ORS, the technical services subsidiary of Austrian public broadcaster ORF, has chosen Net Insight, a Swedish provider of transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, to build up a DVB-T2 network in Austria.

The agreement, sealed through Net Insight's Vienna-based local partner TV-Connect Broadcast Systems, will provide ORS with a scalable solution using its underlying IP infrastructure to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria.

The network which will complement Austria's existing DVB-T-based DTT network will deliver multiple services such as HDTV channels and radio stations. Net Insight's Nimbra 680 high-capacity MSR will enable efficient and secure multicast throughout the network, according to the Stockholm-based company.The first phase of the rollout based on more than 40 Nimbra 680 nodes will begin in Q3 2012. The deployment of the Austrian DVB-T2 network will continue during 2013 and 2014."We are delighted that ORS has chosen Net Insight's solution to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria", said Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight.

"As the only company in Austria responsible for national DTT distribution, ORS's choice of our products is a real quality stamp and proves that Net Insight maintains a leading position in the DTT market."
