Net Insight, a provider of scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, has revealed that Rostelecom, a new customer, has selected the company’s Nimbra platform for live video transport feeds for the forthcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi. Rostelecom will transport live video feeds from Sochi to Moscow during the event.
Rostelecom is a nationwide telco and the largest universal communications operator in Russia, serving more than 100 million subscribers in 80 regions.
“Rostelecom will deploy Net Insight’s Nimbra platform in order to serve our customers’ contribution needs during the upcoming sporting event,” says Igor Kachalov, senior specialist, service TV and radio company department at Rostelecom. “The Nimbra platform not only provides a highly stable JPEG2000 compression solution but also ensures advanced protection mechanisms. These benefits in combination with Net Insight’s and Kontur-M’s professional services were imperative in selecting the Nimbra platform.”
