Vimond Media Solutions announced today that its CEO, Helge Hoibraaten, will deliver a session at the Vizrt Days event on May 10. Titled "Monetizing Online Video," the session will discuss the opportunities for profitable over-the-top (OTT) services, using examples from current implementations by major broadcasters.

The session will address using the Vimond Video Platform for efficient delivery to a range of devices, including the iPad® and iPhone®, and the key factors in providing a high-quality user experience that integrates well with broadcast content.

The Vimond Video Platform is a comprehensive fully featured environment enabling broadcasters, distributors, and media companies to create compelling online and on-demand services. Now available for the first time to broadcasters, telcos, and media organizations, the Vimond Video Platform provides an intuitive and mature environment for production staff to manage the distribution of online video content, a powerful set of tools for managers to create commercially successful services, and a stable, high-quality experience for viewers.


Vimond Media Solutions is a new company launched in Q1 2011, but the technology embodied in the Vimond Video Platform has been developed and proven in production for more than ten years at TV 2 in Norway and at other Scandinavian broadcasters.

Vimond will also share a stand at Vizrt Days with Reaktor.
