Broadcast Television transport experts Nevion are expanding their UK development and support team and facilities within IM at Adastral Park, BT’s Global Engineering and Research Headquarters.
Nevion is a key global supplier of Broadcast Video & Audio transport technology – with a significant market share and involvement in broadcasting across the whole world. Nevion in headquartered in Norway and employs 180 people globally. Of this, currently there are 16 people employed by Nevion in the UK, at Adastral Park and the UK sales office in Reading. It has other sales & support offices in California, Dubai, Singapore, China and a global dealer network of 120 companies.
Nevion has 3 global development centres – two in Norway and one in the UK, at Innovation Martlesham, Adastral Park. Nevion is currently expanding its development and support centre within Innovation Martlesham and have recently taken on new space to accommodate an expanding team. Nevion are currently recruiting for new positions to be based at Adastral Park in both the technology development and support areas.
Innovation Martlesham is an established cluster of high-tech ICT companies located at Adastral Park. Besides being home to a diverse range of large, medium and small companies, Innovation Martlesham is a ‘collaborative ecosystem’ for technology companies.
Being part of the Cluster is a strategic decision for Nevion. The location ideally places Nevion’s UK technology experts close to one of their major UK customers, BT and close to several other technology solution providers and partners such as Juniper & Cisco. In addition, it provides further benefits of exposing Nevion’s technology.
At Adastral Park, Nevion is focussing the development effort on evolving its solutions for media transport over IP. Recent evolution has included capability for the transport of 4k video and multichannel audio transport. Nevion is a leading innovator in uncompressed and compressed transport of video and audio over IP networks.
Industry networking is critical for the Nevion technology team and the benefits of campus co-location are significant. Even the non-planned informal lunch-time rendezvous with other companies on site are extremely beneficial!
Recruitment is an area that Nevion hopes to benefit from moving forward with a shared knowledge of potential candidates interested in technology jobs in this area. There have already been benefits from being part of the Innovation Martlesham ICT Cluster and collocating at Adastral Park, with Nevion recruiting a good graduate candidate that BT had seen but been unable to offer a role to. It is hoped that a more structured process in this area will facilitate benefits in recruitment moving forwards.
