Video transport technology specialist Net Insight has been chosen by Telecom Italia Media Broadcasting (TIMB) for a contribution network.
TIMB, a Telecom Italia Group company, operates terrestrial TV networks in Italy over which its own and third party digital and analogue TV channels are delivered.
Net Insight’s Nimbra platform will transport media between studios and sites in Rome and Milan using JPEG2000 technology for video compression. The order also includes Nimbra Vision, a network management system for status and performance monitoring of Nimbra-based networks.
“We chose Net Insight from a Quality of Service perspective and the fact that it is a one integrated solution, easy to implement and use”, said Crescenzo Micheli, chief technology officer at TIMB. “We were also impressed by the performance of the JPEG 2000 compression solution over our existing network as well as the performance monitoring capabilities of the infrastructure.”
