​Veset Features Nimbus Cloud Playout

Veset Nimbus is presented as a platform for cloud-based all-in-one playout that also includes new tools for live event management.

By using Amazon Web Service’s S3 and EC2 as its primary cloud storage and computing resource, Nimbus offers content owners possibilities to create, and manage linear channels – "all with no need for investment in client-side hardware."

By running in the cloud, Nimbus enables channels to be created, run, and maintained from anywhere in the world. Nimbus cloud playout adheres to key industry standards and workflow processes while enabling users to take full advantage of the scalability and flexibility of cloud-enabled technologies.

CEO Igor Krol said, “There are already more than 500 million households worldwide watching channels created by our playout and delivered through satellite, cable, IPTV and CDN distribution platforms. The advances we continue to make in its power and usability keep it far ahead of any similar service on the market today.

“As one of the new features for the 2017 NAB Show, Veset Nimbus will boast fully built-in integration with Zixi-enabled broadcast-grade IP video delivery solutions, which offers cost efficient delivery of linear feeds to distribution platforms globally.”

Veset CTO Gatis Gailis adds, “Aging, loosely defined channel-in-a-box and edge solutions just don’t cut it anymore. Despite seemingly endless efforts by service providers and technology vendors to repackage old hardware and GPU dependent solutions and sell them as cloud solutions, clients can now see through the smoke and mirrors created by marketing and recognise that new technological solutions, built ground up for the cloud, deliver the full benefits of the cloud. Ultimately that translates into a cost effective and future-proof platform for linear television.”
