ProSiebenSat.1 turns to Flashlink technology for Munich site connectivity
ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion, a subsidiary company of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group, has selected Nevion Flashlink transport technology to connect its sites in Unterföhring, on the outskirts of Munich, Germany. Using the Flashlink Compact optical transport, signal processing and distribution solution, ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion has full connectivity between three central equipment rooms via a fibre network. The project was overseen by Nevion partner Logic Media Solutions, who also run Nevion’s customer service center in Germany.
The highly solution enables ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion to transport realtime high quality video between three networked central equipment rooms reliably, with low latency, high density and operational ease.
“Flashlink was the winning solution for this project due to its cost efficiency, density and its compact size,” said Thomas Grünwald, solution architect, Playout Systems at ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion. “The small footprint of the Flashlink Compact fibre interfaces is significant because of limited rack space at one location.”
“Working with our partner, Logic Media Solutions, we’ve been able to deliver a Flashlink solution that gives ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion critical high fibre utilisation, transport capabilities and scalability,” said Thomas Heinzer, head of strategic projects at Nevion. “Once again, Flashlink’s proven technology has been recognised by a leading broadcaster, making it the preferred method of transporting professional-quality media across a fibre infrastructure in real time.”
