OVERVIEW

Requirements for distribution over cloud networks

Network distribution platforms

Deliver content to distribution partners or affiliates over IP cost-effectively compared to traditional network distribution platforms (e.g., satellite).

Robust transport services

Ensure robust and resilient transport services to all destinations with stream protection mechanisms.

Advanced transport monitoring

Monitor active services end-to-end with advanced transport monitoring.

Vendor independence

Vendor and technology independence in networks, media appliances, transport protocols, and cloud deployments.

Simplify operations

Simplify operations to manage and distribute content to partners and affiliates with a unified solution to control users, services, and remote appliances.

CHALLENGES

What our technology solves

Provide high-availability transport services on par with traditional distribution solutions as satellite and fiber


Ensuring complete monitoring with clear demarcation of services for distribution partners and affiliates.


Utilize existing infrastructure and gear towards affiliate and Head end distribution.


Optimize the cloud infrastructure in a highly competitive market.

1

Fully integrated encoder available for the best quality control – Nimbra 400

2

Connect with any third-party equipment that connects with any ARQ protocol

3

If ARQ protocols are not available, download free connection software – Edge Connect

4

Protect valuable content with 2022-7 or failover protection

5

All feeds orchestrated in Nimbra Edge between different rightsholders and production entities

6

Handle multiple channels in parallel, where each customer manages its stream dashboard. They can easily control and monitor all live feeds.

7

Deploy on any cloud platform, whether in private, public, or hybrid environments. The multi-region feature reduces latency for dispersed events while effectively reducing bandwidth across remote destinations

8

NOC operators can easily monitor each live event with advanced end-to-end monitoring tools that substantially reduce the maintenance and operational time.

BENEFITS

How our solution solves your transport problems

Provide quality service

Live media cloud routing with a reliable encrypted video transport as well as multiple protection alternatives, and a resilient infrastructure as well as comprehensive protection alternatives

One touch end-to-end management

Remotely control appliances and create routing services in seconds, all with an intuitive interface with advanced end-to-end live monitoring tools with clear demarcation

Use your existing infrastructure

Easily integrate your appliance in Nimbra Edge and take full advantage of their capabilities in the cloud interop with your current third-party services using the RESTful API.

Lower cloud costs

The highest cost for cloud distribution is cloud egress costs. Nimbra Edge allows for implementation in any cloud in any combination (e.g., public and private cloud). This flexibility allows for planning and optimizing cloud resources as egress, making larger implementations more cost-effective.

Powerful built-in features

Synchronized playout to simultaneously deliver your content to all destinations and multiple stream protection capabilities.

Expand your business

Reach new opportunities and market segments where expensive traditional technologies cannot compete.
