Net Insight has acquired Aperi’s Live IP media virtualisation platform and software product portfolio. 

Aperi launched in 2016 and provides low-latency, software-based media processing platform for live production and transport services workflows.

The company said it had been “looking for a larger home for its product portfolio and team. As a reliable key partner and leader in the industry’s transition towards a continuously improved media experience, Net Insight is the ideal new home”.

Aperi chief executive Joop Janssen said: “The Aperi product line, with its unique low-latency V-Stack hypervisor and open App/microservices store concept, will benefit from Net Insight’s global leadership, 20 plus years’ experience in media networking and strong development track record.

“I’m very happy that the original vision of Aperi’s founders – Eugene and Brian Keane – and the engineering team will not only move forward but further prosper within the larger Net Insight group.”

At IBC2019, Aperi showcased its latest innovations in the wake of securing more than $10m in additional funding which Janssen said would “allow us to continue developing [multiple facets] of our virtualised production technologies.”

Net Insight describes itself as a “global leader in media networks and resource optimisation”. Its products include Nimbra media network transport and ScheduAll scheduling and management software.

It was one of a group of companies that won the IABM 2019 Creative Collaboration Award for its part in the remote production of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

Net Insight vice president of media networks Ulrik Rohne said: “By adding the Aperi products to our portfolio, we complement and strengthen our offering. We share the Aperi product vision of an open and virtualised software architecture and are excited to welcome the team of skilled engineers to Net Insight and to continue supporting existing and new Aperi customers.”
