Net Insight Nimbra Platform Helps Germany’s MTI Teleport Distribute Coverage of the Handball World Championship
MTI Teleport is Germany’s media backbone operator connected to all major broadcasters, media houses, venues, and distribution platform operators. They own and run Nimbra-based media contribution networks from Net Insight and recently expanded the network, mainly in Denmark, for the handball championship.
In Germany, the competition took place across all four points of the compass – in the north, in Hamburg, in the east, in Berlin, in the west, in Cologne, and in the far south, in Munich. In Denmark, matches were played at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning and in Copenhagen, at the Royal Arena.
All handball venues in Germany and Denmark were connected and all video, audio, and data feeds were transported over the Nimbra platform delivering highest quality broadcasts to sports viewers all over the world.
The qualified handball teams were from the host countries, Germany and Denmark, the reigning world champions France as well as teams from the continents, Africa: Tunisia, Egypt and Angola, Asia: Qatar, Bahrain, Japan, Korea and Saudi Arabia, Europe: Spain, Serbia, Iceland, Russia, Hungary, Austria, FYR Macedonia, Sweden, Norway and Croatia, and from Pan America: Argentina, Brazil, and Chile.
“The Handball World Championship has been a great success and our media network has performed excellent,” says David Müller, director, sales & product management, MTI. “We rely entirely on Net Insight’s innovative technology for all major live sports events.”
Other sports leagues that run over MTI Teleport’s Nimbra-based networks are the German Football Bundesliga 1 and 2, the Basketball league, the Ice Hockey league, and the Handball league. Other sports events such as Champion league games also run over MTI Teleport’s networks. The Austrian Football Bundesliga runs over MTI’s media network based on the new terabit capacity router Nimbra 1060.
