Verizon Digital Media Services has announced that its content delivery network is now utilised by the main digital media properties for Grupo Clarín, Argentina’s largest media conglomerate. For the first time ever, Verizon Digital Media Services will provide technology support to manage video on-demand traffic for main websites, including Radio Mitre, CIMECO, Artear and Clarín.
“Grupo Clarín has been a media leader for decades, providing its audiences with unparalleled access to the latest news, sports and entertainment,” said Chris Carey, Chief Strategy Officer, Verizon Digital Media Services. “As Grupo Clarín continues to evolve and expand its footprint across web and video, it’s an honor to have our network selected to ensure the high quality, reliable delivery of its content to audiences.”
Grupo Clarín’s digital media properties include television channels, radio stations, newspaper portals and sports, available via the web, iOS, Android and Smart TV systems that will be distributed through the Verizon Digital Media Services content delivery network.
“Verizon Digital Media Services’ content delivery network performance, rich feature set, flexibility and quality have exceeded our goals,” said Damián Molinari, responsible for the implementation of the new video on-demand platform from Artear, Grupo Clarín’s audiovisual division. “With consistent traffic growth, we now have the ability to scale with ease, which has never been more critical for the recent FIFA World Cup stream — one of the most watched sporting events in the world.”
