NEP The Netherlands Migration to IP

The Customer

NEP The Netherlands, part of the NEP worldwide network, is one of Europe's leading providers of innovative video technology and broadcast IT solutions. It comprises a portfolio of products and services focusing on the production, distribution, management and exploitation of content through television and digital media. Its capabilities include operating multiple production studios, a fleet of OB vehicles, post production facilities, operating a media asset management platform, content delivery and OTT services and its own dark fiber telecommunications network and data centers.

The Challenge

NEP The Netherlands identified various challenges in the marketplace which gave them valuable reasons for starting Cloud Production. Changes in viewers behavior due to OTT platforms such as Netflix; lower budgets of public broadcasters; fast changing schedules of broadcasters including change of set, venue and change of formats; environmental issues; quality improvements (HDR, 4K UHD) and the requirement for the improvement in the quality and uptime of service needed for IT equipment in OB vehicles on remote locations is proving difficult.

The Grass Valley Solution

NEP The Netherlands invested in Sirius 850 routers, Kahuna production switchers with modular control panels and IQ modular infrastructure to deliver both its day one requirements and enable its migration to full IP routing in the future.
