Net Insight to Expand Nimbra Platform at IBC 2015

Net Insight will expand its Nimbra platform, allowing the media transport system to deliver high quality live, interactive and on-demand media content to audiences anywhere in the world. Nimbra, the vendor said, provides carrier grade performance and availability, with flexibility for future capacity growth and functional needs.

At IBC, Net Insight will unveil a new tool that will compliment and enhance the capabilities of its customer-provisioned networks. It enables broadcasters and content owners to automatically and instantly self-provision the transport of video and Ethernet services over service providers’ networks on-demand.

At the show, Net Insight will also demo its solution for transporting 4K signals over IP infrastructures consisting of 1 G to 10 G links. By enabling high-quality compressed TV content to be delivered over diverse network links, the solution makes 4K transport commercially viable. The solution offers integrated JPEG2000 compression and support for path diversity to allow splitting the signal over multiple low-bandwidth connections.

Net Insight’s Nimbra offers support for any underlying network, including IP, wavelength systems and dark fiber and ensures the user is never limited by existing infrastructure. It is open and programmable with support for both static and occasional use video, audio and data services.

The system is designed with redundant and hot-swappable hardware with redundancy for all services. There is native support for JPEG2000 compressed and uncompressed SD, HD, 3G and 4K video services, high quality MADI audio and carrier Ethernet data services on the same platform. A programmable system enables software-defined networking, allowing any application to provision and monitor services through open interfaces.

At IBC, Net Insight will display its Nimbra VA 200 series, which allows for the expansion of content acquisition and for sports broadcasters and OTT-providers to create and cover more content through media transport over the global Internet. The company will also showcase how the Nimbra VA 220 enables on-site personnel to connect to cameras for compression, conversion and transport of high-quality content across any type of network in the absence of reliable bandwidth.

Net Insight has aided remote workflows in production environments by providing the real-time, low-latency content with 100 percent quality of service (QoS) demanded by media operators.

This will be showcased with a joint demo of a live transport feed from Net Insight’s to Grass Valley’s stand at IBC. Net Insight will also discuss its most significant deployments that point to this as a continued trend.
