Net Insight AB: Net Insight Hands Remote Production Capabilities to Denmark's TV 2 For Live Sports Coverage

To support cost-effective production of live handball content for Danish
state-owned broadcaster

Stockholm, Sweden

- Net Insight, the provider of live, interactive and on-demand media
transport, today announces
that, in conjunction with Danish partner Borch Teknik A/S, the company's media
transport solution has been deployed by Denmark's TV 2 to expand coverage of
live handball matches to meet the rise in demand for the sport in the
country. The state-owned broadcaster is using Net Insight's Nimbra solution
to enable remote production of live content in a highly cost-effective and
profitable way.

To satisfy growing viewer demands for sports, broadcasters are tasked with
cost effectively and efficiently transporting live, high-quality content
across networks. The main obstacle to achieve this in the past has been
technology, which has been limited by the use of many legacy interfaces, and
limitations in network capacity that has driven the use of heavy compression,
creating longer delays and lower video quality. These long delay times have
made it difficult to remotely control cameras and the feedback loop has been
too slow for producers to work with fast moving content. With the unique
low-latency compression capabilities of Net Insight's media transport
solution, TV 2 has overcome these challenges and is able to produce more
content with fewer resources.

Net Insight's solution means less equipment and personnel are needed on site
to cover live events, which not only saves time and money, but also frees up
precious resources that can be employed elsewhere to create more live content
and generate new revenue streams.

TV 2 can now use smaller vans on site, instead of fully loaded outside
broadcast (OB) trucks, while maintaining the highest-quality production and
deliver live handball match content to
TV 2's central broadcast facility, while ensuring the lowest possible
end-to-end delay.

"Handball is one of the most popular sports in Denmark, so there is a great
interest for viewing this," says Henrik "BOB" Frederiksen Head of Production
TV 2/SPORT. "Net Insight enables us to conduct parallel productions at
different handball arenas across Denmark with lower costs and fewer
resources, allowing us to provide our audiences with more live handball
matches with the highest possible quality. The solution is also used for
other sports events as well as the recent Danish general election"

"As the live events industry flourishes, driven by greater demand, changes in
viewing behavior, and the search for new revenues, our media transport
solutions are perfectly matched to deliver on the challenges broadcasters
face in live event productions, both now and in the future," says Fredrik
Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. "Our TV 2 implementation is another great
example of how our solutions are helping broadcasters achieve their live
event goals."
