Architects of virtualized media production reflect on continuous reinvention
Oslo, Norway, 1st October 2021 – Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, is today launching the celebrations for its 25th anniversary, marking a quarter of a century of reinvention which has seen the company remain at the forefront of innovation within the broadcast sector.
Founded in 1996, Nevion has achieved a number of firsts over the years, including revolutionizing broadcast routing with the first compact routing switcher, providing innovative IP media networks, and creating the first IP broadcast production facility with fully virtualized resources.
A pioneer in bringing IP to the facilities since 2015, Nevion has a proven track-record of developing cutting-edge technology, including its flagship software-defined products Nevion Virtuoso and VideoIPath. As well as developing award-winning software, for the last two years, Nevion has played a vital role in the groundbreaking 5G VIRTUOSA project, funded by the European Union to explore the potential of 5G in broadcasting.
Its reputation as a leader in innovation has led to Nevion’s solutions being deployed in virtually all major live events globally, and used by major broadcasters, production companies, telecom services providers and government agencies.
Further testament to Nevion’s unrivalled innovation is its 2020 acquisition by Sony Imaging Products & Solutions Inc.
Thomas Heinzer, founder and CEO, Nevion, commented, “The broadcast sector has seen a lot of change over the last 25 years and we have been at the forefront throughout. I put our longevity down to our ability to continuously reinvent ourselves and to be truly innovative in our use of technology, and this ethos will continue to guide us moving forward. I’m excited to see what the next 25 years have in store and have no doubt that we will continue to go from strength to strength.”
