Nevion Engineering Team awarded a Technical and Engineering Emmy

Nevion is honored for major role in the standardization and productization of JPEG 2000 (J2K) Interoperability.

Nevion has received a Technical and Engineering Emmy award from National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), at the this year's Consumer Electronics Show. The award is in recognition of Nevion’s role in the standardization and productization of JPEG 2000 (J2K) Interoperability, which is a high quality image compression technology that is used by broadcasters for the transport of professional video over IP networks.

The Nevion team is one of the pioneers of JPEG 2000 over IP for live contribution and first launched this technology at the 2006 NAB show. Since then, Nevion has played a key role in the development of the standard, working with the Video Services Forum (VSF) to develop the JPEG 2000 technical recommendation. Nevion JPEG 2000 solutions have been deployed by network services providers and content producers such as BBC, BT, EBU, ORF, NRK and Telenor. The technology is also widely used in the Hollywood post community for remote screening and remote color correction.

Nevion fully manages all network types - with intelligence, automation and security built-in, helping customers monetise content, save resources, and open doors to new revenue streams.

The company also delivers content for major sporting events and live TV events worldwide. Some of the world’s largest media networks including AT&T, Arqiva, BBC, BT, CCTV, EBU, TDF, Telefonica, Telenor and NASA are built on Nevion technologies.
