STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Net Insight, a leading developer of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and broadcast networks, today announces that Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC), public broadcaster for the Republic of Cyprus, will use Net Insight’s Nimbra platform when it launches the island nation’s first high definition services via a new, national Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) distribution and contribution network.

Cyprus public broadcaster launches digital servicesfor the first time using Net Insight’s Nimbra technology

The DTT network scheduled to launch by the end of 2010 will be the transport network for all DTT services, including radio, across Cyprus. It also will supply High Definition contribution services in a JPEG 2000 format from regional studios back to the main site in Nicosia. The transport network covers 11 main transmitter sites and four reporter sites. The Nimbra 680 will be the core node, located in Nicosia, offering the ultimate in distribution and contribution flexibility when paired with switches from the Nimbra 300 series at the transmitter and studio site nodes. This form of distributed network architecture is fast becoming the de facto standard for new DTT network designs.

Net Insight received the order in close cooperation with local partners JD Dynamic and EMR.

“After an extensive evaluation process, we have selected the Nimbra platform as the top choice for delivering the national DTT network” says Mr Grigoris Maliotis, Director of Technology at CyBC. “Net Insight’s proven successes in media transport made them an ideal choice to help build the next generation of our video network.”

The new network will guarantee 100 percent QoS in distributing video services across Cyprus, provide scalable multicast capabilities and a single distribution and contribution switched network.

CyBC will manage the entire network through Net Insight’s Nimbra Vision network management
platform, which offers additional security and provides easy provisioning.

“As the leading broadcaster in Cyprus, CyBC will be able to implement digital transmissions to
its customers using the Nimbra platform,” says Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight.
“This order is another confirmation of our DTT solution leadership.”
