Companies Focus on Digital Transformation and Improving Value to Viewers

Veset has announced it has been acquired by leading Japanese media technology company, PLAY, Inc.. Veset will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of PLAY and continue to develop solutions for cloud playout and channel management.

PLAY uses the best-of-breed video distribution technology and a wide range of associated services to promote digital transformation in the media, content, and enterprise fields. Having worked with Veset for a number of years, the company had already integrated Veset Nimbus into its own KRONOS cloud playout service for the Japanese market.

Veset's playout solutions enablebroadcasters to originate and manage professional linear channels entirely in the cloud.Veset Nimbus features a spectrum of all-in-one channel creation tools for advanced linear TV channel management. Veset works with a wide range of broadcasters, service providers, and technology partners across the world.

Gatis Gailis, co-founder and former CTO, has been appointed CEO following the acquisition. He commented: Having worked with PLAY for a number of years, we already knew that there are a lot of synergies between our two companies, including a shared mission to enable digital transformation in the media and entertainment industry. This acquisition will help us to further develop our offerings and scale our company, especially increasing our presence across Asia.

Igor Krol, the retiring CEO of Veset said: I am very proud of our team's achievements in pushing innovation in the field of playout over the past decade. We built an amazing partnership with PLAY which now has been reinforced by this acquisition. Veset and its cloud playout platform are now backed by a strong strategic investor with plans to take them to the next level.

Kazumichi Kuroda, CEO, PLAY, added: At PLAY we place a great deal of emphasis on the value that can be delivered to viewers. Achieving that means focusing on creatinghigh-quality services that push the boundaries of innovation. Over the past years of working with Veset, we have been impressed, not just by the technology but also by the entire team that shares the same values as us. I am certain this will be a beneficial move, not only for the two companies, but also for our shared customers and ultimately their viewers.

Veset will be announcing further updates and features for its Nimbus solution in the coming weeks and months.
