Stockholm, Sweden – Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient optical transport solutions for media, broadcast and IP networks has received an order for delivery of the Nimbra platform to a contribution network to carry video feeds from venues in a European football league.
The Nimbra platform has proven to be the top choice for demanding contribution networks responsible for transporting live sports footage from many professional sports venues across the globe including the U.S. and Europe as well as major events such as the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
A European media operator is now deploying a contribution network for live sport transmissions of a European football league. The network will carry SD feeds from multiple venues to a central production facility. Net Insight’s Nimbra equipment will be delivered in June 2009.
The Nimbra platform provides superior flexibility, efficiency and reliability for contribution of live events. The Nimbra 680 is a next generation multi-service switch designed to meet the rigorous rich media and data service needs of the carrier and service provider markets including high switching capacity, end-to-end provisioning and restoration, full topology support, unique multicast support and 100 percent quality of service guaranteed. Equipped with the 8 x Video Access Module, it offers extensive flexibility for studio, contribution and distribution networks. Each of the module’s eight ports can be individually configured as ASI In or ASI Out, as well as standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD) SDI. The module delivers a cost-effective multi-purpose solution for video streams that require a mix of compressed and uncompressed HD and SD content from a single venue, such as sports arenas and editing trucks.
