Veset Further Expands Cloud Playout Platform Distribution Capabilities

Veset recently announced the integration of Veset Nimbus cloud playout with Wowza Streaming Engine software.

Veset Nimbus is a professional cloud-based playout platform that allows content owners to originate and operate their linear TV channels in a cost-efficient, agile and flexible manner. Using Wowza technology allows Veset Nimbus to further expand the list of supported video input and output formats with the addition of Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) format.

By adding Wowza Streaming Engine to the Veset Nimbus toolkit, Veset is able to further enhance the delivery and distribution capabilities of its cloud playout platform. Upon customer’s request Wowza Streaming Engine is deployed together with Veset Nimbus playout and allows channel originators to record and archive live and linear streams, transcode outputs in multiple protocols and qualities, add DRM, and send feeds directly to CDNs and stream targets like Facebook Live, YouTube and Wowza Streaming cloud. In particular, it enables Veset’s customers to receive and send Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) video feeds and manage multiple SRT feeds through its UI. Wowza’s monthly subscription SaaS model is fully aligned with that of Veset Nimbus.

“Veset is constantly expanding its technological offering by adding new formats, functions and features. We believe OTT distribution is where the future of linear TV is and we continue to work with leading technology partners such as Wowza to deliver the breadth of functionality and flexibility required by modern OTT linear television. Wowza was one of the co-founders of the SRT Alliance and we are glad that we can offer our customers a reliable and professional-grade management tool for customers who choose SRT for OTT streaming.” said Igor Krol, Veset Chief Executive Officer.

“Wowza Streaming Engine is the gold standard of customisable streaming server software for building and delivering professional-grade streaming at any scale. We are excited that it will now enable customers of Veset Nimbus cloud playout platform to stream their linear channels using the SRT protocol and leverage other world-class capabilities of Wowza Streaming Engine.” said Chris Cross, General Manager, Wowza Core Products.
