Swedish broadcasting solutions provider Net Insight has been selected by a Latin American operator for a service expansion.

The operator, whose name remains a secret, has chosen the company's Nimbra MSR platform to extend its contribution and distribution network.

The network expansion will enable transport of JPEG2000 compressed video services over IP, which makes more viable the distribution of high quality video streams regardless of broadband availability.

This avoids the possible problems generated by uncompressed video, whose transport has many advantages in the production chain, but whose contribution and distribution applications may be problematic due to the bandwidth demand. The Nimbra MSR solution will provide flexible service for the local broadcasters.

Net Insight will deliver the technology before the end of the year, and the deal is valued at nearly €1 million.

“The order shows our leading position in video transport in Latin America,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO at Net Insight. “Our customers are preparing for coming major sports events on this continent.”

Net Insights delivers transport solutions for broadcast and IP media, DTT and IPTV/CATV networks. The Nimbra platform is the industry solution for video, voice and data, reducing cost and enhancing competitiveness in delivery of existing and new media services.
