Level 3 Communications, Inc. Announces the Launch of Video Cloud Services

Level 3 Communications, Inc. announced the launch of Level 3's Video Cloud Services, a cloud-based solution that moves, stores and delivers broadcast and Internet video on a global scale. Content companies require the transfer of massive amounts of video content and data -- in a variety of formats -- to locations and devices around the world. This process can be complex to manage, resulting in production efficiency losses, missed deadlines, poor user experience and ultimately, unrealized revenue. Level 3's Video Cloud Services combine 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 a full suite of IP-based video services 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 Communications, Inc. Teams with Elemental Technologies to Conduct First Real-Time 4K Stream of Sony Content in MPEG-DASH Using HEVC Video Codec

Level 3 Communications, Inc. announced that it has teamed up with Elemental Technologies to conduct demonstrations of the world's first real-time 4K Ultra HD video stream in MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) using high-efficiency video coding (HEVC). With four times the resolution of 1080p HD, 4K video content presents a challenge to traditional compression approaches such as MPEG-2 and advanced video coding (AVC /H.264) in terms of the bandwidth required to deliver a smooth and immersive viewing experience. The HEVC implementation allows for delivery of 4K content at bitrates equivalent to HD content, and pairing it with MPEG-DASH, enables a universal adaptive bitrate streaming solution that works on any platform. Level 3's content delivery network provides the performance and scalability required to transmit the 4K video, which will be encoded and packaged by Elemental. The combination of these technologies gives programmers and pay-TV operators a turnkey, scalable way to deliver 4K content simultaneously to millions of viewers across the globe.

Level 3 Communications, Inc. Announces Construction of New Undersea Cable in Colombia

Level 3 Communications, Inc. has announced the construction of a new undersea cable, connecting Colombia to its international network. The terrestrial segment of the cable in Colombia is being constructed in conjunction with Empresas Municipales de Cali, or EMCALI utilities services company in Cali, Colombia. The new subsea route ensures that Colombia's International connectivity will be enhanced by the addition of a Pacific submarine cable connecting Colombia and removing the reliance on traditional connectivity via the Caribbean Coast. Level 3's new submarine cable will create an efficient alternative route to meet the country's increasing demand for reliable and secure communications services using a new and unique landing point. Consequently, Cali will be in a position to become a development hub for the region being an inland city with direct international connectivity via the new undersea cable.
