Award caps a year of success for Nevion’s media gateway.
Nevion, a leader in transporting media from the camera to the home, today announced that its NX4600 H.264/AVC media gateway received a product innovation award from NewBay Media.
NewBay Media’s Product Innovation Award, launched in 2013, recognizes excellence in manufacturing of products to serve the TV/pro video and radio/online audio industries. Winners are selected by a panel of professional users and evaluation criteria include innovation of concept and design, creative use of technology, price value, and suitability for use in a broadcast TV/pro video or broadcast/online radio environment.
Nevion’s NX4600 is an H.264/AVC encoder, decoder and media gateway all built into one. With its high density (up to 4 encoders or decoders in a 1RU form factor), it is specifically designed for applications, such as sports or news broadcast contribution, where multiple high quality video streams need to be transported reliably and with very low latency on network connections that have relatively constrained bandwidth.
“We are obviously delighted that our NX4600 has been recognized in such a way,” said Johnny Dolvik, Nevion’s Chief Product and Development Officer. “We introduced this product just over a year ago, and since then we have had a tremendous amount of success, with it being picked up by a number of leading broadcasters including ARD/ZDF.”
A pioneer in media transport, Nevion provides network and broadcast infrastructure to broadcasters, telecommunication service providers, government agencies and other industries. It enables the transport and management of professional-quality video, audio and data – in real time, reliably and securely – from the camera to the home.
From content production to distribution, Nevion solutions are used to power major sporting and live events across the globe. Some of the world’s largest media networks are built on Nevion technologies, including AT&T, Arqiva, BBC, BT, CCTV, EBU, TDF, Telefonica, Telenor and NASA.
