Live sports coverage: NEP UK and Imagine Communications to partner

As the demand for high-definition coverage of live sports continues, NEP UK has worked with Imagine Communications to deliver this increased level of quality to their viewers. Imagine Communications has supplied multiple Selenio Network Processor (SNP) appliances to NEP UK, the UK division of the media technology partner for content creators around the globe.

NEP UK installed the SNPs in four of their largest outside broadcast trucks, in order to provide a seamless, automated workflow for delivering 4K and UHD, HD, standard (SDR) and high dynamic range (HDR) signals.

NEP UK provides facilities for the leading sports broadcasters in the UK, who are increasingly offering UHD coverage as an option for subscribers. At the same time, they have to maintain the highest quality HD output possible to serve the majority of viewers. In the high-pressure, live environment of premium sports, it is vital to have a simple and automated workflow to provide multiple outputs from the truck with a minimum of user intervention.

The SNP is a software-defined IP and SDI signal processing device. Each 1RU device features four independent processing blocks, each of which can adopt personalities defined by the software. Applications are available on individual licenses, so users can define the exact functionality they require and reconfigure their SNPs as tasks demand ― making them particularly suited to outside broadcast work. NEP UK has ordered a mix of licenses for signal format conversion including HD, 3G, and 4K, as well as dynamic range conversion between SDR, HLG, PQ and Slog3.
