Video audiences expect broadcast quality on any device, anywhere they are viewing. But delivering live and on-demand video to the diversity of devices used, and supporting all required formats is complex. What’s more, scaling storage to accommodate a growing library of large VOD files is expensive and takes planning. As if these challenges weren’t enough to deal with, there are board-level concerns about the increase in network attacks and about theft of data. Addressing all these issues, while delivering the user experience demanded by your audience, is a serious challenge.
Limelight Video Services tackle the challenges using connected-device detection with automatic conversion, which offloads complex transcoding and transmuxing functionality to the cloud. Our densely architected global network with dozens of global POPs and direct connections to hundreds of access networks at the edge, provides local caching of content for optimum delivery. Integrated security services, like DDoS Attack Interceptor and Web Application Firewall, keep your video website protected and available, while SSL and URL tokenization secures content and prohibits unauthorized access.
Limelight Video Delivery Services include powerful business benefits:
By reducing the time it takes to load content into the CDN, the audience has faster access to it and can interact with it sooner.
Combined infrastructure for delivery and storage significantly reduces CapEx requirements.
Leveraging cloud-based transcoding and transmuxing offloads computationally complex tasks and assures delivery of the correct video format to every user device.
Defending against attacks with website protection maintains availability of content, and access authentication limits viewership to authorized users.
