Net Insight has announced a contract with ORS (Austrian Broadcasting Services), to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria.
ORS is in charge of the country’s national DTT distribution.
The agreement, sealed through Net Insight’s partner TV-Connect Broadcast Systems will use ORS’s underlying IP infrastructure to distribute DVB-T2 signals nationwide. The network will deliver multi-services such as HD-content as well as audio/radio signals over the same platform.
“Prior to our decision we have performed tests of the Nimbra platform in our test environment”, said Mr Jezek, project manager at ORS.
“The test result showed that the Nimbra platform, thanks to its QoS and service integrity features, improves the performance of the underlying IP infrastructure”
The first phase of the rollout is based on more than 40 Nimbra 680 nodes and will begin in the third quarter of 2012. The roll-out of the DVB-T2 network will continue during 2013 and 2014.
“We are delighted that ORS has chosen Net Insight’s solution to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria,” added Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight.
“As the only company in Austria responsible for national DTT distribution, ORS’s choice of our products is a real quality stamp and proves that Net Insight maintains a leading position in the DTT-market.”
