This is how VIMP works

With VIMP, we have been operating a multilingual B2B software solution as a video content management system for many years. The core functionality is comparable to the YouTube platform. The functional scope of VIMP has been significantly expanded compared to YouTube in terms of the integration of images, audio, documents and the addition of company-relevant features.

VIMP only requires standard server hardware for full operation, as VIMP solutions can be installed on publicly accessible Internet servers or operated on-prem in internal company networks (intranet).

With VIMP, videos can be provided, uploaded and virally distributed by both the operator and the user. Common features such as commenting, rating, forwarding and integrating media into other websites are also possible with VIMP. Users are also given the option to create albums, for example to display events, and access to share content in public and/or private groups.


VIMP offers you these advantages

Although VIMP is similar to the YouTube platform in the way it works, we offer our customers decisive advantages:

Individual access authorisation

Define the user roles and individualise the authorisations

Versatile media functions

Perfect for companies that want to customise their content to the needs of their customers

State-of-the-art technology at VIMP

Best quality videos on both desktop and mobile phones

Powerful media player

Whether 360-degree video, chapter markers or quality levels – the HTML5 Player has many features

Seamless interoperability

With VIMP, integration into many interfaces is possible, such as the Moodle or ILIAS plugin

Customised adaptations

With the admin panel, you have the option of customising your platform even further and adapting it to your company

A YouTube exactly according to your requirements

The VIMP platform can be fully integrated into existing websites and infrastructures or operated as a stand-alone solution for diverse and flexible video functionalities. All additional services are offered in a largely automated and scalable manner via various systems and partnerships.

The VIMP solutions can be provided within a very short time – either for installation in your network / data centre (on-premises), or completely managed by us as a managed service, so that you can concentrate fully on the application.

VIMP Enterprise - Our YouTube for companies

With our VIMP Enterprise solution, which is specially designed for enterprises, you get an established video platform that compares favourably with YouTube, but is also perfectly tailored to corporate use.

With VIMP, the individual requirements of your company or public authority can be easily and flexibly mapped on a graphical and functional level. In addition, VIMP enables targeted and secure playout of your media on all devices – as well as seamless integration into an existing intranet infrastructure.

The application areas of VIMP Enterprise offer you the following:

VIMP Plattform zur internen Kommunikation


Thanks to VIMP Enterprise, you can flexibly manage news, speeches or content – whether live or on demand – and broadcast them worldwide.

VIMP Youtube für E-Learning


Videos are best suited for interactive and entertaining knowledge transfer: whether internal training or onboarding – we help you to make your team fit!

Einfache Verwaltung von Videos im Youtube für Unternehmen

Digital Asset Management System

Manage all your videos centrally and clearly in our Asset Manager.

The special feature of VIMP Enterprise can also be seen in the various options for categories and channels. There is an unlimited selection of sub-categories, which are structured hierarchically and are ideal for deep integration. The categories are grouped according to the relevant contexts of the topics.

The various channels – comparable to YouTube channels – can be used for different organisational units or project groups, for example. Users can subscribe to them, whereupon they are automatically notified of new posts. The channels can also be set to “private” or “public”, whereby private channels can only be viewed by channel subscribers. This means that your content is only available to a clearly defined group of people if you wish.
