Net Insight launches new Digital Audio Functionality


9/7/2006 - Stockholm, Sweden – Net Insight, the technology leader for Media and Broadcast networks, today announced the launch of the 8 x AES/EBU Access Module which allows digital audio streams at any of the standard sample rates to be transported in bandwidth tailored and secured channels. Unlike most other solutions, the Net Insight platform integrates audio transport with video and data services on any infrastructure in a complete multi-service solution. The 8 x AES/EBU Access Module is scheduled for delivery to customers during the first quarter of 2007.

The 8 x AES/EBU Access Module is ideal for use in audio production, post-production, contribution and distribution environments, where quality and availability are key issues. The solution enables transport of AES/EBU digital audio signals at various sampling rates with a guaranteed quality of service, independent of network load and topology.

The audio interface provides a transparent transport service without the need for external synchronization in order to present a jitter-free transported audio signal. The signal can also be frame aligned to a local reference and thus behave as a studio local signal. Because of the unique timing properties of a Nimbra network, it is possible to keep the buffering delay at the output to a minimum, which provides for a very low latency of the signal.

“We have seen a strong demand to transport AES/EBU both from new and existing customers”, says Fredrik Trägårdh, CEO of Net Insight. “Existing customers will be able to offer new revenue-generating audio services by leveraging their installed Nimbra networks. New customers are looking for a multiservice solution combining digital audio with video and data services and here we can offer a solution that is most probably the strongest in the industry.”

Net Insight delivers the worlds most efficient and scaleable optical transport solution for IP Media, Broadcast, DVB-T/H and IPTV/Triple Play networks.

Net Insight products truly deliver 100 percent Quality of Service with 3X improvement in utilization of bandwidth for a converged transport infrastructure. Net Insight’s Nimbra™ Platform is the industry solution for video, voice and data, reducing operational costs by 50 percent and enhancing competitiveness in delivery of existing and new media services.

World class customers run mission critical video services over Net Insight products for more than 100 million people in more than 20 countries. Net Insight is quoted on the Stockholm Stock Exchange.
