Hibernia Media Deploys Ekinops for Optical Transport

Hibernia Media, which provides managed video transport over fiber using 100% QoS DTM (Dynamic Synchronous Transfer Mode) video transmission, has deployed optical transport equipment from Ekinops to carry uncompressed, high-definition video signals for major broadcasters and content providers, as well as other customers, at its New York City Content Exchange Center (CEC).

The Hibernia Content Exchange Center, at 60 Hudson Street, provides a secure, centralized location for content owners to deliver uncompressed, high-definition content directly to cable, direct broadcast, satellite, IPTV, and new media distributors.

The Ekinops 360 enables DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) transport, providing numerous high-capacity channels over a single fiber. The platform leverages programmable T-Chip (Transport on-a-Chip technology), which enables native encryption right on the card.

"Ekinops not only provided what we consider the best technology, but was also able to deliver an encrypted HD-SDI transmission capability quickly and cost-effectively to meet our urgent customer needs," said Del Bothof, President of Hibernia Media. "In addition, Ekinops provided superb support throughout the whole process, from sales through installation."
