Level 3 Streams Presidential Debates

Fox Interactive Media (newscorp.com/management/fim.html) has selected fiber-based communications provider Level 3 Communications (level3.com) to deliver video acquisition, transport, encoding and live streaming for all four of the 2008 US presidential debates online. According to Level 3′s announcement last week, the company’s Content Markets Group delivered live video of Friday’s debate in Oxford, Mississippi at mydebates.org presented by MySpace (myspace.com), also a division of NewsCorp (newscorp.com). Level 3′s video broadcast services will be used for the remaining three debates as well to redundant broadcast encoding centers and Fox Television affiliates. The company’s broadcast encoding centers encode the video feed in real-time and then oversee distribution via its content delivery network for live streaming with Adobe Flash.
