NEP picks Nevion for Norwegian DTT network equipment and service update
NEP has chosen Nevion to provide equipment and services to update the headend and regionalisation of the Norwegian digital terrestrial television (DTT) network, which it provides as a service.
After a thorough evaluation, NEP picked Nevion’s CP524 TS adapter as main and spare equipment to provide input switching (based on SMPTE ST 2022-7), multiplexing, DVB-T adaptation (MIP insertion) and IP to ASI conversion and monitoring (TR 101 290 priority 1).
The solution takes the main multiplexed input feed from two different sources, selects and creates the regional feeds which are then forwarded over fibre to 10 different regions for transmission. The redundancy built into the solution provides resilience, ensuring transmission is not compromised should any part of the flow be disrupted for any reason.
Janis Jansons, director of technology and operations, media services at NEP Norway, commented: “We know Nevion’s reliable products and solutions within the DTT segment very well. The Nevion CP524, in particular, provides a perfect solution for transport stream processing for regionalisation with multiple SFN adapters in a single unit. We look forward to continuing to deliver DTT in Norway with the help of Nevion’s solutions.”
Hans Hasselbach, chief commercial officer at Nevion, added: “As a leader in the provision of DTT solutions, we are delighted to have been able to help NEP achieve its business goals with our high performance, resilient and proven equipment.”
