BERGEN, Norway -- Sept. 3, 2013 -- Vimond Media Solutions today announced a collection of licensed development frameworks that enable Vimond customers to build great end-user experiences for smartphones, tablets, Macs(R), PCs, set-top boxes, and more. The frameworks, which are implemented on Vimond APIs, are built specifically so that a broad variety of portals can take advantage of the feature-rich Vimond Platform. Each framework acts as a layer between an API and a portal, tying everything together for a rich viewer experience in a shorter time to market.
"The process of building a service with APIs usually takes months, but most of our customers don't want to wait that long to take an online video service to market. With our open application frameworks, they don't have to," said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond Media Solutions. "The frameworks ensure our customers can build their own services quickly that will work on any browser or device, and at the same time provide advanced Web technologies that allow for sophisticated features."
Vimond application frameworks give Vimond customers full control over their portal development for iOS and Android(TM) devices, the Web, connected TVs, and other screens without the need for in-depth knowledge of Vimond's APIs.
The frameworks enable development on the Vimond Platform, a feature-rich, powerful, modular online TV platform that enables high-performance, high-quality multiscreen offerings. Vimond's flexible approach to online video distribution lets customers choose the product packages that are most relevant to their businesses and then customize them by end user. The Platform is also totally modular, so broadcasters and other content providers can choose the parts they need now and plug in others later.
Vimond will demonstrate the application development frameworks at IBC2013 on stand 14.B10. Further information on Vimond Media Solutions and its products is available at www.vimond.com or by phone at +47 97602236.
