Sky News Arabia's Project SkyNet platform for disaster recovery has won the IBC 2014 Innovation Award for Content Management.

The platform, which uses Nevion's Flashlink media transport technology, can be accessed and controlled over the Internet from any of the Abu Dhabi-based news network's 20 Middle East bureaux. It also enables Sky News Arabia to broadcast and transmit live programming and breaking news from any location.

Nevion provided optical transport, signal processing and a distribution system for the Project SkyNet content management system.

"As a supplier of network equipment for Project Skynet, we're obviously very pleased to see that this project has won an IBC Innovation Award, which we feel is one of the most prestigious accolades in the industry," said Nick Pywell, VP sales Europe and Middle East, Nevion.
