Net Insight, a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has announced that Switzerland’s national public broadcaster SRG SSR has selected a range of solutions from Net Insight for a major winter sports event in Russia 2014 and the Zurich 2014 European Athletics Championships.

SRG SSR is building a new dedicated contribution network for forthcoming major sporting events, including a winter sports event in Russia in 2014 and the Zurich 2014 European Athletics Championships. The network is based on the Net Insight Nimbra 600 series and is fully redundant, offering audio and compressed video services.

With the Nimbra platform in place SRG SSR is prepared to transport the highest quality live content with the level of reliability required by the Swiss people. The Nimbra MSR solution ensures uncompromised QoS in media networks and is specifically aimed at meeting the rigorous 100% QoS and content integrity demands of the professional media industry. The solution also offers SRG SSR full flexibility and enables rapid response to new network requirements.

”This implementation for SRG SSR and the two exciting sports events in 2014 confirms our strength in building relationships with existing customers, and delivering on our promise of a guaranteed quality of service in live broadcasting,” says Anders Persson, executive vice president and interim CEO at Net Insight.
