Stockholm, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that MediaCorp has selected the Nimbra MSR platform for a recently launched nationwide Digital Terrestrial TV Network in Singapore.
The ASEAN, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, is gearing up for Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) rollouts and Singapore is one of the countries offering TV viewers better image and sound quality. Singapore's free-to-air TV channels became available at end of 2013 and the DVB-T2 broadcasting standard was adopted.
The free-to-air broadcaster MediaCorp operates the new nationwide DTT network and Net Insight delivers the video transport solution with its Nimbra platform. All MediaCorp seven free-to-air channels are transmitted digitally since December with four in HD and the remaining channels will follow at a later stage.
MediaCorp is Singapore's leading media company offering a range of platforms, spanning television, radio, newspapers, magazines, movies, digital and out-of-home media.
The order was won in partnership with Nera Telecommunications Ltd, Net Insight's Premium partner in Singapore and delivery took place at the end of September 2013.
