  • (NYSE: LVLT) today announced that it will provide television broadcast video services to the NFL and NBC Sports for the presentation of Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, as well as additional Super Bowl-related programming, using Level3's Vyvx VenueNet+ technology. This is the 26th consecutive year that Level 3 Communications has provided such services for the Super Bowl.

    The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched television events in the U.S. each year last year, it drew in 111.5 million viewers, which is the largest audience in television history. This year, the Super Bowl will be hosted at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., which is connected directly to Level 3's advanced fiber-optic network, enabling the TV broadcast of the event. Level 3 will also support NBC broadcasts from downtown Phoenix, which will occur in the days leading up to, and the day of, the event. In total, more than 3,000 hours of video content will be acquired, encoded and transported across Level3's Vyvx VenueNet+ platform as part of the Super Bowl coverage.

  • It remains to be seen whether opposing quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady will light up the scoreboard at Super Bowl XLIX, but it’s a sure bet that Durham-based Cree will light up the stadium.

    Cree reports that the 312 LED lighting fixtures at the University of Phoenix Stadium, where Sunday’s contest is being played, feature no less than 44,928 Cree brand LEDs.

    The fixtures from Ephesus Lighting replaced traditional metal halide fixtures and are 75 percent more energy-efficient – requiring 310,000 watts of energy rather than the 1.24 million watts consumed by the prior system, according to Cree.

    Cree also notes that the LED fixtures provide nearly double the illumination of the traditional fixtures. That enabled the stadium to reduce the number of fixtures by more than half; it previously boasted 780 fixtures.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • "Moissanite gemstone maker Charles & Colvard announced that it has a new agreement to purchase silicon carbide crystals from Durham-based Cree that runs through mid-2018.

    The new agreement for silicon carbide, which is used to make moissanite gemstones, went into effect last week and replaces a deal that was set to expire in 2015. Morrisville-based Charles & Colvard’s new agreement with Cree also includes a two-year renewal option, subject to meeting certain conditions.

    Cree, best-known for its LED lights, primarily produces silicon carbide for its LEDs."

    "Jefferies weighed in on LVLT following Wednesday's quarterly earnings announcement -- and the stock's first day as a member of the S&P 500 Index (SPX) -- boosting its price target to $56 from $55, and underscoring its "buy" rating. The equity is failing to capitalize on this upbeat outlook, though, and was last seen 1.4% lower at $46.18. Longer term, Level 3 Communications, Inc. has been a standout on the charts, and has tacked on 39% year-to-date. Should LVLT resume its uptrend, an unwinding of skepticism could help propel the shares higher. At the ISE, CBOE, and PHLX, for instance, LVLT's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 1.46 ranks higher than 81% of similar readings taken in the past year. Outside of the options pits, short interest accounts for 10.6% of the security's available float, representing nearly seven sessions' worth of pent-up buying demand, at average daily trading levels."
