Net Insight partners with Ericsson for media contribution solutions
Net Insight, a leading provider in media transport and resource scheduling, has announced a strategic partnership with Ericsson to offer broadcasters a range of end-to-end video processing solutions based on Net Insight and Ericsson media contribution products and services. A key aspect of the partnership will see Net Insight offer H.264 and HEVC (high-efficiency video coding) capabilities to its Nimbra portfolio.
H.264 and HEVC are increasingly vital for delivery of live premium content over bandwidth constrained networks. With the Nimbra family of media service routers and video appliances, together with Ericsson’s contribution codecs, a fully managed end-to-end media contribution solution can be offered to the broadcast market, catering to the needs of live media production today and in the future.
The partnership means that Ericsson’s H.264 and HEVC solutions would be fully managed under the Nimbra Vision management system and through ScheduALL for end-to-end orchestration, workflow automation, and customer self-provisioning.
“By combining Net Insight’s Nimbra portfolio with Ericsson’s video processing portfolio, we can jointly offer end-to-end solutions for software defined, orchestrated and quality assured media processing (and delivery) that will meet the needs of tomorrow’s broadcast requirements today,” said Gall Le Garrec, head of global channel sales, Media Solutions at Ericsson.
“With full end-to-end orchestration and management through Nimbra Vision and ScheduALL, broadcasters will benefit from the operational excellence that Net Insight is renowned for,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “Together with Ericsson, we unlock the true potential of software defined media production. Automation and orchestration of end-to-end media workflows offers real business value to the broadcast industry.”
