NEP Builds the World’s First IP Multi-Camera Production Platform for TV

Global media technology company NEP enables its clients to produce the world’s biggest events, from the Oscars to the Olympic Games. NEP The Netherlands delivers some of the company’s most advanced services, and sought to transform its traditional broadcast SDI systems to IP.

Converting to a cloud-based IP environment would allow NEP to scale TV and video content cost effectively, and upgrade to future-generation technologies easily. Moreover, IP had to meet the high quality and extreme demands of a broadcast environment, processing massive amounts of uncompressed data with zero tolerance for latency.
To build out its content delivery network (CDN), NEP deployed T4000 and T1600 core routers over its fiber, distributed across three privately owned data centers for redundancy. Pre- and post-production runs in a cloud environment using high-density QFX5100 switches to support applications that move hundreds of gigabits of uncompressed video. NEP standardized on Juniper gear from backbone to campus to security.
Using Juniper solutions, NEP built the world’s first IP multi-camera production platform for TV, and has created 750-plus productions and delivered peak-time TV for millions of viewers faster and cost effectively. NEP will continue to innovate and deliver the latest-technology services with ultra-high broadcast quality and reliability TV viewers expect.
