Net Insight Wins significant contract in Deal with Austria’s national public service broadcaster Österreichische Rundfunksender (ORS); Net Insight to offer highly scalable and efficient solution that uses ORS’s underlying IP infrastructure to distribute DVB-T2 signals nationwide throughout Austria

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Net Insight (OMX Stockholm: NETI B), a leading provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces a contract with ORS (Austrian Broadcasting Services GmbH & Co KG), to distribute DVB-T2 signals across Austria. ORS is solely responsible for the construction, operation and maintenance of the terrestrial transmitter network, digital satellite transmission and is the only company in Austria in charge of the country’s national DTT distribution.

The agreement, sealed through Net Insight’s partner TV-Connect Broadcast Systems GmbH, will offer a highly scalable and efficient solution that 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. Net Insight’s Nimbra 680 high-capacity MSR will enable efficient and secure multicast through out the network.

“Prior to our decision we have performed tests of the Nimbra platform in our test environment”, says 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,” says 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.”
