Broadpeak unveils umbrellaCDN

March 6, 2013

Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and VoD servers, has launched umbrellaCDN, an innovative solution that offers content providers and pay-TV operators complete control over the allocation of video content to multiple CDNs. Utilising umbrellaCDN, users can select the best CDN for live or VoD content at all times — according to various criteria — enabling them to provide the best possible quality of experience for end-users at the best possible cost.

“Content providers and operators are constantly looking for new ways to improve the video delivery process,” said Jacques Le Mancq, president and CEO of Broadpeak. “umbrellaCDN perfectly complements our existing CDN solutions by enabling content operators and providers to balance traffic between multiple CDNs, with the end result being a superior quality of experience for high-value content and the best cost and quality trade-off for standard content.”
