Today’s online video audiences demand one thing—a quality viewing experience. They want their streaming video experience to be as good as the one they get from their television sets. That’s why you can’t compromise on the service. You need a way to deliver your video to any device, fast, and everywhere that your users are. Doing this, though, involves complex workflows that can include the transcoding and transmuxing of video into the multiple formats required for all those devices. And, accommodating growing video-on- demand libraries takes planning and capital to scale storage. Finally, delivering that video to a global audience requires you to buy and install the right infrastructure in the right places.
But you don’t have to do all of this by yourself. With Limelight’s powerful cloud-based services at your fingertips, you can offload much of this complexity and expense so that you can focus on what’s important—providing your audience with great content.
