Net Insight Honored by Broadband Technology Reports' 2013 Diamond Technology Reviews

Nimbra VA 210 solution receives special "Honorable Mention" and scores high with judges

Stockholm, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading developer of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that its Nimbra VA 210 has received a special "Honorable Mention" as a product that shows a unique usefulness and purpose, or technological advance, and has been awarded a score of 3.5 in Broadband Technology Reports' prestigious 2013 Diamond Technology Reviews.

The Nimbra VA 210 expands network footprints to offer media operators the opportunity to address markets that previously have been out of their reach, due to costs related to first-mile connectivity, enabling new channels for specialized content to be transported to users and subscribers in a profitable way. It also enables fast deployment and quicker time to market by utilizing Internet access instead of dedicated connections, and provides a new way to quickly deploy network redundancy, providing back up and disaster recovery for satellite services.

"In a record-breaking year for product submissions and a blue-ribbon panel of judges who expected to see viable, adoptable solutions, Net Insight's Nimbra VA 210 made an impression. With so many video transport methodologies and products available to the operator community, both MSO and independent, the Nimbra VA 210 seems to have found acceptance and recognition as a viable video transport solution," said Tim Hermes, Publisher and Founder of Broadband Technology Report.

Net Insight's unique solution offers an industry-leading combination of content-aware Forward Error Correction (FEC) and selective retransmission over best effort IP networks. By incorporating content-aware FEC, which reduces effective packet loss and selective retransmission of unrecoverable data loss, coupled with clock synchronization, the Nimbra VA 210 can provide the reliable QoS layer that customers desire to confidently ingest content over unmanaged IP networks.

"We are proud to receive an Honorable Mention for our Nimbra VA 210 solution and it is fantastic to receive such a great score in the Diamond Technology Review. A number of our customers are already seeing what can be achieved by using best-effort IP networks to transport video content in such a cost effective and efficient way, without losing the quality expected by paying subscribers," said Per Lindgren, CTO and SVP Business Development at Net Insight.
