Vimond Kicks Off Strategic Collaboration With Nordisk Film Across All Nordic Markets
Vimond Media Solutions announced today a strategic collaboration with Nordisk Film. As part of the multi-region, multi-year frame agreement, Vimond will provide an end-to-end managed cloud OTT-TV and video streaming service for Nordisk Film brands such as minbio.dk (also known as www.minkino.com) and the newly-launched Dansk Film Skat.
“Nordisk Film has ambitious plans in the consumer space, and we needed a partner with the flexibility and expertise to solve the complex technical issues associated with quality video services on all devices,” said Mikkel Weider, Commercial Director at Nordisk Film Direct. “It was clear to us that Vimond would get us quickly to market and allow us to scale for growth, given their experience building up TV 2 Sumo and other ground-breaking services in this region and elsewhere.”
Together with Vimond Media Platform, which allows Nordisk Film to ingest, package, distribute video assets and charge for services, Vimond is also delivering video transcoding, Content Delivery Network services, Digital Rights Management and custom-built device applications for Nordisk Film. The set-up is implemented on a cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services, which is monitored and maintained by Vimond.
“Content Providers in the Nordics and elsewhere are increasingly demanding that technology companies like Vimond provide end-to-end solutions rather than individual elements of the service. With that in mind, we have built our operational capabilities so that we can offer our robust software as a service, giving valued partners like Nordisk Film a scalable way to conceive and launch TV services across the region” said Andreas Helland, COO of Vimond.
