Level 3 Communications announced, at the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters Show, the recent launch of Level 3's Video Cloud Services.
The service is a cloud-based solution that moves, stores and delivers broadcast and Internet video on a global scale. It combines Level 3's content delivery, video broadcast and cloud storage capabilities to create a more scalable, secure and streamlined approach to global content distribution.
Level 3's Video Cloud Services are designed to support content delivery throughout its life cycle, from signal acquisition to delivery to viewers. Services include live Vyvx broadcast video acquisition, encoding and transcoding, global delivery via the Level 3 CDN, as well as comprehensive, self-service analytics and reporting.
"Level 3 has collaborated with many content-driven companies, and the one recurring theme we keep seeing is that these companies want a one-stop-shop for high-quality video transfer and storage – for both traditional and online media," said Mark Taylor, vice president of Media and IP Services at Level 3. "Level 3's Video Cloud Services simplify every aspect of video delivery, giving our customers the performance and global reach they need to not only deliver an unparalleled video experience, but also realize cost efficiencies."
