Project involved replacing both headend and regionalization equipment
Nevion, a Sony Group Company and award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, announced today that it has provided equipment and services to NEP to update the headend and regionalization for the Norwegian DTT network, which it provides as a service.
After a thorough evaluation, NEP picked Nevion’s CP524 TS Adapter as main and spare equipment to provide input switching (based on SMPTE ST 2022-7), multiplexing, DVB-T adaptation (MIP insertion), IP to ASI conversion and monitoring (TR 101 290 priority 1). The Nevion solution delivered also provides seamless switching with relay protection.
The solution takes the main multiplexed input feed from two different sources, selects and creates the regional feeds which are then forwarded over fiber to 10 different regions for transmission. The redundancy built into the solution provides resilience, ensuring transmission is not compromised should any part of the flow be disrupted for any reason.
“We know Nevion’s reliable products & solutions within the DTT segment very well. The Nevion CP524 in particular provides a perfect solution for Transport Stream processing for regionalization with multiple SFN adapters in a single unit. We look forward to continue delivering DTT in Norway with the help of Nevion’s solutions”, says Janis Jansons, Director Technology & Operations, Media Services at NEP Norway.
“As a leader in the provision of DTT solutions, we are delighted to have been able to help NEP achieve its business goals with our high performance, resilient and proven equipment”, concludes Hans Hasselbach, Chief Commercial Officer at Nevion.
