Swisscom taps Net Insight for contribution system
Swisscom Broadcast will use Net Insight’s Nimbra platform to transport live HD video, voice and data content.
Swisscom Broadcast will use Net Insight’s contribution systems to cover all premier league ice hockey and football arenas in Switzerland. These venues are among Swisscom Broadcast’s approximately 520 transmitter sites throughout Switzerland.
The Swiss broadcaster also offers IPTV and video distribution, ranging from the capturing and encoding of TV programs and video content to complete multi-screen IPTV solutions.
Net Insight’s JPEG2000 high-density technology provides low-latency video compression. Swisscom Broadcast will also use the Touch&Switch application provided by Institut fur Rundfunktechnik (IRT) to facilitate fast provisioning of broadcast signals, complementing Net Insight’s network management tool, Nimbra Vision.
Delivery and installation will take place during the first half of 2012.
