13 MAY 2009 -- Net Insight (search Lightwave for Net Insight) has received an order from DR in Denmark for a contribution network for video and Ethernet services.

Net Insight's Nimbra platform will be used to link eight different sites in Denmark. The network will be based on the Nimbra 680 to provide efficient transport of video with guaranteed 100% QoS at high bandwidth utilization levels.

"Net Insight offers a secure and stable contribution platform that handles both video and data traffic between DR's District and DR Byen", says Lars Sorner, project manager at DR. "In the long term DR will also use the platform to integrate all the audio connections for radio."

The order was received in cooperation with Broadcast Service Danmark (BSD), which has operated a digital terrestrial TV distribution network in Denmark since 2006 based on the Nimbra platform. BSD is a wholly owned subsidiary of the two Danish public service broadcasters DR and TV 2/DANMARK and is responsible for the analogue and digital distribution of TV and radio in Denmark. BSD will deliver operations support to DR.

The Nimbra equipment will be delivered in the second quarter 2009.
