The Vimond platform provides a comprehensive environment for managing
highly efficient streaming of content

Vimond’s Development Frameworks
V
imond Media Solutions has
announced a collection of
licensed development frameworks
that enable customers to build
great end-user experiences for
smartphones, tablets, Macs, PCs,
set-top boxes, and more.
The frameworks, which are
implemented on Vimond APIs,
are built so that a broad variety of
portals can take advantage of the
Vimond Platform. Each framework
acts as a layer between an API and
a portal, tying everything together
for a rich viewer experience.
“The process of building a service
with APIs usually takes months, but
most of our customers don’t want to
wait that long to take an online video
service to market. With our open
application frameworks, they don’t
have to,” said Helge Høibraaten,
CEO of Vimond Media Solutions.
“The frameworks ensure our

XenData Launches SX-525
Server Cluster
enData, a leading provider of
LTO archive solutions to the
media and entertainment industry,
has announced the launch of the
SX-525, an LTO archive server
cluster for high availability that
scales to provide multiple Petabytes
of near-line LTO storage.
The new XenData SX-525
supports one or more LTO libraries
connected via fibre channel and
includes two servers running
Windows Server 2012 in a clustered
configuration with a fully redundant
RAID cache. The SX-525 supports
most enterprise-class robotic LTO
libraries, including models from HP,
IBM, Oracle, Qualstar, Quantum and
Spectra Logic. It may be configured
to mirror files across two LTO
libraries, creating a fully redundant
LTO archive system with no single
point of failure.
The SX-525 adheres strongly to
industry standards in all aspects
of its design. It supports writing
to LTO-5 and LTO-6 cartridges
using either the LTFS interchange
standard or open standard TAR
format, eliminating vendor lock-in.
Furthermore, the server may be
accessed with a standard file/folder
interface over 10 GigE or 1 GigE

X

The SX-525 was demonstrated
at IBC2013

networks using either the CIFS/SMB
or FTP network protocols.
“The new SX-525 server cluster is
our latest product in the XenData
SX-520 Series, all of which may
be accessed just like disk-based
Network Attached Storage,” said
Phil Storey, XenData CEO. “This
means that our products are
inherently compatible with a wide
range of applications used in the
media and entertainment industry. In
addition, our use of the LTFS format
ensures that there is LTO cartridge
interchangeability with other LTO
solutions that comply with the
LTFS standard. ”
The SX-525 will be available
later this year and includes onsite
support from Hewlett Packard in
most regions worldwide.

customers can build their own
services quickly that will work
on any browser or device, and at
the same time provide advanced
Web technologies that allow for
sophisticated features.”
Vimond application frameworks
give full control of the portal
development for iOS and Android
devices, the Web, connected TVs,
and other screens without the
need for in-depth knowledge of
Vimond’s APIs.
The frameworks enable
development on the Vimond
Platform, a feature-rich, powerful,
modular online TV platform that
enables high-performance, highquality multiscreen offerings.
Vimond’s flexible and modular
approach to online video distribution
lets customers choose the product
packages that are most relevant and
then customise them.

X2O Media Signage Goes Live
X

2O Media, a full-ser vice
provider of software, network
management, and content services
for real-time visual communication
applications, has implemented the
award-winning X2O Media software
at Singapore’s latest performing
arts venue–The Star Performing
Arts Centre (The Star PAC).
The software platform drives
information to more than 100
digital signage screens across the
nine-level state-of-the-art complex,
including broadcast-quality live
events streaming, wayfinding
capabilities, upcoming event
promotions, and dynamic meeting
room information.
Completed in November 2012,
The Star PAC features a collection
of performance and event spaces,
including The Star Theatre, a
5,000-seat auditorium designed
by Artec Consultants Inc; The Star
Gallery, a 770-sqm multipurpose
hall; The Star Terrace, a 300-seat
outdoor amphitheatre; The Star
Loft, a rooftop reception area; and
supporting ancillary studios. The
complex has become both a major
cultural landmark for Southeast Asia
and a revolutionary concept of how
arts and commercial establishments
are built into Singapore’s city centre.
“With a new structure as
revolutionary as The Star, we

needed a digital signage system
equal to the task of delivering
diverse content and live streaming
to multiple screens, all while
seamlessly integrating into our
existing network,” said Jack Ho,
Chief Operating Officer at The Star
PAC. “The X2O Media platform’s
flexibility, broadcast-quality
graphics, real-time communication,
and central management tools
made it the obvious choice for our
requirements. We are also able
to repurpose content easily to
fulfill a series of other functions,
such as wayfinding signs and the
promotion of upcoming events,
making the installation a complete,
multipurpose solution that satisfies
the diverse needs of our centre.”
