Boston Bureau Productions Moves to LTN Managed Network Solutions
LTN Global, a provider of broadcast-quality IP video transport solutions, has become the exclusive IP transmission provider for Boston Bureau Productions (BBP), which operates more than 40 studios across the United States. BBP relies on LTN Managed Network Solutions for transport of video content to broadcast networks worldwide.
“We moved away from our existing open internet hardware solutions to LTN Managed Network Solutions because LTN provides us with the monitoring, support, and quality that our customers demand,” said Sean Gately, CEO of Boston Bureau Productions.
Founded in 1998, BBP has a history in live news and sports production. In addition to producing telecasts for the NFL’s New England Patriots and the New England Revolution of the MLS, BBP contributes live remotes to networks and other newsgathering organizations around the world. These events are among the more than 200 live events managed by LTN every day.
LTN’s 24/7 Network Operations Center provides support for more than 2,000 global locations across a multicast IP network. The company’s monitored and managed network routes video traffic around congestion and corrects for jitter and packet-loss issues. With a latency of less than 300 milliseconds, LTN’s network is ideal for live interviews.
“The mission-critical nature of live TV demands a reliable, fully managed, fixed low-latency network,” said Chris Myers, executive vice president of business development for LTN Global. “Through our managed network solutions, we provide Boston Bureau Productions with the monitoring and support necessary to make every live project a success.”
