Media organizations and enterprises need to meet the increasing demand for exciting live content experiences while also driving efficiencies through remote production, distributed workflows and flexible delivery networks. The Nimbra Edge platform is built on open standards. It supports all major industry re-transmission (ARQ) standards (RIST, SRT, Zixi), enabling service providers to deploy any mix of private, hybrid or public cloud network while also avoiding being locked into any particular vendor. Support for open standards also means that streams can be handled in any format, simplifying operations and making it easy to work with existing equipment investments.
By integrating the Nimbra and Aperi platforms directly with Nimbra Edge, Net Insight offers a complete range of agile and secure media delivery solutions for cloud, IP and virtualized networks. This makes it easy for broadcasters, service providers, production companies and enterprises to create frictionless, high-quality, low-latency live video workflows using the perfect networks for their needs.
Nimbra Edge is a fully open, intelligent platform for ingesting and delivering any live media stream, in any format, securely to multiple destinations across any IP network. The new features deliver unmatched performance, interoperability and reliability:
- Flexibility: Nimbra Edge includes an open API for creating seamless communication with any external service. This gives maximum flexibility to integrate with existing management systems for automatic network control. In addition, built-in authentication makes it easy for rights holders, content owners and service providers to directly publish and monetize live content in the cloud.
- Enhanced monitoring for performance excellence: Transparency lies at the heart of robust and reliable networks; service providers need access to precise information about the services running on their network at all times. Users need to know that they can depend on IP networks, especially when replacing satellite distribution. Nimbra Edge automatically measures the resilience, success and quality of streams to reduce troubleshooting time and ensure uninterrupted viewer experiences.
- Built-in synchronization for remote and distributed workflows in the cloud: The Nimbra Edge system enables automatic time-stamping and stream alignment of live inputs from multiple cameras in any location. This makes it simple to keep video perfectly in sync across all destinations, removing any video skipping, lip sync errors and misaligned camera angles without the cost and complexity of using GPS antennas.
