Oxnard, CA, 10 April, 2012 – Nevion, the leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide, will showcase advances in its Ventura VS902 universal IP access platform and a new VS906 contribution codec for IP at NAB (booth SU2019). Together they provide easy, efficient migration to video-over-IP services.
