Veset, the pioneer of true cloud playout and linear channel management 100% cloud-based platforms for linear television, today announced its partnership with and CIS Group Corporation, a leading distributor and digital media systems designer and integrator covering the Eastern US and Brazil.
Under the new partnership, CIS Group will carry the entire line of Veset’s cloud playout platforms, including Nimbus and Stratus. Veset’s flagship product, Nimbus, enables broadcasters to create professional linear TV channels in a cost-efficient, agile, and flexible manner and deliver them to any linear television distribution platform, from OTT to satellite, terrestrial, cable and IPTV.
Veset’s CEO, Igor Krol provided his perspective on the partnership, stating:
“We are very excited to create a partnership with such an established player such as CIS Group. We really enjoy working with the CIS team, which combines a strong understanding of traditional broadcast workflows with the capacity to quickly adopt new cloud and IP technologies. As content owners adopt cloud native applications for their core operations, such as linear channels, they need strong partners to guide them through that journey. By combining CIS’s media workflow systems integration expertise and deep relationships with the leading media organizations in Brazil and in the US with Veset’s innovative technology, we look to open the door for easier migration of linear channel origination into the cloud – making it more agile and allowing for real innovation in this space”.
Commenting on the partnership, CIS Group’s CEO Matt Silva added:
“For a few years now, our industry has been analyzing the potential of cloud-based workflows for media production, post-production and distribution, but the adoption rate of these technologies has been relatively sluggish. The COVID-19 pandemic has served to accelerate the inevitable transition away from legacy on-prem infrastructures and toward the next generation of technologies that enable both hybrid and pure cloud models. Veset’s solutions are well positioned to provide customers with cost effective and operationally efficient ways of distributing content from the cloud – we at CIS are very excited about working with the Veset team, and look forward to bringing these solutions to market together.”
While reducing the total costs of operating a linear channel, Veset also delivers broadcast industry standards of reliability and security. In addition to delivering cloud technology innovation, Veset strives to bring a SaaS driven business model to the broadcast industry, by providing transparently priced, fixed monthly subscription options for its playout services.
Founded in 2011 Veset is a technology disruptor in linear television playout space. Veset was one of the first to deploy a native AWS-based linear channel management platform for video content owners.
