffioen, CodeShop CEO and co-founder. "The features of CodeShop's Unified Streaming Platform combined with Vimond's distribution engine give customers a powerful, high-performance, ready-for-the future video-streaming solution."
The advanced Vimond platform provides a comprehensive environment for managing and delivering multiformat over-the-top (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. The Vimond platform includes a variety of modules, such as VimondMONETIZE, which provides control over access to premium content, setup of payment, and access rules; VimondSCHEDULE, which provides scheduled management of asset and metadata capture from live sources, with interfaces to major scheduling systems; and VimondPORTAL, which provides a multiplatform presentation engine for creating an on-screen end-user environment.
