Net Insight wins ‘significant order’ from global media services provider for remote production
Net Insight has announced that a global provider of media services has selected Net Insight’s remote production as a service offering to support the distribution of sports content for a broadcaster in Asia.
Net Insight’s remote production solution will help ensure media transport with unparalleled quality and reliability over the global media services provider’s network. The solution will be used in production and distribution of live sports broadcasting.
The order value is around US$1m and includes products as well as services. A first delivery to upgrade the backbone network took place in the third quarter and the remote production as a service delivery will take place during the fourth quarter.
“We are excited to deliver high quality live sports remote production to TV viewers in Asia,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “By choosing our remote production solution, the broadcaster can focus on bringing the best sports content to the viewers and use production equipment more efficiently from a central facility instead of being tied up during transport between venues.”
The concept of remote production, or at-home production, is being rapidly adopted worldwide. Reduced costs, more content in the archives, more efficient use of talent and more efficient use of central studio resources are just some of the reasons why the industry is quickly embracing this concept.
Remote production benefits from economies of scale, meaning that the benefits are greater the more venues you can serve with centralized production. This fits Net Insight’s Nimbra platform very well since one of the hallmarks of the platform is to globally transport media with low latency and zero packet loss, a key enabler for the remote production concept.
