SRG SSR uses Net Insight for major sporting events20 August 2013
Swiss national broadcaster SRG SSR has selected a range of solutions from Net Insight for upcoming sporting events. Net Insight’s Nimbra 600 series will be used for events in Russia 2014 and the Zurich 2014 European Athletics Championships.
SRG SSR is building a new dedicated contribution network for the events, based on the Net Insight Nimbra 600 series. The network is fully redundant, offering audio and compressed video services. The broadcaster has worked with Net Insight during major events in previous years, and the partnership looks set to continue in the future.
The Nimbra platform ensures QoE in media networks, and allows SGR SSR to transport high quality live content. It also offers SRG SSR flexibility and enables rapid response to new network requirements.
“This implementation for SRG SSR and the two exciting sports events in 2014 confirms our strength in building relationships with existing customers, and delivering on our promise of a guaranteed quality of service in live broadcasting,” said Anders Persson, executive vice president and interim CEO at Net Insight.
