Level 3 to support PBS coverage of Democratic, Republican National Conventions

Michelle Clancy | 31-07-2012

PBS will cover the Democratic and Republican National Conventions live and in HD using Level 3's Vyvx solutions. PBS' MacNeil/Lehrer will produce and deliver video coverage of each of the four-day events to PBS' large viewerbase.


"For more than 35 years, millions of viewers have turned to PBS NewsHour as a reliable and trustworthy source for news and information," said Annette Miller, vice president of MacNeil/Lehrer Productions.

"The Democratic and Republican National Conventions are two of the most important and most watched events in U.S. politics. Level 3's Vyvx Solutions will allow us to bring our signature brand of information and analysis to viewers as the news happens."

Award-winning political journalists Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill will co-anchor broadcast coverage of the conventions, while NewsHour Correspondent Hari Sreenivasan will extend the coverage online via the NewsHour's interactive digital map center and NewsHour All Hours, a 24-hour livestream on multiple channels that offers viewers an all-access pass to the conventions.

Under the terms of the agreement, Level 3 is providing MacNeil/Lehrer with broadcast services for each multi-day event, with digital connections in Washington, D.C. and to the respective convention venues. Each connection will offer Vyvx encoding, decoding, transmission and local access.

"Level 3's Vyvx Solutions offers a comprehensive suite of advanced broadcast capabilities that enable us to support some of the most prominent events around the world," said Mark Taylor, Level 3's vice president of Media and IP services, in a statement. "MacNeil/Lehrer and PBS have a distinguished history of enabling Americans all over the U.S. to actively engage in informative television broadcasts and online content, and we are delighted to work them to connect their broad audience base with the events of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions."

The Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa, Fla. from 27-30 August, and the Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C. from 3-6 September.
