Case Study: Digital Rapids Encoders Power High-Profile Live Multiscreen Projects for Netherlands Public Broadcasting
*The Challenge: High-quality encoding for 24/7 live streaming for major events and linear broadcast channels *The Solution: Digital Rapids encoding systems *The Benefits: …Digital Rapids’ powerful configurability, flexibility with formats and capability to simultaneously encode to multiple codecs are also important advantages.”
(Netherlands--February 20, 2014) Nederlandse Publieke Omroep (NPO) is the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system, within which individual broadcasting associations operate. NPO arose from the country’s former practice of pillarisation, in which the various religious and social groups organized their own institutions (including broadcasting) with financial support from the government. While the system of pillarisation is largely gone, the broadcasting associations themselves have remained active, sharing common facilities and infrastructure. These associations share three national television channels (Nederland 1, Nederland 2, Nederland 3), six radio channels and an online offering. NPO is financed from government grant-in-aid payments raised from general taxation; income from on-air advertising; and a small portion of dues paid by members of the broadcasting associations.
