15 APRIL 2009 -- Net Insight says its Nimbra platform has been selected by TeliaSonera International Carrier to support live sport broadcast transmissions of Sweden's premier football league, Allsvenskan.

TeliaSonera is incorporating Net Insight's Nimbra platform into its contribution network to transport uncompressed standard-definition video from all 16 arenas in the Swedish league to a central production and editing facility in Stockholm.

"Sweden's largest football league and its fan base rely on us to provide an optimal viewing experience for all televised games. We wouldn't trust this transport task to anyone other than Net Insight," says Jonathan Wood, head of media services at TeliaSonera International Carrier. "Since 2006, we have trusted our most rigorous and important media network transport to Net Insight based on the unmatched quality and flexibility that the Nimbra platform offers for live, uncompressed video to exceed the most stringent customer demand."

TeliaSonera International Carrier has added both the Nimbra 360 and Nimbra 680 switches to the network, designed for the transmission of digital video and advanced multimedia services in broadcast and media networks.

Net Insight's Nimbra equipment was delivered during the first quarter of 2009 and the network was fully operational in March 2009 in preparation for the 2009 season.
