Nevion's Post-Production Gateway Powers Sohonet's ClearView Remote Creative Collaboration Solution

OSLO, Norway, March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nevion, a leader in transporting media from the camera to the home, today announced that it is supplying its post-production media gateway solution to Sohonet, the connectivity and data management services expert. Sohonet will use Nevion's TVG480 within its new ClearView fully managed, high quality remote collaboration solution.

ClearView allows users, primarily within the media and entertainment industry, to stream the highest quality video in real time for editing, color grading, digital intermediate and approvals. The remote collaboration solution uses Nevion's TVG480 post-production gateway for real-time transport of HD and 2K video over an IP network, enabling directors and colorists to see the same accurate and consistent colors and image quality, regardless of their individual location.

The TVG480 takes advantage of the unmatched quality of JPEG 2000 compression to deliver professional-quality, low-delay video across IP in signals including HD, stereoscopic 3D and 2K that are traditionally used in digital cinema production. The compact, powerful and cost-effective solution carries multiple compressed video channels and has built-in features for Quality of Service (QoS) such as Forward Error Correction and error concealment.

"We have already successfully used Nevion's Gateway products for our customers' remote color grading and we were keen to extend this relationship to our new ClearView service where quality, reliability and low latency are crucial," said Chuck Parker, Executive Chairman at Sohonet.

Nevion's Vice President of Sales for the UK, Nick Pywell added, "Remote collaboration is something that a lot of media and entertainment companies are investigating, and a solution like Sohonet's ClearView offers creative, time and cost benefits to users. Nevion's post production gateway is ideally suited for this application as it lets users take advantage of IP as a cost-effective way to transport professional quality media without limitation."

In January, Nevion received a Technical and Engineering Emmy® award for its role in the standardization and productization of JPEG 2000 (J2K) interoperability. The company will showcase its latest network and broadcast infrastructure solutions on stand SU2615 at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas.
