Level 3 Announces Deployment of Adobe Flash Media Server 3


Global Streaming Platform Upgrade, One of the First Major Content Delivery Platforms Fully Enabled with Adobe Flash Media Server 3

Level 3 Communications’ Content Markets Group today announced it has expanded its strategic collaboration with Adobe, and is deploying Adobe® Flash® Media Server 3 across Level 3’s content delivery infrastructure. With this upgrade, Level 3, an Adobe Premier Authorized Flash Video Streaming Service Partner, will further expand the options available for delivering video in the Adobe Flash format for content publishers. The integration of Adobe Flash Media Server 3 technology into Level 3’s CDN services will make it possible for customers to deliver true HD streams, leveraging Level 3’s large IP network to effectively deliver video in the Flash format, around the world.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Level 3, which includes the integration of Adobe Flash Media Server 3 into their infrastructure,” said Bill Rusitzky, director of global strategic alliances for Dynamic Media at Adobe. “With this announcement, Level 3 is proving its commitment to upgrade its infrastructure with the latest technological developments. We believe customers will benefit from the combination of Level 3’s global CDN platform and Adobe Flash Media Server 3.”

With this deployment, Level 3’s CDN service offering will mark one of the first major content delivery platforms to be fully enabled with Flash Media Server 3, and will help customers deliver an improved online experience with HD streaming capabilities and improved functionality for encoding, protecting and monetizing their content. Additionally Flash Media Server 3 enables more concurrent streams to be delivered by the same server, offering improved efficiencies and economics for the customer.

“Level 3 continues to invest in core features and functionality demanded by today’s streaming customers,” said Grant van Rooyen, president of Level 3’s Content Markets Group. “This rollout is the latest step in building a world-class streaming platform. Level 3 is committed to pushing technology platforms such as Adobe Flash Media Server 3 to market to help drive adoption of rich media content.”

Level 3 continues to offer customers diverse options for distributing content with the combination of both its CDN and Streaming services, and its Vyvx services portfolio; the company offers all aspects of the content delivery value chain for traditional and non-traditional distribution. Level 3 will begin offering its HD streaming service integrated with Adobe’s Flash Media Server 3 at the end of April.
