TV Everywhere today announced the release of the VidZapper video content management system. The new service allows web video and Internet TV channel operators to combine professional, user generated and third party hosted content. The service will be available through a global network of resellers, who will provide support and management services for the software.
The VidZapper feature set looks rich: integrated encoding, CDN hosting and serving, user management, player management and play build API, channel management, metadata management, ad management for banners, MPU's, pre-rolls and instream ads, and user-genreated video with moderation.
"The problem to date has been that Internet TV channel operators have had to decide between free, but poor quality systems with little commercial support on one hand, and very expensive professional systems on the other. Now anyone wishing to launch an Internet TV service - or to add a video service to their existing web service - can do so on a commercial basis, knowing that they can see a return on their investment," said TV Everywhere CEO Iolo Jones.
