They're available virtually anywhere in the world for single use or on-going broadcasting needs.

Broadcast Video: Leading Technology Change

AT&T Broadcast Video solutions use our end-to-end fiber optic network to help deliver consistent high quality user experiences.

Increasing competition and demand for high quality multimedia is driving constant improvements in video technology. End-point devices are continuously evolving and new technology standards, regulatory requirements and protocols must be met and implemented. It can be quite costly for an enterprise to keep equipment and staff trained and up-to-date. AT&T has been a leader in video technology, including:

  • Director representation at Video Services Forum Inc, an international multimedia association comprised of manufacturers, service providers, and users dedicated to quality, equipment interoperability, the development of new technology and education for video networking
  • Active leadership positions within the industry, including helping to guide standards with the National Television Systems Committee (NTSC) and the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE)

AT&T Broadcast Video solutions have you covered. Our automated, managed solutions help provide low-latency, format-optimized content delivery to a vast range of devices and across virtually any customer network type.

Effectively Managing Video Capacity

Each video broadcast demands different requirements. A multi-cast transmission of a sports event could require up to 1,000 access points and 1,000 local loops, which is not financially feasible for enterprises making periodic broadcasts that move locations. Capacity requirements may also be different for each transmission, demanding variable bandwidth and compression needs. AT&T provides a cost-effective video broadcast solution, using the performance and scale of our fiber optic network and a best practice approach to managing your capacity.

Broadcast video use cases include:

  • Sports, music and theatrical events
  • On-demand learning
  • Digital workflow, including file sharing and data transfer
  • Internal communications and training
  • Special event coverage
  • Advertising

Global reach from a single provider

Whether it's a concert held in Seoul, a Brazilian soccer match, or a health services conference keynote from New York, your users want rich, engaging video experiences that bring their unique interests to them wherever they are.
