Digital delivery specialist Limelight has announced the availability of its Limelight Orchestrate solution for Media and Broadcasters. Limelight’s new integrated workflow solution empowers broadcasters and media content owners to deliver broadcast-quality video to online audiences faster and easier. The Orchestrate solution for Media and Broadcasters offers a powerful cloud-based solution that reduces content publishing complexity and speeds time-to-market, while also improving the availability, performance, scalability, and protection broadcasters need to efficiently deliver today’s burgeoning digital video content.
While more people still watch video on their TV’s than online and on mobile devices, the gap between the two is rapidly shrinking, and the increase in consumer video consumption via mobile/digital devices is exploding. According to Nielsen, the main driver of this shift from traditional viewing methods to the digital world is the proliferation of digital devices. Americans now own four digital devices on average, and the average U.S. consumer spends 60 hours a week consuming content across devices.
Stefano Flamia, CTO of Italian video service CHILI comments, “At CHILI, we need to be able to efficiently deliver content to our customers around Europe, to any device, while managing the rapid growth of our content. That’s why we chose Limelight. Our use of the Limelight Orchestrate solution enables us to manage large amounts of objects and to offer fast content availability, while managing spikes in demand and controlling our delivery costs.”
