IBC 2019

Visit Norwia at IBC 2019 booth 10.C10

At IBC 2019, Norwia AS, a leading supplier of optical transport products, will showcase true hybrid solutions based on our renowned miniHUB frame concept.

With up to 32 channels of optical conversions in a single 1RU frame, customers may mix and match between any kind of baseband SDI: SD-, HD-, 3G-, 4K-, 6G- and 12G-SDI. In addition, a number of other signals like DVB-ASI, VoIP (ST2022 and ST2110), 10GigE, Audio signals (AES/Ravenna 67) and control signals (Tally/GPIO/RS-232 and RS-422) are all supported in the miniHUB frame concept. All signals may be either single channel per fiber or up to 18 channels of CWDM.

The flexibility provided gives our customers an almost endless range of possibilities for having a system design that matches their exact requirement.

Another feature that makes miniHUB unique, is the possibility of changing the configuration as the requirements change. In other words, a transition from i.e. an HD-SDI infrastructure to a 12G-SDI infrastructure may be done on a single channel basis, allowing for moderate investments over time.
Such configuration changes may be done "on-the-fly" without interrupting the daily tasks.

miniHUB is also available in a version designed for applications in extreme temperature environments. One of the largest US telco groups are using 100's of these units across the country for the transport of live sport events.

HUBbox 12G-SDI is the newest member of the small form factor family. As a stand-alone, dual channel optical converter, this is the ideal product for greatly extending the distance between i.e. a camera and the control room. It is available as a dual channel transmitter, dual channel receiver or a transceiver.

Utah Scientific, our US based partner and router/master control manufacturer, will co-exhibit with us at IBC 2019. A variety of products will be on display at our booth.

We look forward to seeing you at stand 10.C10


NAB 20192019 April 8 - April 11

NAB 2019

Visit Norwia at Utah Scientific Inc. booth# SL7616


At NAB 2019, Norwia will showcase a number of solutions based on the miniHUB Optical Transport Platform.

Supporting up to 32 optical conversions in 1RU gives the user the ultimate flexibility to configure a system to any application.

On display at the show you will find miniHUB solutions for transporting:

  • 4K / 12G-SDI
  • SMPTE2022-6 and SMPTE2110 video over IP
  • 3G / HD / SD-SDI
  • AES67 / Ravenna
  • MADI
  • 1 GB Ethernet / 10 GB Ethernet
  • and much more
Any combination of the above signals may be processed in the same frame. A variety of CWDM multiplexing solutions (4/8/12/16/18 channels) can be integrated, in order to reduce the fiber count.

For fiber redundancy, passive optical splitters are available. Best-in-class optical change-overs is used to ensure signal availability.

HUBbox MkII, the perfect partner for the miniHUB, will also be on display. The HUBbox is ideal for remote locations or as a stand-alone solution when 1 or 2 signals are required. These signals can be brought directly back into the miniHUB system for conversion and monitoring at the central location.

All products on display supports our unique AutoSFP® technology, which enables automatic re-configuration based on the SFP installed.

The NORWIA Sales Team is looking forward to guiding you through all our product offerings, and will assist you with system solutions for your applications.

NRK uses miniHUB's flexible optical transport system for their Metro Ring Network


Faced with both growing requirement for live outside broadcasting and concerns over reliability and cost of both microwave and satellite links, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation(NRK) developed a fiber ring architecture for video transport across Oslo.
The use of the innovative Norwia miniHUB solutions with its AutoSFP® cards has enabled a highly resilient and redundant transport of video and data to each node across the metropolitan fiber network.

"We can go live with just a few minutes setup and we have achieved 100% availability since launch."
- Erik Hansen, NRK
