Net Insight has expanded its Nimbra 600 series of multiservice routers (MSRs) with the introduction of the Nimbra 640, a scalable media access gateway for media transport over IP networks. The announcement was made Friday at IBC 2012 in Amsterdam.

Net Insight’s latest addition to its Nimbra 600 platform enables management of quality of service (QoS) of bi-directional video and Ethernet transport. This ability, coupled with integrated support for high quality, low-latency JPEG2000 video compression, makes the Nimbra 640 ideal for live event contribution and remote production, the company claims.

Other applications for the Nimbra 640 Media Access gateway includes primary DTT-distribution, IPTV/cable-TV distribution, and studio interconnect.

Per Lindgren, vice president, business development and co-founder of Net Insight, said, “Introducing the Nimbra 640 to our established range of Nimbra MSR’s is great news for operators and broadcasters that really want to simplify live event contribution and remote production.”

The Nimbra 640 is built on the existing Nimbra 600 platform for QoS-enhanced media transport. It shares such features as lossless routing, QoS-enhanced links, and service-centric network management. The new product is the company’s first Nimbra 600-based gateway specifically designed for access applications.

Net Insight has also unveiled a new smart form-factor pluggable transceiver-based (SFP) Video Access Module for the Nimbra 600 series. Equipped with intelligent SFPs, Net Insight’s MSRs take another step towards integrating more advanced video processing functionality into the company’s Nimbra 600 video transport platform.
