Indonesian Media Group Selects Nevion for Local Content Insertion

Indonesia’s largest media group, Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), has selected a DVB-T2 solution from Nevion, a provider of next-generation managed media transport. Having recently merged with leading digital terrestrial television (DTT) solutions provider T-VIPS, Nevion will provide remultiplexers that enable local content insertion into MNC’s nationwide DTT network, as well as comprehensive monitoring and switching solutions.

As part of its migration from analog to digital, MNC needed a solution that could handle local content insertion for different regions of Indonesia, as well as for monitoring the new network. Nevion worked closely with its partner, PT. Nera Indonesia, to deliver a high quality, flexible solution to support five regions.

“We chose Nevion solutions based on their reliability, ability to handle regional content and ease of use,” said Samuel Ang, president and CEO of Nera. “In addition, Nevion’s large install base in major DVB-T2 networks in other regions gives us a high level of confidence.”

MNC selected Nevion’s CP525 cMUX remultiplexer to enable tailoring of regional and local service packages. Part of Nevion’s award-winning family of cProcessor Transport Stream processing and multiplexing products, the CP525 provides a highly robust, cost effective and easy-to-use solution for adapting service information for regional program packages.

To provide state-of-the-art monitoring of the new network, MNC chose solutions from Nevion’s nSure monitoring and switching product portfolio, including the TNS541 seamless transport stream monitoring switch. The TNS541 switch safeguards the delivery of video content by continuously monitoring incoming transport streams and providing intelligent seamless redundancy switchover.

MNC also chose the TNS547 DTT monitor to continuously monitor Quality of Service parameters at critical points in the transmission chain. It monitors all major interfaces, formats and layers of DVB networks including transmitter input signals and off-air RF signals to simplify operations and improve network reliability.

“As the undisputed global leader in customized digital terrestrial solutions, Nevion is poised to enable operators in Asia Pacific to take advantage of new revenue opportunities, optimize bandwidth and increase revenue as they prepare to migrate to next-generation digital terrestrial television,” said Geir Bryn-Jensen, CEO, Nevion. “Customers like Media Nusantara Citra recognize that our smartly engineered and easy to use DVB-T2 solutions deliver the highest quality and reliability while minimizing risk.”
