MediaKind and Net Insight unveil end-to-end distribution solution

Tech providers MediaKind and Net Insight have teamed up to build an end-to-end cloud-first IP video distribution system for broadcasters and video distributors, aimed to address the rapid shift from traditional broadcast contribution and distribution technologies to IP and the Cloud.

MediaKind’s products are further strengthened by integrating Net Insight’s Nimbra Edge, which provides users an end-to-end distribution capability to ingest efficiently, route, process, and distribute live content in high quality with low latency and in various formats.

The combined solution delivers stream protection with end-to-end encryption and state-of-the-art authentication, authorisation, and auditing capabilities.

Nimbra Edge is a cloud-native platform for IP media workflows with a solid foundation on reliability and resilience while providing seamless usability and an open solution in terms of cloud deployments, transport protocols, and third-party integrations.

The joint solution integrates MediaKind’s RX1 professional receiver-decoder and CE1 cloud-ready contribution encoder with the Aquila Live cloud-based processing and delivery head-end, supplying a reliable method for broadcasters and event producers to transmit video from live event venues to the cloud.

According to the company, MediaKind Aquila Live guarantees the highest quality of live video, supporting MPEG-2, H.264, HEVC formats, and all standard streaming and broadcast protocols. Aquila Live is available as software, hardware-accelerated appliance, or public and private cloud instance to accommodate diverse deployment scenarios.

Boris Felts, chief product officer, MediaKind commenting on the deal said: “We are excited to announce our partnership which combines Net Insight’s Nimbra Edge with MediaKind’s Emmy award-winning Aquila Live head-end and RX1 and CE1 edge processing platforms. Together, we are accelerating the migration to cloud video processing and all IP video distribution.”

“Our two companies aim to enhance and simplify customers’ live video workflows and content delivery, leveraging cloud-native technologies and our combined expertise,” added Per Lindgren, Group CTO at Net Insight. “This partnership will further strengthen the market position for both MediaKind and Net Insight.”
