[SatNews] The Vimond Platform and The Vimond Highlights Live-to-VOD clip extraction tool from Vimond Media Solutions (IBC 14.E26) have been shortlisted for the CSI Awards 2015 in the Best IPTV Technology and Best Social TV Technology categories.
The CSI Awards, which are celebrating their 13th year, have experienced the highest number of entries on record, making it an even greater achievement to be shortlisted this year. The winners will be determined by an independent judging panel and will be announced on Friday 11 September 2015 at IBC in Amsterdam.

The Vimond Platform is a suite of software applications and tools that help content owners, broadcasters, and content distributors manage their video services and publish with full control and efficiency on any device. The latest version, Vimond Platform 1.8, includes powerful new features designed to enhance capabilities for global operation, including multi-tenancy, increased support for multi-language services, easy integration of multiple CDNs into primary and fallback configurations, and the ability to populate multiple sites from the same content store, to target differentiated audiences. Multi-publishing support lets content aggregator sites allow individual content contributors to curate their own content, and the Flagging feature lets viewers notify multi-contributor Platform operators in case of sub-standard content.
One of the most user-friendly and fast 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. At IBC, Vimond will show Highlights 1.7, with new features including support for Chrome with MPEG-Dash, the ability to update already-created clips, and many stability enhancements.
