Verizon Digital Media Services Addresses Proliferation of Viewing Devices With Premium Video Quality
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Verizon Digital Media Services as a corporate sponsor. The company offers a suite of robust end-to-end video solutions for best-in-class TV Everywhere and over-the-top experiences. Based on one of the world’s most advanced global networks with a robust video platform, Verizon Digital Media Services delivers content-management and -delivery services with carrier-grade quality, reliability, security, and scale.
“We’re lowering the barrier for our customers,” says President Bob Toohey. “We provide an end-to-end service like no one else in the market, from ingress of high-resolution, high-definition video to fulfillment. With the Verizon assets and the 100% focus on premium video, we are ready for the market and where it’s going.”
Recently, Verizon Digital Media Services announced the latest addition to its portfolio with the launch of Verizon Live Events, which joins the video-on-demand and linear-channel services also offered on Verizon’s video-optimized media network. The new service can acquire event feeds from any source — satellite, terrestrial fiber, Internet — and 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.
Verizon Digital Media Services works with content owners, TV Everywhere providers, and content aggregators to meet their needs for today and tomorrow. Its software-defined networking technology offers a unique combination of assets with a focus on long-form premium video.
