Net Insight expanded its Nimbra 600 series of multiservice switch routers at IBC2012 with the introduction of the Nimbra 640, a cost efficient and scalable media access gateway for media transport over IP networks.
The Nimbra 640 includes unique mechanisms for Quality of Service (QoS) of bi-directional video and Ethernet transport. This coupled with integrated support for high-quality, low-latency JPEG2000 video compression, makes it well-suited for live event contribution and remote production. Other applications for the Nimbra 640 media access gateway include primary DTT-distribution, IPTV/Cable TV distribution and studio interconnect.
The Nimbra 640 offers features unique to Nimbra, including lossless routing, QoS enhanced links and service-centric network management, and is Net insight’s first Nimbra 600-based gateway specifically designed for access applications.
