You.i TV and Vimond are providing SVOD and TV Everywhere solutions with differentiated one-stop access to the front- and back-end elements needed to achieve direct-to-consumer success. The collaboration allows customers to leverage the combined power of the Vimond Platform, a multi-tenant architecture that includes tools and controls needed to manage and deliver multi-format OTT services, and the You.i Engine experience platform, which expedites availability of best-in-class video apps at scale.

Vimond provides the platform for many award-winning TV Everywhere services, including Thomson Reuters, Swedish TV4 Play, TV 2, RiksTV and NRK in Norway, MTV in Finland, and C-More in Northern Europe. Vimond has also delivered SVOD services for iflix in SE Asia and for Comcast in the US.
