Net Insight selected to deliver a major network expansion for The Switch

Net Insight’s next-generation Nimbra platform has been selected by The Switch, a leading provider of production services and global delivery of live video, for a significant expansion of its US network. The deal will create a new 100Gbit fiber network, bringing higher capacity connectivity to key media and sports hubs in the North American market.

At the heart of The Switch’s multi-phase network upgrade is Net Insight’s award-winning Nimbra 1060 ultra-high capacity media transport platform. Highly modular and redundant, this solution allows the service provider to meet rising demand for more flexible production and distribution services, including remote production.

“The Switch is a market leader in high-quality live video delivery and live production services. We are proud that Nimbra is once again the backbone of its expanded network, extending our long working partnership,” said Net Insight CEO, Crister Fritzson. “The trend towards remote production and high capacity content services is accelerating as broadcasters, sports leagues and enterprise customers meet the demands of content-hungry audiences. The pandemic has compressed adoption timelines as major sports broadcasters, and leagues work to keep live content on air despite travel restrictions and social distancing measures. Audiences demand higher resolution content on any screen and service providers must ensure their networks are future-ready to handle their customers’ evolving needs.”

Designed to enable reliable long-distance media networking across any infrastructure, Nimbra provides a single platform for all media and network functions to manage and allocate resources more efficiently.

Robert Szabo-Rowe, The Switch’s Senior Vice President of Engineering and Product Management commented, “Net Insight’s Nimbra equipment has been at the center of our ability to deliver seamless feeds to our customers for many years. It is a key part of this latest expansion, allowing us to support a more diverse range of production models that enable broadcasters, streaming services, and other content providers to be future-proofed in today’s fast-moving market. We are excited to extend our partnership with Net Insight as we take this important step in preparing our network for the next phase in our evolution.”

The new 100Gbit fiber ring network also includes Nimbra 680 carrier-class multiservice media routers and edge compute devices.

E-Studio Invests In A Neve Genesys Black Console Posted: 17/11/2020
Finland and rsquo;s E-Studio Invests In A Neve and reg; Genesys Black Console

E-Studio, one of Finland’s leading recording facilities, has embraced the world renowned sound of Neve® by replacing the old desk in its main control room with a large Genesys Black G80 console.

Located in the beautiful rural surroundings of Sipoo, just 30 minutes’ drive from the centre of Helsinki, E-Studio often attracts large recording sessions and therefore needed a console with plenty of inputs and a high channel count. According to Jyri Riikonen, senior sound engineer and studio manager at E-Studio, the Genesys Black G80 is the ideal choice because it offers a huge 80 inputs at mixdown and 40 input channels, each with 1073® preamps for recording very large sessions.
