Verizon Launches Live Events Broadcast Service

Verizon launched a Live Events service that can acquire event feeds from any source -- including satellite, terrestrial fiber and Internet -- then transcode and deliver the content to broadcasters and other commercial customers. The service also provides proactive monitoring and robust redundancy over Verizon's global network.

The service, which is offered through an exclusive agreement with Origin Digital, a premier video-streaming company, is aimed at broadcasters and over-the-top content providers.


Verizon said its Digital Media Services contributes to the over-the-top video competitive landscape in the U.S. by offering seamless, end-to-end solutions that greatly reduce the complexity of digital content management through simplified operational processes and a fully transparent supply chain.

"There are no second chances when it comes to live events," said Bob Toohey, president, Verizon Digital Media Services. "Verizon Live Events combines depth of experience, market-leading technology and exceptional reach to create memorable experiences for viewers watching their favorite live events. This combination offers a single solution for a wide range of live events -- from multinational sporting events to breaking news and business meetings to concerts and red-carpet premieres."

Verizon Live Events service joins the video-on-demand and linear channel services also offered on Verizon's video-optimized media platform.
