The popularity of college sports has exploded, and with that comes a proliferation of games on both television and online. Despite games being broadcast from all corners of college campuses, quality can’t be sacrificed for the die-hard fans watching on the other side of the country. As fiber transmission costs decline and demand for HD quality increases, sports broadcasting is moving to fiber to take advantage of greater workflow efficiency and stability of service.
Level 3® Vyvx® Solutions provide direct fiber connections to our network at nearly every major league stadium in the United States, and a growing number of college and international sports venues are taking advantage of these improved broadcast capabilities. With the Level 3 Vyvx VenueNet LiteSM service, the latest addition to the Emmy® Award-winning Level 3 Vyvx VenueNet® family of services, broadcasters and universities now have a simple, reliable alternative to satellite broadcasting. The VenueNet Lite offering features our high-definition fiber network and central, dedicated locations for easy equipment connectivity, with no need for costly satellite trucks or extra personnel.
