Limelight Networks, a global leader in digital content delivery, has announced that Dailymotion, one of the largest video platforms in the world, is using the Limelight Orchestrate (“Orchestrate”) Delivery service to deliver broadcast quality videos in Asia to all Internet connected devices.
“We believe video is the best way to capture and share life’s incredible variety. As our global business expands into more markets it’s important for us to offer the best video experience to our viewers around the globe,” said Guillaume Clement, vice president of engineering at Dailymotion. “When put to the test, Limelight was able to provide Dailymotion with the best streaming experience in Asia Pacific (APAC) to support our rapid expansion in the region.”
Today, people watch, share and upload their videos on Dailymotion across every continent. More than half of their video views come from mobile devices. With rapid global growth, Dailymotion needed an extra delivery boost, in addition to its regular bandwidth capacity, for the most popular videos in its growing APAC market. Before making a decision, Dailymotion conducted real-time user testing to evaluate several CDNs.
“As Dailymotion grows their business globally, they have one chance to make a first impression and they need confidence that their videos will be delivered flawlessly,” said Jon Smith, group vice president and managing director, EMEA at Limelight. “Even in the face of unexpected traffic spikes, Orchestrate delivers a broadcast quality experience to viewers around the globe, on the device of their choosing.”
