New Nevion protection, distribution and multiplexing at IBC
Sandefjord, Norway, September 6, 2012 –Nevion, the leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, comes to IBC (booth 8.B90) with new additions to its robust fiber transport portfolio and an enhanced perfect protection switch, simultaneously decreasing risks and increasing flexibility for broadcasters.
“Patented technology for our perfect protection switch bases decisions not only on disrupted signals but also on the quality of the primary and backup transport streams,” said Svein Håvard Haugen, director of engineering at Nevion. “We’ve applied the same principles of smart engineering to our fiber products, wrapping in multiple functionality for more scalable and flexible solutions.”
Nevion’s Flashlink fiber portfolio transports all major broadcast signal formats, including 10G, with comprehensive time division and wavelength division multiplexing, providing the longest 3G-SDI reach in the industry over dark fiber and unmatched fiber transport bandwidth. For even more scalable and flexible systems, customers can use passive optical products, saving capital expenditures by deploying exactly what’s needed at any given time. Supporting this capability is Nevion’s new ETH1000-SW-10G, a six-port IP switch with five 1G electrical IP ports and one 10G optical IP port for short, mid and long haul optical interfaces, as well as CWDM. The 10G-TR, a new optical transponder for 10G IP or SDH/SONET signals converts from short haul optical formats to long haul or CWDM formats.
Nevion’s VS7700 dual-channel intelligent perfect switch provides unmatched protection for DVB-ASI and SDI video streams across any network infrastructure—IP, SONET/SDH or fiber. Compensating for up to one second of differential delay, the switch guarantees signal quality, zero outages, and no disruption of service.
Moving beyond video transport to fully managed and controlled video networking, Nevion manufactures award-winning systems for broadcasters, service providers and government agencies worldwide. Highly modular solutions encompass IP and optical transport, state-of-the-art compression and routing for any video format over any network infrastructure—within buildings or across continents. With the industry’s greenest and most scalable products, Nevion preserves quality while delivering video from content acquisition through distribution. By creating new service-offering opportunities or minimizing costs, Nevion enables its customers to move, manage and monetize video content. World headquarters in Sandefjord, Norway, with U.S. headquarters in Oxnard, California; Nevion also maintains offices in Oslo, Chicago, London, Dubai, Beijing and Singapore. www.nevion.com.
