About us

Does our vision
sound like your future?

We founded Vidispine because we believe in software innovation and the power of rich media story-telling. Our background is 15 years of building software companies and changing the media industry. We are concentrating that experience on building the best tools for creating innovative media software and solutions.

Vidispine is a software platform for media software innovation. It commoditizes media asset management. We are about taking all the know-how from how you deliver advanced rich media solutions, and commoditize that into a middleware platform.

The Vidispine philosophy is creating eco-systems of companies where everyone does what they do best. We are always looking for interesting partners like software companies, system integrators, independent consultants and anyone who has bright ideas, great software or extraordinary skills.
Just let us know what you want to achieve!

Vidispine Content Management Repository Available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Vidispine’s API-based content management repository is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, making it easier than ever to video-enable the enterprise.

A fully featured version including format management, transcoding, advanced metadata management, multi-tiered asset management and much more can now be deployed from the Azure Marketplace. Vidispine is already used by some of the largest and most complex media companies in the world. Having Vidispine in the Azure Marketplace makes it accessible to any enterprise, large or small.

Vidispine helps programmers speed up the building of video- and media-based applications, integrations and prototypes. IT managers and CIOs will see the benefits of effortless and cost-efficient deployment of video management on their Azure infrastructure.

To help developers get started, Vidispine is running a community site with insights, tips and tricks at http://howto.vidispine.com/.

We are building out the video support in ImageVault by using Vidispine on Microsoft Azure. It was the natural step for us to enable video in our publishing solution for Microsoft SharePoint and EPiServer since our product strategy is built on Azure,” says Johan Magnusson, Product Manager of Meriworks AB.

Vidispine can help ISVs greatly reduce the time it takes to add video to their solutions, like Meriworks is doing with their ImageVault product.

I am thrilled to see how Microsoft can help innovative software companies like Vidispine reach a true mass market by making it available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace,” said Venkat Gattemneni, Group Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Corp. “It helps our global customer base find smart solutions to complex problems just as much as it helps businesses to focus on what they do best.”

System integrators helping enterprises to video-enable their intranet, collaboration platforms or web presence will benefit by choosing a future-proof and enterprise-grade media repository like Vidispine.

Vidispine makes it amazingly simple to build combined integrations and standardized software for our most demanding clients. Making it available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace only further underlines where our industry is going and what our clients are asking for,” says Chris Collum, President of 1303Systems Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri.

About Vidispine

Vidispine is an enterprise-grade media asset management backbone. The capabilities are supported by well-documented and robust RESTful APIs that work with any modern programming language. Vidispine lets software developers and service providers easily build new, innovative rich media solution. Vidispine scales from small archives to multi-site deployments and is agnostic in regards to OS, storage, media formats, application servers, databases and IT infrastructure.

Release of Vidispine 4.4

Introducing the Vidispine Server Agent - bridging the gap between cloud and local systems

The Vidispine Server Agent (VSA) is a marvellous piece of software to connect your on-premise file storage to a remote Vidispine system, enabling cloud deployments of Vidispine while keeping essence in the original place. The VSA comes with an onboard transcoder, controllable from your cloud based Vidispine, enabling you to perform all kinds of local file surgery and movements without a single byte of essence ever leaving your local premises. VSA is available both for Ubuntu/Debian and CentOS/RedHat releases. Read more here.

Other new features in v. 4.4:

Transcoder sharing, discovery and dedication
  - Transcoders can now be shared between Vidispine instances, allowing you to squeeze the most out of your software and hardware investment at all times. Read more here
   - Transcoders can now be automatically discovered via either DNS or HTTP, allowig integration with DNS servers and services such as Amazon Route 53 and Consul. Read more here.
   - Transcoders can now be dedicated to certain job types with Task groups, a new entity that pairs an entity with a resource according to rules. You can use this to e.g. enforce jobs to use a certain transcoder or reserve transcoders for high priority jobs. Read more here

Waveform visualization support
We've added an shape analysis algorithm that will extract RMS data to produce a representative audio waveform, made available to you as numerical values or PNG images (one per audio channel). Read more here on shape analysis in general and here for the waveform function in particular.

Amazon S3 Notification Support
Amazon S3 file notifications are now supported, making it possible to have Amazon push file event notifications to Vidispine instead of Vidispine performing expensive poll requests to your S3 buckets. Read more here. While we were at it we added support for the latest AWS SDK including the new signature version 4 signing process, enabling buckets stored in Beijing and Frankfurt to be used with Vidispine.

For further details, see the release highlights section in the online API documentation
