Challenges

Broadcasters are constantly challenged to create more and better content with their investments, and a crucial part of the end-to-end chain is the cost of transport. Traditionally, the choices have been split across two main options. Satellite which is great for distribution of content to a large number of receivers where they all want the same thing, and dedicated fiber or leased line services where there is a lot more flexibility but often coupled with a much higher price tag.

With cloud resources for live workflows rapidly moving from fantasy to reality, getting content to and from cloud environments becomes an integral part of broadcasters live workflows. Therefore, understanding how to realize this new network paradigm becomes imperative. Today, there are several different options ranging from RIST and SRT to proprietary solutions and they all have their strengths and weaknesses.

Our Solution

Connectivity over the internet comes with high continuous loss and is prone to both loss and occasional link failures. To mitigate high continuous loss and provide lossless broadcast quality transport over these types of infrastructures, reactive and repairing technology such as RIST and SRT can be applied. In certain cases, when the connection is of good quality forward-error correction (FEC) can also be used. To handle link failures, technologies like hitless protection and bonding of multiple connections can also be applied. These technologies can be paired with FEC or retransmission.

Net Insight’s solution to transport professional content over public infrastructures is not only award-winning, it’s praised again and again by our customers. Our focus on simplifying operations through a fully integrated experience ranges from transport, to security, operational capabilities and encoding/decoding functionality. Simply put – a one-stop-shop for all your needs.

We are big believers in openness. Believers in giving you the choice of what technologies to use where and when. Believers in providing you an extensive toolbox to hide the complexity of an otherwise fragmented market. That’s why we don’t pick sides. We don’t care if you use RIST, SRT, or Zixi. We don’t care if you use AVC or HEVC. We just want you to have a simple overall experience that fully supports your business.

Reliability, resilience, redundancy, MTBF. We speak them all fluently. Depending on if you want a highly protected solution for a datacenter, or a compact and reliable solution for your customer hand-off, we’ve got the solution for you. Ranging from compact 1RU solutions, to flexible chassis-based offerings and software installations for datacenters, there is always a solution to fulfill your requirements.

Software is at the heart of what we do. In fact, it doesn’t matter how you choose to realize our solution. Standalone software in a datacenter, packaged on appliances hardware for optimized leaf sites, or as plug-in modules in our chassis-based products. It’s the same software everywhere.
