Limelight Multi-Device Media Delivery On-Demand Solution


The Limelight Orchestrate MMD On-Demand (OD) Solution is a powerful cloud-based set of video delivery services for automatically converting video content into different formats, which reduces workflow complexity and storage costs, while meeting the demands of device diversity. MMD OD is integrated with Limelight’s global Content Delivery Network (CDN), storage and security solutions, delivering broadcast quality video to all connected devices worldwide.


Transmux on the Fly

Multi-bitrate MP4 or ISMV (H.264 AAC-LC) transmuxed to HLS, DASH, MSS and HDS on demand.

Flexible Manifest Options

Provide an input manifest (ISM or SMIL), or use the Dynamic Manifest Generation for MP4 transmuxing.

Integrated Security

Apply MediaVault and SSL to the playback URLs.

Enhanced Delivery Options

Multiple language audio, single bitrate output, delivery from your origin and more.

“ We did think about and started working on our own streaming solution. We would have had to figure out all the transcoding in all the different formats, and streaming optimization, setting up our own CDN. All the work of figuring out the streaming optimization and transcoding for multiple formats was taken off our plates simply by working with Limelight. That’s pretty valuable.”

Challenges Delivering Video to a Diversity of Devices

Online video audiences today watch from a variety of devices—smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even smart TVs. But many devices have specific format requirements, which can mean pre-transcoding or transmuxing and storing dozens of extra copies of each video to ensure that the right format is delivered. On top of that, you need the in-house expertise to handle optimizing and fine-tuning the video conversion—all of which can add complexity and cost to your publishing workflow.

How Limelight MMD OD Solves the Challenges

MMD OD tackles the challenges of delivering on-demand video to audiences, with the broadcast-quality experience they demand. Automatic conversion offloads complex transmuxing functionality to the cloud. And because MMD OD is integrated directly with the Limelight Content Delivery Network (CDN) through our Orchestrate Platform, your videos are delivered via our densely architected global network that includes dozens of global POPs and direct connections to hundreds of access networks at the edge, providing local caching of content and optimum delivery.

Business Benefits

MMD OD includes powerful business benefits:

Reduce Internal Workloads

No transcoding required to service all device types.

Simplify Video Publishing

Transmxuing on the fly speeds time to market for your media, avoiding creating renditions in different formats prior to publication.

Reduce CapEx Infrastructure Costs

Transmux on the fly to HLS, HDS, MSS and DASH to save on resources needed for transcoding and storing multiple renditions of media.
