HTN Orders Up Net Insight's Nimbra for U.S. Media Network

HTN Communications (formerly Hughes Television Network) deployed a network to transport sports telecasts using a Net Insight Nimbra platform. Starting with the 2007-08 National Hockey League and National Basketball Association seasons, the initial phase will cover approximately 10 venues with a continued rollout to other pro sports venues throughout the season. The platform will increase bandwidth and the service offering at the venues, including multiple high- and standard-definition video backhaul capabilities.
 
The Nimbra platform transports HD-SDI streams alongside SDI, MPEG (ASI and IP), audio (AES-EBU and E1) and Ethernet data traffic over a common network.
 
"Broadcast clients have shown a tremendous desire to take advantage of the reliability and quality benefits of a Nimbra network," said Joseph Cohen, chairman and CEO of HTN Communications.  "HTN's new DTM fiber optic network service will enhance existing fiber optic transmission delivery technology, vastly improving upon current network offerings. "
