Net Insight, provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport, has signed a deal with Swisscom Broadcast to develop a nationwide DTT distribution network covering the whole of Switzerland and serving both radio and DVB-T/TV services.
Net Insight will enable Swisscom Broadcast to move to a flexible and reliable transport platform for all broadcast and data services. The solution is designed to lower Swisscom Broadcast’s OPEX by providing a future-proof network that will enable Swiss broadcasters to migrate more IP services on the same platform without the need for new hardware or network redesigns.
“We continue to work with Net Insight because they are extremely customer focused,” said Jean-Paul de Weckv(pictured, right), CEO of Swisscom Broadcast. “Not only do they understand our needs but also the needs of our customers, right through to what television and radio broadcasting demand today.”
“Our customers expect us to deliver the highest quality and most reliable solutions to transport any type of content over any type of network,” added Fredrik Tumegård (pictured, left), CEO of Net Insight. “The aim is to always ensure that our customers and their consumers enjoy rewarding television experiences that benefit all, both now and in the future.”
The roll out and migration to the new network will begin this quarter and be implemented right through to the first half of 2016. The value of the deliveries of this project under the contract is estimated to around €2 million.
