TV Everywhere has announced the release of VidZapper, a low cost video content management system. It is a new service that allows web video and internet TV channel operators to combine professional, user generated and third party hosted content and will be available through a global network of resellers, who will provide support and management services for the software.
TV Everywhere CEO Iolo Jones, previously the founder of internet TV pioneers Web Channels and Narrowstep, said in a statement: “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. VidZapper typically costs around a tenth of the price of the traditional VMSes on the market to deploy and run and is highly adaptable.”
“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.”
