LTN hits 1 million network live feed milestone to lead IP-first media future
LTN has delivered 1 million live video feeds via the LTN Network, the company’s proprietary multicast-enabled global IP network that delivers <200ms latency and 99.999% reliability.
On 8 May 2023, LTN managed its 1 millionth live feed for a live football game between Arsenal de Sarandí and Gimnasia La Plata in Argentina’s Liga Profesional de Fútbol. Since its inception in 2007, the company has delivered live feeds via the LTN Network for primary transmission, testing and monitoring for a diverse range of high-value programming including live news coverage, entertainment, political live events, esports and premium live sports events such as the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, NFL Draft 2020 and American Idol.
“Our 1 millionth booking on the LTN Network marks a cataclysmic shift in the status quo of live media delivery as world-leading organisations recognise the potential of IP-based distribution,” said Dr Yair Amir, chief science officer and co-founder at LTN. “In an increasingly complex and fragmented market with new business models emerging and new ways of working constantly evolving, multicast enabled, intelligent IP video transport provides the best foundation to underpin the future for any media business. We’re incredibly proud of this milestone and look forward to continuing to innovate with our Network to drive business results for our customers.”
Every live feed delivered via the LTN Network includes built-in insights, rich data and business intelligence to give customers greater visibility and control over their content compared with traditional satellite or fibre-based models. Via the LTN Network portal, customers can access data around viewing metrics, ISP connectivity, signal continuity, packet loss, latency and last-mile health.
Organisations such as MSG Networks, TelevisaUnivision, Deutsche Welle, Sinclair Broadcast Group and Fox Sports have harnessed the LTN Network to deliver high-value sports, news and other entertainment content to global viewers across traditional broadcast, over the top, free ad-supported streaming TV and other digital platforms.
