Net Insight AB: SIS LIVE has Selected Net Insight for Transport of Live HD Premier League Football Content

Media transport solution deployed at English Premier League football stadiums
LAS VEGAS - NAB 2015 booth SU4321 - At NAB today, Net Insight, a leading
provider of efficient and scalable transport solutions for media, IP and
broadcast networks, announces that the company's media transport solution has
been deployed by SIS LIVE, one of the UK's leading broadcast connectivity
experts, to transport live content from English Premier League football
matches for aggregation at its MediaCityUK hub in Salford.

As broadcasters look to transport live sporting content across networks with
increasingly higher quality, they face greater challenges in doing so
efficiently, both in terms of time and cost. In addition to this
industry-wide issue, SIS LIVE faced the unique challenge in looking for
further flexibility in switching circuits and a need for increased visibility
from a network management perspective. The company's NOC (Network Operations
Centre) team needed these features to ensure SIS LIVE responds to faults
effectively and efficiently.

To help SIS LIVE address these challenges and achieve greater efficiencies,
the company has deployed Net Insight's Nimbra 600 series media switch routers
(MSRs) across English Premier League football grounds for JPEG2000 encoding
and decoding of live content over a 1G link. The Nimbra MSRs are being used
to take live feeds from each English Premier League stadium to the SIS LIVE
MediaCityUK hub over a dedicated IP network for aggregation, enabling editing
of live content and create its programming, in both standard definition and
high definition (HD). SIS LIVE is also using Net Insight's Touch&Switch
technology, which offers a simple and intuitive way to connect ports and
switch Nimbra services using a touch-screen or PC application.

"When choosing a solution we looked at a number of alternatives but none
compared to Net Insight's offerings. We required a solution that not only
offered end-to-end visibility in the network but also on every single
service, with the ability to switch from any port to another, so Net
Insight's Nimbra was the clear choice based on its service centric
properties, ease of use and operational simplicity," says Dave Gill, Head of
Solutions at SIS LIVE. "We're also making really efficient use of our
bandwidth too, through Net Insight's Nimbra Touch&Switch solution, enabling
us to turn circuits on and off when necessary, while both ourselves and our
customers are delighted with the quality achieved, the rapid response to
pulling circuits up and the increase in visibility and management of the
network."

"We are aware of the changing requirements of service providers and
broadcasters as they look to transport live media content in a variety of new
formats, with high QoS and in a profitable way. This deployment with SIS LIVE
stands testimony to that and once again demonstrates our strength in
delivering the right solutions that clearly match, and go beyond, the needs
of our customers," says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight.

Net Insight was awarded the SIS LIVE project in November 2014 and was able to
get the majority of stadiums on net within a three-week period, with the
first stadiums going live within a few days of installation.
