Vimond Media Solutions
released new components in its Vimond Applications Suite for multi-screen web and device apps. Based on the Vimond Online TV platform, the expanded Application Suite consists of Web-app templates that broadcasters can use to develop services; client apps such as the Vimond Sports Center Application developed using Microsoft Silverlight; and apps for iOS devices (iPad and iPhone), Android, and Windows phones. The company plans to support HTML5-based Web apps in the future.
The Vimond Application Suite enables a centralized workflow that lets online media providers make services available for viewing on any IP-enabled device owned by a subscriber. After downloading the appropriate client app for each device from their device app store, subscribers can watch content from a Vimond-powered service anywhere they choose, using the same username and password to log in to the service across mobile devices, a connected TV, or a computer. The service provider's full range of content, including live TV channels, video on demand, and interactive services, can be made available to all devices from the same easy-to-use Vimond workflow.
