Zayo Launches Live Video Service for Broadcasters

Zayo launched a Live Video service to provide customers in the broadcast, production, video distribution, sports and live event industries with video local loops for point-to-point live video, managed video and distribution network for long haul video delivery, and occasional use events for short-term turn up of live video.

The core video network, which extends throughout the U.S. and U.K., is owned and operated by Zayo. It provides customers with direct access to a single solutions provider, with a high degree of control and connectivity to key destinations, gateways, on and off ramps, customer sites and venues. These video exchange points are reached via Zayo’s core video network with infrastructure in eight key markets: Atlanta, Chicago, D.C., Denver, Houston, Portland, New York and London.

“Zayo’s long haul network and supporting infrastructure enables our customers to access hundreds of ‘on-net’ venues including stadiums, production and conference centers, hotels and casinos – making our service highly flexible and competitive,” said Walt Banfield, technology lead for Live Video. “Our deep fiber assets, combined with our new video technology and 24/7/365 monitoring, give customers unlimited broadcast and streaming video opportunities.”

The video network is managed by Zayo’s dedicated Video Network Control Center located in Tulsa, Okla.
