NAB 2023: Net Insight, Globecast Bolster Global Strategic Partnership with Latest IP Deployment
Net Insight’s Nimbra 1060 has been selected by Globecast to help enable the company’s continuing transition from SDI to an IP-based infrastructure after its move to its new Westlake Village Studios facility in Los Angeles, CA. This is the latest in a series of implementations enabling Globecast and its customers to transition to next-generation IP workflows.
Earlier this year, Globecast teamed up with Net Insight to expand its European fiber backbone – part of the company’s global fiber network GCBN – to 100G to meet increasing bandwidth requirements. Net Insight’s Nimbra 1060 delivered the core processing capability Globecast needed to ensure maximum quality via very low latency and the tight synchronization of feeds which are essential in edge processing for remote production.
Globecast’s Westlake Village Studios facility leverages Net Insight’s Nimbra 1060 platform to harness unparalleled scalability, flexibility, and reliability for Globecast’s media transport operations. The platform is designed to support IP-based workflows, providing integration with virtualized and cloud technologies. This partnership will enable Globecast to expand its service offerings and empower its customers to drive cost and operational efficiencies. Globecast anticipates completing the move to Westlake Village Studios by the end of Q1 2024.
“We’re excited to be part of Globecast’s transition to a next-generation IP-based media ecosystem,” said Net Insight CEO Crister Fritzson. “IP opens the door to operational efficiencies and monetization opportunities for media operators and content providers. Our flagship solution is well-versed to enable industry players to innovate and get ahead of the curve.”
“We have been working closely with Net Insight to empower industry players’ seamless and efficient transition to IP-based workflows,” said Chris Pulis, CTO at Globecast Americas. “IP and cloud technologies define the future of media. The advanced capabilities and robust performance of Net Insight’s solutions will help us achieve greater service elasticity and operational efficiency, ensuring we continue to meet the highest quality standards for our customers.”
Last year, France Télévisions leveraged the Globecast and Net Insight technology partnership to replace its legacy media contribution and distribution solution and manage permanent and occasional contribution feeds between local studios across nine territories and eight press agencies.
