Nobeo chooses Digital Rapids

German production services provider nobeo has deployed Digital Rapids’ StreamZ Live adaptive streaming encoders for live streaming production both within nobeo’s studios and in the field with nobeo’s new @-car compact production vehicle.

Based in Hürth, Germany, nobeo provides studio production, outside production and post-production services, including a fleet of mobile control units and HD outside broadcasting vans. With the development of the new @-car compact production vehicle, nobeo has moved into offering broadcasting for event and business TV as well as live online streaming.

One StreamZ Live encoder is deployed in the @-car for live productions from the field, with additional StreamZ Live units in nobeo’s internet TV studios for producing live online shows. The encoders convert live high definition source feeds into multiple output streams in a variety of resolutions, bit rates and formats for live OTT delivery as well as creating VoD assets. The most recent systems were acquired through Digital Rapids reseller sono.

“The Digital Rapids systems meet our expectations perfectly and are straightforward to use. In live situations in particular, it is extremely important to be able to rely on the technical components fully and entirely,” said Guido Amann, CTO at nobeo GmbH. “Alongside the technological benefits, it is worth highlighting the excellent support we have received. We wish more products were like this — being simple to use and accompanied by excellent support from the manufacturer.”

“A rapidly growing number of outside broadcast service providers are capitalising on the audience-expanding opportunities of multiscreen delivery and producing dedicated online and mobile experiences directly in the field,” said Clive Vickery, Managing Director, EMEA and Asia at Digital Rapids. “The unmatched flexibility, comprehensive feature set and robust reliability of our StreamZ Live encoders make them ideal for meeting the rigorous demands of live on-site production environments, and we’re pleased that nobeo has chosen our solutions for their operations both in-studio and in the field.”
