Vimmi vs Brightcove and VDMS

How is Vimmi different than a Brightcove and VDMS (Verizon)? Brightcove is a feature rich B2C platform for managing the video lifecycle, but they hand off the delivery of content to CDNs. At the other end of the spectrum, VDMS (Verizon) is an end-to-end video management platform that handles pretty much everything.

However, Verizon had to acquire Uplynk and EdgeCast to reach this point. Vimmi developed the entire software stack in-house, so its more tightly integrated, and enables them to offer more innovation driven features like an Orchestration solution. The Orchestration solution helps Operators manage existing video infrastructure, regardless of how many different products are used in the environment.
