Denmark: Net Insight expands TV 2 coverage

August 18, 2015

Net Insight, a provider of live, interactive and on-demand media transport, has announced that, in conjunction with Danish partner Borch Teknik A/S, the company’s media transport solution has been deployed by Denmark’s TV 2 to expand coverage of live handball matches to meet the rise in demand for the sport in the country. The state-owned broadcaster is using Net Insight’s Nimbra solution to enable remote production of live content in a cost-effective way.

Net Insight’s solution means less equipment and personnel are needed on site to cover live events, which not only saves time and money, but also frees up resources that can be employed elsewhere to create more live content and generate new revenue streams. TV 2 can now use smaller vans on site, instead of fully loaded outside broadcast (OB) trucks, while maintaining the highest-quality production and deliver live handball match content to TV 2’s central broadcast facility, while ensuring the lowest possible end-to-end delay.

“Handball is one of the most popular sports in Denmark, so there is a great interest for viewing this,” says Henrik “BOB” Frederiksen Head of Production TV 2/SPORT. “Net Insight enables us to conduct parallel productions at different handball arenas across Denmark with lower costs and fewer resources, allowing us to provide our audiences with more live handball matches with the highest possible quality. The solution is also used for other sports events as well as the recent Danish general election”
