Live remote production and workflow brings cost savings to broadcasters by opening the Studio LAN to a Studio WAN environment
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, together with partner Miranda Technologies, a worldwide provider of production, playout and delivery systems for the television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV industries, will display a live remote production and workflow demo at IBC 2012. Net Insight will also discuss how, through seeing the first larger commercial success of remote production techniques at the London Olympics this year, companies are becoming more aware of how they can simplify remote workflows and centralized production for live events.
Net Insight's live demo will exemplify why the company's high-quality media transport capabilities, in conjunction with a solution such as Miranda Technologies', is an ideal way to enable integration and accessibility for all studios and content regardless of location. By showing increasing efficiency and simplifying workflows, the London Games has provided an example of how cost savings can be brought to broadcasters by opening the Studio LAN to a Studio WAN environment, enabling the provisioning of resources over a virtual studio network. As a result broadcasters can now cover and produce a larger number of events, over long distances, which leads to increased revenue gains and greater efficiency.
"Net Insight has driven the trend towards remote production and workflows for a long time and is pleased to see how quickly the industry has adapted to new ways of working, seeing the large commercial implementation of this trend at the London Olympics this summer," said Per Lindgren, co-founder and VP of business development, Net Insight. "A high-quality, real-time network can bring broadcasters and service providers huge cost savings and enable more efforts in content creation"
The company's Nimbra JPEG2000 encoders and decoders were deployed by SVT, the Swedish public service television company, to meet the needs of remote production and to deliver live sports programming from London via two broadcast channels and six Internet streams.
In addition, the likes of TeliaSonera International Carrier (recently acquired by Hibernia Media), Swiss broadcaster SRG SSR and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) also used the Net Insight Nimbra MSR platform to deliver remote production capabilities from sporting events in London this year.
TeliaSonera International Carrier was chosen by eleven global broadcasters to provide support in delivering remote production for clients over its fiber-based media network using Net Insight's Nimbra MSR platform, while Twentyfourseven, a company developing and delivering technical solutions for TV, sport and event production such as the Distance Outside Broadcast (DOB) remote workflow solution, is using TeliaSonera International Carrier's premier network to deliver live content.
SVT also chose the Distance Outside Broadcast (DOB) remote workflow solution. To learn more about this implementation please visit the Net Insight booth at IBC 2012 where Twentyfourseven will share their experience.
Net Insight and Miranda Technologies will be showcasing live remote production and workflow capabilities from the show floor at IBC 2012. Show attendees can view the demonstration at the Net Insight booth (#1.B40)..
