Net Insight’s Nimbra Platform Chosen for Live Production Feeds for IAAF Athletic World Championships in Korea

The Nimbra platform will be used for onsite and OB van live contribution with 100 per cent QoS

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has been chosen, through its partner SanAm Technology, as the preferred technology provider for live video production feeds for IAAF Athletic World Championships in Korea. 

With a long history of success in live contribution for sporting events including, but not limited to, the FINA World Championships this year, The FIFA World Cup 2010 and the 2008 Beijing Olympics – the Nimbra platform is the ideal solution for live sporting events requiring a real-time and lossless transportation solution to produce and distribute live feeds with 100 per cent quality of service (QoS).

The Nimbra 680 will be placed onsite at the master control room and event presentation room and live streams will also be distributed to and displayed on the big screen in the arena without delay.  The Nimbra 340-HD will be used to distribute HD-SDI feeds from the finish photo room to the OB (Outside Broadcast) production vans.

The Nimbra solution was chosen based on its capabilities as a complete end-to-end multi-service platform with carrier-class reliability and unique protection mechanism crucial during live transmission. In addition, it has the flexibility to deliver a high number of HD channels using only one unit.

“We really need no delay in our broadcasting system during the games,” says Mr. Sang-Bok Yoo of IAAF2011 Daegu organization, responsible for outside broadcasting. “SanAm Technology had presented us with the Nimbra platform to be able to provide real-time contribution/distribution without jitter or delay, and this is what we required.  Net Insight has already proven their stability and functionality through several international sporting events, so I appreciate and trust that this will work well for us and we can expect a very successful broadcast of the IAAF2011 in Daegu, Korea.”
