The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) has turned to Türk Telecom, which in turn enlisted the help of Net Insight and, specifically, the company’s Nimbra 1060 terabit transport platform, for a centralised video assisted referee (VAR) system.

Net Insight was able to demonstrate the transport of 22 video feeds from one location, and the capacity to handle the same volume of traffic from nine locations concurrently – all within a 50mls round trip.

“The Nimbra 1060 enables terabit networking for an all-IP media future, providing assured and agile WAN transport of media services,” said Olle Waktel, VP of sales at Net Insight. “Scaling network capacity to levels unheard of in the media industry while providing high levels of flexibility and guaranteed service quality, the Nimbra 1060 makes it easy to bring IP-based services such as SMPTE 2110 across wide area networks for doing anything from HD and UltraHD/4K live productions to remote and distributed productions.”

The solution – including the Nimbra 1060 – went live in time for the opening of the 2018 – 2019 top flight Super Lig season.
