SAVAGE, Md.—Replacing its satellite transmission system, New Mexico State University has agreed on a three-year deal with LTN Global to serve as the school’s primary IP transmission provider. NMSU will now use LTN Managed Network Solutions.
The LTN service is mostly used by NMSU’s AggieVision and Special Productions Unit, which produces more than 40 athletic telecasts a year, including football, men’s and women’s basketball, softball and baseball. LTN’s managed network assists with the transport of video content to ESPN, Fox Sports Arizona, Altitude Sports, Comcast and KVIA.
LTN’s managed IP network uses the internet to transmit NMSU’s live signals to its broadcast partners with less than 200 milliseconds of latency, per LTN. The IP video transport provider also has backhaul services for NMSU to cover the athletic events that the university can transmit to multiple points.
Adrian Velarde, KRWG Public Media’s general manager at NMSU, said the transition process was smooth and that they have been “pleased with our move to LTN.”
