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.
