German MTI Teleport has selected Swedish media technology company Net Insight for the creation of a media network for pay-TV broadcaster Sky Austria.
The new media network connects 12 football stadiums throughout Austria with Sky Austria’s premises and MTI Teleport’s network operation centre for live coverage of Austrian Bundesliga games. The network delivers uncompressed video and data services via 10Gbps links enabling distributed workflows and synergies for rights holders and production facilities, according to Net Insight.
The order was won together with Net Insight’s partner SHM Broadcast, and the network went live in July 2018.
MTI Teleport choose Net Insight’s next generation terabit router Nimbra 1060 with NFV oriented architecture, providing network transmission of all-IP media services. The router manages traditional media services as well as IP-based media services such as SMPTE 2110 across wide area networks, interconnecting event sites, stadiums, studios and production sites.
Other sports leagues running over MTI Teleport’s Nimbra-based networks include the German Bundesliga, Basketball league, Ice-Hockey league and Handball league. It is also used for UEFA Champions League games.
