Net Insight Enables SIS LIVE to Deliver Live Coverage of Rugby

Stockholm, Sweden - Net Insight, the provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport, today announces its selection by SIS LIVE, one of the UK's leading broadcast connectivity experts, to ensure audiences can experience the highest-quality live coverage of sports events in the UK. With Net Insight, SIS LIVE can guarantee efficient and reliable live content with the unrivalled Quality of Experience (QoE) expected by consumers around the globe.

Live production of high profile sporting events, such as rugby, is resource intensive. Additionally, traditional OB production limits the amount of live content that can be effectively delivered to audiences. Net Insight's remote production solutions remove workflow bottlenecks caused by these challenges, enabling SIS LIVE to deliver more of the premium live and niche content audiences demand.

"In working with Net Insight for past live sporting events, we knew they were the obvious choice to deliver the unrivaled quality we wanted to deliver," said David Meynell, Managing Director at SIS LIVE. "In a rapidly changing media environment where the 'consumer is king,' audiences can now rest easy, knowing they can enjoy reliable and uninterrupted coverage of their favorite sporting event as the action unfolds."

"We ensure the live and local viewing experiences that earns audience loyalty," says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. "Our continued relationship with SIS LIVE is an example of how Net Insight is a true industry partner, enabling our customers to take advantage of new business opportunities and meet future growth demands from premium services."

SIS LIVE is deploying Net Insight's media transport solution at UK venues to extend its sporting fibre network to 13 Rugby grounds including Twickenham, the Millennium Stadium, the Olympic Park and Wembley Stadium, in addition to all English Premier League Football grounds.
The Nimbra MSRs combine encoding of standard definition, high definition and 4K content with efficient transport in a small form-factor.  The result is dense, high-quality and low-latency JPEG2000 capabilities built for top-notch media transport. This offers SIS LIVE's customers the optimum mix of protection services ranging from no protection to full hitless 1+1 protection, on a per service basis. SIS LIVE can now provide seamless return feeds for live interviews and other live content from all event stadia, without fear of latency, for their customers and at their MediaCityUK hub in Salford.
