Rumble rebrands as Vinson, launches Stievie in Belgium


Formerly known as Rumble, Vinson wants to disrupt mobile TV. The are introducing a white-label OTT (Over The Top) solution for broadcasters, content aggregators and content distributors. One of their first projects is Stievie, a collaboration of three major broadcasters in Belgium allowing users to watch 9 channels on their mobile device.

The platform offers all a broadcaster would want these days. Live television, a TV guide, a PVR, time-shifting and the integration of social platforms. The only thing I did not see is integration with the big screen, but it can very well be this is completely out of their focus.

On the team of this Dutch company, we see Raimo van der Klein (mobile visionary and co-founder of Layar). Before it became Vinson, the companies was called Rumble. A few years ago, Rumble was part of the innovative IT company Triple IT. According to van der Klein they are still part of the company. The CCO of Triple IT, Ben van der Burg, is also a well-known innovator in the Netherlands.
