Lumen adds video encoding to fibre and Edge networks

According to the company, its new end-to-end solution provides advanced capabilities to prepare and enrich content for delivery to users over the internet

Lumen Technologies, previously known as CenturyLink, is combining advanced video encoding technologies with its global fibre and Edge networks.

Lumen Media Transformation utilises the company’s secure Vyvx signal acquisition which has been interconnected with MediaKind’s Aquila Streaming solution for encoding, packaging and enrichment of content.

The video is then served directly to the consumer over the Lumen CDN.

According to the company, the new service “enhances the Lumen platform and broadens the media and content delivery capabilities available to customers to deliver amazing digital experiences”.

“This fully-managed advanced media transformation and content delivery service will help accelerate time-to-market for global broadcasters and pay-TV operators who are competing to transform their services in rapidly growing over-the-top (OTT) markets,” said Pierre-Louis Theron, vice president of content delivery services, Lumen Technologies.
