The play-out of Nonstop Television’s channels Star!, Silver, Showtime and TV7 for the Nordic market is relocated to Levira’s play-out facilities in Tallinn, Estonia.
Play-out and multimedia service provider Levira and NonStop Television have extended their cooperation that started in 2007. From September 2nd 2010, the play-out of four of NonStop Television’s Nordic channels: the action movie channel Showtime, entertainment news channel Star!, quality film channel Silver and female oriented entertainment channel TV7 was relocated to Levira, which holds one of Europe’s most modern play-out centres.
Levira is providing full play-out services including ingest, QC, scheduling, play-out, monitoring, archiving and delivery of ready to broadcast signal to destination networks.
Levira is a fast developing technical service provider for broadcasting, multimedia and telecom industries. Levira’s fully automated, multichannel play-out centre was commercially opened on September 1st 2007. Currently 14 services are aired from Levira’s facilities in Tallinn and distributed over the Baltic, Scandinavian, Benelux and South-African markets.
“We are truly pleased to work with a dynamic and progressive partner like NonStop Television”, says Mart Einpalu, CEO of Levira, “The cooperation has been both demanding and rewarding. Levira’s play-out is interconnected with the most strategic locations in Europe allowing Levira to move on with our existing and new customers to all European markets, enabling broadcasters to play out, localise and distribute their content to different local networks and platforms.”
Levira and NonStop Television started their cooperation in 2007 when NonStop Television’s first HD channel Silver HD for the Nordic market went live from Levira’s facilities. Until now, Levira played out six channels for Nonstop. The current agreement is another milestone for both parties demonstrating a fruitful cooperation.
”We’ve had a great collaboration with Levira so far and we look forward to strengthen our relationship as we now also move our Nordic channels to their play-out facilities”, Says Ignas Scheynius, CEO at NonStop Television.
