The Vimond Highlights Live-to-VOD clip extraction system won a Best of Show award from Broadcast Beat magazine at IBC 2015, in the Content Delivery category.
One of the most user-friendly and time-saving tools on the market, Vimond Highlights streamlines live-to-VOD conversion, for rapid short-form clip production and distribution to social media. Using Vimond Highlights' software, broadcasters are able to leverage existing infrastructures, yet gain tremendous speed in clip production.
Vimond Highlights really does have a profound effect on the workflow for creating clips and getting them online within minutes of the live event, said Miguel Silva, EVP Marketing and Sales at Vimond Media Solutions. Rapid deployment of topical material is vital for capturing audience attention, and any delay can dramatically reduce the impact a clip will have. Were very happy that Highlights has been recognised for its innovation and value in multiple awards since its launch.
Vimond Highlights allows TV editors to access a live TV broadcast and create clips in a responsive web interface connected to the Vimond Highlights server, with frame-accurate scrubbing and editing, and editor-friendly keyboard shortcut controls. Users can create DVR windows for up to three hours stream recording per window, for subsequent clip editing. Multiple DVR windows can be set up, and can record and create assets automatically through the API, using structured metadata or information from an EPG.
Available as a SaaS or installed on-site, Vimond Highlights offers native support for MPEG-Dash, HLS, Smooth Streaming and RTMP formats, accepts multi-bitrate source streams, and can ingest streams encrypted with any of the AES-128 based DRM technologies.
Vimond Highlights is in use by broadcasters for high-profile clip publishing for major sports and news coverage. Broadcast users include TV 2 (Winter and Summer Olympics), TV 4 (Winter Olympics), NRK (World Cup), DR (X Factor), and Reuters TV (Reuters TV News).
