ADI and Nevion join forces for Premiere League [DigitalProductionME.com]
(DigitalProductionME.com Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ADI, media services supplier, has hired media management specialist Nevion to help it deliver content over its 'Live Venue' platform, a new fibre broadcast network linking Barclays Premier League and Sky Bet Football League clubs with global rights holders, federations, broadcasters and fans.
Live Venue provides incredible opportunities for clubs, federations, broadcasters and rights holders, adding value throughout the production process. The platform offers greater immediacy and flexibility, allowing HD content to be repurposed for multiple uses and delivered instantly to numerous global locations.
It is for these reasons that ADI has chosen to partner with Nevion, opting for its JPEG 2000 solution, using its Ventura VS901 platform over a Juniper network, to enable multiple streams of HD content to be routed instantly and reliably with virtually no loss of quality.
Under the terms of the partnership, Nevion is manufacturing its JPEG 2000 codec in conjunction with ADI to support the features on its Live Venue service.
Nevion is also supplying its VideoIPath managed media services platform to control its cards and the Juniper switch fabric to provide connectivity and inventory management. The solution enables the deployment of multiple HD or SD video feeds over a combination of 1 Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet circuits.
Geraint Williams, chief executive of ADI UK, said: "As part of the agreement, Nevion and ADI will continue to work together on new firmware and software to fully exploit the collaborative and innovative Live Venue service as we develop this platform in the coming years."
Nick Pywell, managing director of Nevion UK, added: "By bringing together Nevion's video transport expertise and ADI's R&D capability and client base, we can deliver a unique product to English football clubs that is quick to set up, flexible and extremely reliable."
