Categories Playout - Cloud

Veset Nimbus is the enterprise-grade, cloud playout platform for advanced channel management. It enables efficient and professional delivery and monetisation of linear channels to OTT or broadcast. As a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, Nimbus embraces its cloud-based nature, making it scalable, customisable, and flexible. Nimbus allows for users to manage multiple channels with multiple live feeds in real time and utilise the advanced capabilities of SCTE35.

With this considered, the software allows for high levels of redundancy without compromising on high-quality video streams.As a SaaS solution, it allows for the easy creation and scheduling of new channels in the cloud, meaning that content owners can manage multiple linear channels without the need to invest in hardware. It includes a range of all-in-one channel creation tools from live stream and file ingest, scheduling, EPG, content management, SCTE35, multiple live switching and complex graphics, to playout and encoding.

Channels can include a mix of live and video-on-demand (VOD) content. Live recording support allows users to record live input sources and ingest these directly to the media library. Users can also record a live feed for real-time streaming or schedule it for playback at a future time.

The solution includes the ability to stream playouts in portrait modes such as 9:16, optimising footage for viewing on mobile phone screens. This feature makes it easier for broadcasters to reach and maintain viewership of the large and growing number of people viewing live and VOD content on mobile.
