Level 3 Communications Inc. is touting its new Video Cloud Services platform as an alternative to managing content delivery, broadcast and Internet video, and storage in-house.
The new Video Cloud Services suite handles all aspects of the video 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 self-service analytics and reporting.
Letting Level 3 handle these requirements gets rid of problems such as missed deadlines and poor user experience, Level 3 said.
"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."
