Juniper Supports Broadcast Company's Ability to Deliver Next Generation, Cloud-Based TV Production Services
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - April 24, 2017) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced that NEP The Netherlands, world leading media technology specialist, is using Juniper Networks' high-performance solutions to create the world's first IP multi-camera production platform for TV. The company is now expanding that platform further by adding more applications on air, with more flexibility, efficiency and in the best quality. Juniper Networks® QFX Series switching technology was chosen by NEP to deliver innovative television services, including 4K video on demand, interactive split screen and 360-degree virtual reality. NEP provides the technology, people and know-how that enables its clients to produce high-profile television events, such as the Oscars and Olympic Games.
Transforming its production systems from a traditional broadcast Serial Digital Interface (SDI) environment to future-proof, cloud-based open IP platforms enable faster service delivery, lower total cost of ownership, and more flexibility for NEP and its clients. For example, cloud-based production enables flexible deployment of key directing elements, such as the director's control room, audio, video and EVS operator at the studio site.
"We needed a cost-effective technology that met the extreme demands of the broadcast environment where massive amounts of data are processed with zero tolerance for glitches or delays. Juniper understood our motivations early on and worked with us to achieve our goal so that we could deliver a quality experience to our clients." Gerbrand de Ridder, head of research & development and lead system architect at NEP The Netherlands
"The modern broadcasting industry is evolving very fast, and innovative companies like NEP are making the leap to a cloud production platform that helps its customers keep ahead of the technology curve. Because NEP invests in the most advanced technical infrastructure to underpin its broadcast innovations, its customers' viewers can have the highest quality TV experience."
