Vimond Media Solutions has announced that Nordic pay-TV provider C More will extend its deployments of the Vimond streaming platform to deliver content to the recently announced Filmnet, a new distributor of C More Film. As part of the Swedish TV4 Group, C More already uses Vimond to power its online Web TV services C More and C Sports.
“Filmnet will enable us to offer films and TV series to a rapidly growing market, helping us to secure greater market share and giving our audience greater TV experiences,” said Jan Rizvi, head of IT development at TV4. “Together with Vimond Media Solutions, we are able to keep pace with end users’ expectations. Vimond’s advanced knowledge of how to use technologies such as Smooth Streaming, Flash HTTP, Dynamic Streaming, and HLS ensures great video quality across all screens.”
Filmnet is built on the Ruby on Rails open-source Web framework and launches with a new Silverlight player framework built by Vimond. The player has features such as an episode chooser, clip info, language chooser for viewing and subtitling, and a streaming-quality monitor.
