Limelight Orchestrate Video Platform to Support Global Growth Strategy and Provide Customers’ Content on Any Device Anywhere

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, Inc. (“Limelight”) (Nasdaq:LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that OWNZONES is leveraging Limelight as its content delivery network (CDN) for its rapidly growing OTT digital subscription service. OWNZONES currently serves more than 1 million pieces of content daily to internet-enabled devices around the globe through the Limelight OrchestrateTM (“Orchestrate”) Video service.

“Appointment TV is dead. Today, content needs to be accessible everywhere, any time, and however the consumer wants to consume it,” said Dan Goman, CEO and co-founder of OWNZONES. “By working with Limelight, all the work of figuring out the streaming optimization and transcoding for multiple formats was taken off our plates.”

OWNZONES selected the Orchestrate Video service as its streaming solution in order to rapidly scale and meet global growth. It also needed a way to transcode content for any video-capable device while optimizing user experience. In addition, OWNZONES employed the Orchestrate Video service as a Digital Rights Management (DRM) resource, enabling video distribution on the platform without concern regarding protection.

“OWNZONES is a great example of the rapid adoption of OTT services. They need to be able to scale to meet demand while providing a broadcast-quality customer experience,” said Kevin Odden, group vice president at Limelight. “It’s exciting to watch their growth and provide the video delivery solution that allows them to focus on their business rather than technology needs.”

For more details on how OWNZONES is using the Limelight solution, please read the case study here.
