Vidispine Launches Cloud-Based Media Services Platform

Vidinet is presented as a bolt-on offering that can be added onto an existing Vidispine Server installation, using the Vidispine Server API.

The initial launch will include transcoding and advanced automated quality control (QC). Vidinet will be expanded with more services in the near future, in close collaboration with partners and customers.

As a pay-as-you-go platform, users only pay for services and features they use, while having access to a range of media services in the cloud.

“Scalability is a big challenge in the industry right now, both for fast-growing startups and large established players. The demands and priorities for content providers are always changing, and it is impossible to invest in all the tools they may one day need,” commented Erik Åhlin, CEO, Vidispine. “Vidinet levels the playing field between large and small companies, giving anyone access to global scalability and advanced media services without large initial investments.

“Services are executed in the cloud without the need to move content out of existing cloud storages – Vidispine calls this near-content execution. With the built-in cost prediction feature, it is possible to quickly calculate the cost of running a specific service on a piece of content before service execution.”
