Russia’s largest telecom operator, Rostelecom, will use Net Insight’s Nimbra platform for live video transport feeds for a major winter sports event in Russia this month. The compact platform is especially suited for occasional use services.
Using the platform Rostelecom will transport live video feeds from Sochi to Moscow. Rostelecom is a new Net Insight customer, and placed the order for Nimbra in December in partnership with Kontur-M, one of Net Insight’s Premium partners in Russia. Kontur-M will supply on-site services during the winter sporting event.
“Rostelecom will deploy Net Insight’s Nimbra platform in order to serve our customers’ contribution needs during the upcoming sporting event,” said Igor Kachalov, senior specialist, service TV and radio at Rostelecom. “The Nimbra platform not only provides a highly stable JPEG2000 compression solution but also ensures advanced protection mechanisms. These benefits in combination with Net Insight’s and Kontur-M’s professional services were imperative in selecting the Nimbra platform.”
Fredrik Tumegård, CEO at Net Insight added: “Adding Rostelecom to our list of major service providers demonstrates that our Nimbra platform is the ideal solution for mission-critical live sports broadcasting. Net Insight has set the pace for innovation in the industry, and with this latest customer win, we are strengthening our presence in Russia as we strive to support the needs of our customers’ networks.”
