82% of broadcasters expect TV content access via 5G to forge ahead of traditional methods

According to a recent global survey of broadcasters, 82% believe that cellular networks like 5G will eventually replace traditional broadcast distribution like DTT/DTV and satellite as the preferred way to access TV content, with over a third (37%) of these respondents expecting this to begin happening within 1 to 2 years.

The survey, conducted on behalf of Nevion, the architects of virtualized media production, discovered that 10% still anticipate that it will take more than three years for 5G to overtake traditional services but the vast majority (94%) of broadcasters agree that 5G will likely increase the consumption of content.

5G-Virtuosa project completes initial technical IP-based studio set-up

The participants of 5G-Virtuosa, the EU-funded project exploring 5G and virtualization in broadcast production, announced today that the first technical step of the initiative has been completed at Nevion’s Service Operations Center (SOC) in Gdansk, Poland. The step involves the integration of multiple products from various vendors, with most of the work done remotely because of the COVID-19 situation.

The purpose of the EU project VIRTUOSA is to explore “Scalable Software Defined Network Architectures for Cooperative Live Media Production exploiting Virtualized Production Resources and 5G Wireless Acquisition”. In practical terms, this means demonstrating through real-life examples how 5G can be combined with virtualization concepts to enable broadcasters to produce live content (such as sports or music coverage) more efficiently and cost-effectively across locations, to meet growing consumer demand.

TV 2 virtualizes support and monitoring of IP media network operations with Nevion Service Operations Center Posted: 06/05/2020
Norway and rsquo;s TV 2 virtualizes support and monitoring of IP media network operations with Nevion and rsquo;s Service Operations Center

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, announced today that TV 2, the largest commercial television broadcaster in Norway, is using Nevion’s Service Operations Center (SOC) to provide proactive support and monitoring of its IP media network operations.

Having moved to IP production in 2017 with Nevion’s help, TV 2 initially chose Nevion’s advanced remote services, in order to leverage the expertise and experience of the SOC’s staff, and focus on its own core-competencies, including content creation. When the COVID-19 crisis developed, TV 2’s decision to virtualize the support and monitoring of its IP media network operations proved to be invaluable as very few staff would have been able to be on-site to maintain the network.

Nevion enables Synterra Media to broadcast live concerts in 4K during COVID-19 closures

 

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has announced its flagship Virtuoso software defined media node with TICO compression technology is allowing Synterra Media, the Russian provider of telecom services for TV production, broadcasting, and entertainment media businesses, to broadcast live events in Ultra HD (UHD/4K) as part of its Home Season project. The project is enabling Russia’s cultural community to continue to entertain audiences online despite its institutions being forced to close their doors to visitors to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Home Season online project was opened by classical pianist Denis Matsuev, whose performance of Tchaikovsky’s “The Seasons”, as well as of jazz compositions, was broadcast to more than 1.5 million viewers in Russia – 1,000 times the capacity of the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow. Since then, the Moscow Philharmonic Society has been conducting live broadcasts of concerts to a virtual audience.

The project has marked the first use of Nevion Virtuoso with TICO compression technology in Russia, providing a 4:1 compression of UHD/4K signals for transport over IP networks with virtually no delay.

Stay and ldquo;At Home with the Architects and rdquo; for Nevion and rsquo;s Alternative Broadcasting Show

In light of this year’s NABShow being cancelled, Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has announced it is hosting its own online event. Nevion’s Alternative Broadcasting 2020 show initiative, called “at home with the Architects”, will offer attendees as close an experience as possible to that which Nevion had been planned for the original show but in the comfort of their own homes.

Taking place from 20th to 24th April, the week planned for the NABShow, the event will comprise virtual meetings and webinars to help organizations to realize the full potential of IP in the facilities, remote production, contribution and terrestrial distribution.

The experience will offer attendees the opportunity to meet online with Nevion’s “Architects of Virtualized Media Production” to find out about best practices for the move to IP, hear about real-life case studies, see virtualized live demos and interact with Nevion’s product managers and executives. They will also have the chance to hear more about Nevion’s strategic partnership with Sony.

Nevion will also run a series of webinars, which will extend beyond the event’s run, covering a variety of business and technical subjects, and will be sharing information about the latest enhancements to its flagship products VideoIPath (orchestration and SDN control software) and Virtuoso (software defined media node).

Nevion helps Al Kass Sports Channels transition from SDI to IP Posted: 07/04/2020
Nevion helps Al Kass Sports Channels transition from SDI to IP

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has announced Al Kass Sports Channels, a public broadcast service provider of information and sports entertainment programming in Qatar, has chosen Nevion’s flagship products VideoIPath and Virtuoso to connect its main facility with three other broadcast facilities across the country through a flexible IP-based media network infrastructure.

Previously, the channels had been exchanging media between Qatar Television (QTV), Al Bidda Tower in Corniche and BeIn Sports using microwave links. To support enhancements to the quality and cost-effectiveness of transmission, Al Kass Sports Channels required a state-of-the-art, scalable and flexible switching infrastructure that would support its eventual migration to higher resolutions and an all-IP environment.

Initially, the new solution would provide reliable ultra-low latency IP transport for uncompressed and compressed HD-SDI, DVB-ASI, intercom and data between the sites over a ring network topology. However, it also needed to be ready to handle 4K/UHD, HDR and SMPTE ST 2110 to support Al Kass’s plans. 

The Virtuosos are used for the in real-time IP adaption and transport protection for video, audio and data, and also to provide encoding and decoding capabilities for both HD and 4K/UHD video feeds, while VideoIPath manages and orchestrates the complete network.

Nevion reports record year as shift to IP in broadcasting intensifies Posted: 26/02/2020
Nevion reports record year as shift to IP in broadcasting intensifies

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has announced that 2019 was a record year for the company with sales orders up 52% compared to the previous year.

In addition to this, software and services now represent almost half (48%) of Nevion’s sales. This is a significant increase from 2014 when software and services represented just 16% of the company’s sales – underlining the move from dedicated hardware to software-defined IP solutions. This shift is further illustrated by the fact that two-thirds of the hardware being sold by Nevion is now IP equipment.

In 2019, Nevion provided workflow-transforming solutions, products and services to over 150 customers in around 50 countries. One of the ground-breaking projects delivered was for the organization behind the League of Legends (LoL) esports tournament, Riot Games who used Nevion’s software-defined media node Virtuoso with JPEG XS for part of its remote production of the LoL World Championship Final. 

One other highlight of 2019 for Nevion was signing a strategic partnership with Sony Imaging Products & Solutions Inc. (“Sony”), in the area of IP-based solutions for broadcasters and other industries. As part of the deal, Sony acquired a minority stake in the company through a share purchase agreement making it a leading investor in Nevion.

As a leader in its field, Nevion also spearheaded the VIRTUOSA consortium which received a €2 million grant from the European Commission in 2019 to explore 5G and virtualization remote production.
