MONTREAL, March 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Aldea Solutions Inc., the premier provider of high-quality video networking services throughout Latin America, today announced that it has completed the deployment of Net Insight's Nimbra platform to deliver enhanced video services throughout its network. Aldea's network now enables broadcasters and producers throughout the Americas and Europe to distribute live high definition television content, such as major sports leagues, to millions of viewers in Latin America.

Lionel Bentolila, CEO of Aldea Solutions commented "We are pleased to partner with Net Insight to bring cutting edge technology to the video marketplace. Our key requirements included quality of service for video applications, bandwidth efficiency and flexibility to adapt to diverse networking topologies and architectures.

Aldea has expanded its fiber capacity by a factor of four with the use of Nimbra technology, and introduced a range of new media and data services to support expanding HD broadcasting and the increasing use of file-based workflows.
