NAB 2019: Brazil’s Rede Amazônica Picks Nevion for IP Migration in Multiple Facilities
Nevion (Booth SU5510), award-winning provider of virtualized–media-production solutions, has announced a deal, signed at NAB 2019, under which it will deliver an IP-based solution for a number of facilities at Rede Amazônica, one of Brazil’s largest broadcasters and a Globo Grupo affiliate. The principle objectives for Rede Amazônica are to renew its infrastructure and decrease operational costs.
Facilitated by Nevion’s business partner and Cisco partner Asccent do Brasil, the deal involves Cisco Nexus 9000 switches; Nevion’s Virtuoso software-defined media nodes; VideoIPath orchestration and SDN control; and CP-Touch control panel.
The Virtuosos will provide the SDI-to-IP (SMPTE ST 2110) adaption and dual-path signal protection (SMPTE ST 2022-7). VideoIPath will be used to orchestrate the flows from sources to destinations. CP-Touch will be the interface used by the production staff.
The first phase of the solution will go live in September.
Rede Amazônica CEO Phelippe Daou Junior said, “We are looking forward to becoming one the first broadcasters in Brazil to make the move to IP in the facilities. We believe this will bring us a greater flexibility in production that will enable us to deliver on our mission to get closer to the people by delivering ever more relevant and compelling content to our viewers.”
Hans Hasselbach, chief commercial officer, Nevion, added “We are very pleased to be adding Rede Amazônica to the rapidly growing list of broadcasters who have picked Nevion to help them make the move to IP. It is also very exciting to be able to sign the deal on our booth at the NAB show!”
