NRWision Case Study: Making Live TV over the Internet Possible

NRWision, a community TV station serving the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, used a filebased system for the first nine years of operations, to upload non-live content created in the studio over an internet connection to a playout server in Unitymedia's network operation center (NOC). While NRWision had been part of Unitymedia's channel line-up for quite some time, it was not able to broadcast live over the internet.

This may sound strange given the fact that NRWision has 1 Gb/s connections to the desktop and - as a university - has a high-speed direct access connection to the Internet backbone. However, NRWision realized that high-speed internet connection is not enough to ensure successful live broadcast.
