An Enhanced Content Delivery Network for High-Quality Video Streaming

Quality video delivery is no longer about producing an Internet-ready video file and serving it up on a CDN “as-is.” It goes beyond latency, packet loss and the bare-bones delivery of bits.

For the content producer, it is about taking the complexity out of the workflow and thus allowing them to focus solely on creating truly valued content. For the end-user, it’s all about ensuring the highest quality viewing experience of that content, no matter what the device or network conditions.
