Nevion adds to France Télévisions’ monitoring capabilities
Virtual media production infrastructure specialist Nevion has supplied a host of probes to France Télévisions in order to enhance the country’s public national broadcaster’s monitoring capabilities. The TNS 4200 probes are cost-effective devices for monitoring video-centric networks at various locations and have been deployed at every main France Télévisions location across the country.
As part of the project of migration to MPEG4 in France, the TNS4200 monitoring probes were supplied to France Télévisions by Nevion’s French partner Euplink following a competitive RFQ process. In addition to being used to monitor the DTT feeds of France Télévisions, the TNS4200 probes also monitor the regionalisation of the third national channel at every main regional station.
Nevion’s monitoring probes match the broadcaster’s requirements in terms of technology capabilities, measurement quality, and integration with the regionalisation ecosystem.
“This project with France Télévisions really cements Nevion’s presence in the French market and adds to the long list of customers we have in the region for our monitoring products, including Ericsson, GlobeCast, and TV5. It’s almost a clean sweep of the media landscape in France,” says Geir Bryn-Jensen, CEO, Nevion.
As well as helping secure the deal with France Télévisions, Euplink also acted in an advisory role to the broadcaster. The company provided extensive training to staff with the initial deployment of probes at the broadcaster’s head office, before completing the rest of the installations across the country.
