When the Boston Red Sox and the Oakland A's kicked off the 2008 MLB season in the Tokyo Dome, fans in the New England area watched the action in HD via fiber-optic infrastructure provided by Genesis Networks.
The same fiber network delivered the games online to viewers worldwide via MLB.com, the official Web site of the MLB.
Genesis Networks provided more than 32 hours of networking services to MLB Advanced Media for delivery of news feeds as well as complete live coverage of the season openers and exhibition games to MLB.com. Genesis delivered the video signal to MLB Advanced Media headquarters in New York City, where it was streamed directly onto the MLB.com site.
