Optimum Lightpath launches managed video service

AUGUST 19, 2008 -- Optimum Lightpath (search for Optimum Lightpath) today announced the launch and availability of Lightpath Managed Video service, a complete video service that provides connectivity as well as encoding and decoding of digital video. Optimum Lightpath says it brings its mileage-neutral, flat-rate pricing and transport resiliency to the video market with the launch of this service.

Lightpath Managed Video service is purpose-built to directly address the needs of the media sector, including production facilities, broadcasters, television stations, and content distributors, as well as non-media organizations, such as healthcare facilities, municipalities, and enterprises with high-resolution "broadcast quality" video requirements, such as security surveillance and video conferencing. The new offering is ideally suited for file-based media and content transfers, utilizing the advantages of carrier-class Ethernet's resiliency to packet loss and jitter, say company representatives. Additionally, the service does not require any transport protocol conversions.

"With the launch of our Lightpath Managed Video service, Optimum Lightpath now offers a complete and unsurpassed suite of both managed and transport video services designed to meet the needs of the broadcast, entertainment, and enterprise markets who are embracing IP as an enabler of information and content distribution," reports Dave Pistacchio, general manager of Optimum Lightpath. "This service offers a true alternative to traditional video services and a more economical alternative to satellite. Additionally, we are able to leverage our state-of-the-art fiber-optic network to offer our customers greater flexibility, resiliency, and simplicity than any other provider in the market."

Lightpath Managed Video service is the newest addition to Optimum Lightpath's Video Services Portfolio, which also includes Lightpath Video Transport, a dedicated Layer 2 point-to-point service designed for broadcast-quality video transport. The new service electronically accepts, transports, and delivers native compressed and uncompressed digital video in common industry formats, including Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI), Standard Definition Serial Digital Interface (SD-SDI) and High Definition Serial Digital Interface (HD-SDI). It also includes a fully redundant protected connection.

Optional features for the service include Multiple ASI, which allows aggregation of up to four individual ASI feeds into a single IP-based Ethernet IP encoder and Linear Service, which provides a dedicated linear service for uncompressed SDI 270, uncompressed HD-SDI video, and ASI.
