Nevion, an award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, today announced that Saarlndischer Rundfunk (SR), the public radio and television broadcaster serving the German state of Saarland, has selected and deployed Nevion media nodes and IP-routers to connect their headend to their main transmitter sites. The deployment provides a more flexible, cost effective and secure solution than the existing STM-1 microwave systems.
Nevion TVG425 media nodes now provide DVB-T2 ASI to IP conversion and vice-versa, with full dual path redundancy for protection. Nevion VS 906 media nodes provide a similar conversion for AES and E1 to IP. Nevion eMerge IP switches provide IP aggregation and routing for all IP flows, which include two DVB-T2 multiplexes, four FM programs, an ETI data stream for DAB and various E1 channels, as well as IT in-house applications.
Markus Kirst, engineer at SR, explains: Nevion and LOGIC Media have a wealth of experience in IP technology, from simple point-to-point to large distributed networks, so they were the obvious partners for this project. The solution was delivered on time, and performs exactly as we expected.
Nevion will be showcasing its digital terrestrial and other broadcast solutions in Hall 1, booth B71 at IBC 2017, in Amsterdam, 15-19 September.
