Net Insight and Carrier1 form joint venture

"We confirm that Net Insight and Carrier1 are forming a jointly owned company to launch video services over a pan-European media network, based on DTM technology (Dynamic synchronous Transfer Mode)", says Bengt Olsson, CEO at Net Insight.

The services target media and TV companies in Europe, which need to transfer large quantities of moving pictures between different studios and TV stations. This type of transmission demands a bandwidth capacity of up to 270 Mbps.
