Net Insight to showcase 4K video transport solution

Net Insight, a provider of scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, will demo its solution for lossless 4K Ultra HD video transport at IBC.

The Sweden-based firm will demonstrate how broadcasters can start to migrate to 4K Ultra HD transport over commonly-available 1GE and 10GE connections using Net Insight’s Nimbra 600 MSR series and its JPEG2000 modules.

The modules can run all uncompressed SDI and ASI video formats, ranging from ASI to 3G-SDI, per port configurable, according to Net Insight – which first demoed uncompressed 4K video streams over a public transport network at IBC back in 2007.

“Today, broadcasters are looking to ramp-up their 4K production, bringing added value and higher quality content to customers, however, live 4K content increases the demand for network capacity to four times 3G-SDI, which is 12 Gbps. This does not fit well with today’s service provider infrastructures based on 1GE and 10GE connections, thus broadcasters are limited to non-linear workflows and file-based distribution, which effectively excludes them from live 4K Ultra HD contribution,” said Net Insights.

“Now, with high-quality JPEG2000 compression, which is the only technical and commercial enabler for live 4K Ultra HD contribution available today, broadcasters can efficiently transport live 4K Ultra HD content over these connections while maintaining image quality and low latency.”

Net Insights will exhibit at IBC on stand 1.B40.
