Electric Entertainment was looking for a professional channel origination and management platform which could deliver operational flexibility and high quality service, combined with intuitive easy to use design enabling self-service. Electric team did not have previous experience in launching and managing linear channel workflow and utilised Veset support team’s extensive knowledge and experience to navigate linear television space and integrate NImbus into broader workflow especially on the distribution side (including output setup / configuration and testing with various OTT platforms).
At the same time it wanted to avoid long term commitments, investment in technology and engineering personnel historically required by a 24/7 linear channel operations.
Electric Entertainment is using Veset Nimbus platform for scheduling ElectricNOW channel and 100% cloud-based setup in AWS.
Electric Entertainment is a Los Angeles based production, distribution, and post-production company lead by Dean Devlin, a legendary Hollywood director known for the hit series including “The Outpost”, “Leverage”, “The Librarians” and movies such as “Bad Samaritan” and “Independence Day”. ElectricNOW is Electric Entertainment’s first linear TV channel that features Electric’s top series and films and some third party content. ElectricNOW service is currently running on Distro TV and STIRR platforms and is planned to launch on other OTT platforms in the near future.
