Consumers today expect to watch premium video content anywhere, anytime and on any device, and nimble broadcasters have responded by offering programming over the internet, and through traditional terrestrial, cable and satellite networks. Because delivering over-the-top (OTT) video services and traditional linear television services require diverse technical solutions, meeting consumer demand proves challenging for both broadcasters and service providers alike.
Nevion, a market leader in the broadcast industry for over twenty years, has partnered with Elemental to provide a joint solution that empowers both broadcasters and service providers to manage OTT and digital video broadcast (DVB) distribution.
Nevion specializes in the real-time transport and processing of video and audio over both traditional and IP networks. Nevion’s award-winning management system enables broadcasters and service providers to control and monitor media networks with ease – from production to distribution.
The joint Nevion-Elemental solution enables a unified headend for digital video broadcast (DVB) over cable, satellite, or terrestrial networks, along with IP-based OTT services. The unified headend combines Elemental Live, Elemental Statmux, and Elemental Delta products together with Nevion’s media network management system and Nevion’s software-driven media node platform. This joint solution can be combined with Nevion’s multi-format media transport-over-IP capabilities to move content quickly, reliably and in a unified manner over a software-defined network (SDN) from contribution to distribution.
With Nevion and Elemental, broadcasters and service providers have a future-proofed solution to deliver premium video content to global consumers.
