Optical video transport equipment provider Net Insight says it has won a contract to deliver video transport platforms for use by the U.S. Library of Congress.
Net Insight will supply its Nimbra carrier-class media switch router (MSR) to support video transport to the US Library of Congress in a pilot project. The Nimbra platform will be used to transport video from the House and Senate fiber ring to the Library of Congress's National Audio Visual Conservation Center (NAVCC).
In addition to the equipment, Net Insight will provide installation, training support, and technical support to ensure continuity and compatibility with existing equipment.
The NAVCC, also known as the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation (PCAVC), is where the Library of Congress acquires, preserves, and provides access to the library’s collection of films, television programs, radio broadcasts, and sound recordings. The Packard Campus has the necessary capabilities to perform preservation reformatting of all audiovisual media formats, then store them in a petabyte-level digital storage archive. In addition to preserving the collections of the Library, the Packard Campus also provides preservation services for other archives and libraries in both the public and private sector.
