The industries Limelight serves

Media and Broadcasters:The Media and Broadcasting industry is undergoing dramatic changes in technology and business models. To stay competitive, you need flexibility in your video delivery infrastructure so you can go in whatever direction is required to satisfy and hold onto an audience. The Limelight Solution for Media and Broadcasters provides the tools you’ll need to manage and deliver live and on-demand video with the best possible user experience to a global audience.

Limelight’s solution for Media and Broadcasters utilizes a variety of video workflow capabilities to help you:

  • Reduce your internal workload
  • Simplify video publishing
  • Reduce your capex investment
  • Secure content

Software and device manufacturers:To keep your customers happy—and stay ahead of the competition and the hackers—you’ve got to get your software and device updates out in the field. It’s useless to develop cool new products, features, security updates, enhancements and bug fixes if they don’t reach your customers. Today’s digital distribution infrastructure has to work fast and reliably. And it has to deliver thousands, if not millions, of updates on a schedule that meets your business needs.

Limelight's solution for Software and Device Manufacturers meets these challenges and offers:

  • Fast, reliable operations 24/7/365
  • Reduced complexity
  • Shift from capex to opex
  • Secure delivery

Retail and e-commerce:While e-commerce was once just about duplicating the in-store experience, it now requires so much more. Online retailers are expected to deliver personalized shopping experiences featuring rich media and video on any device, wherever and whenever the customer chooses. And with consumers becoming increasingly impatient with slow websites, performance issues and downtime have a major impact on brand perception and customer loyalty. To maximize customer conversion and revenue, retailers need to deliver the best possible online experiences.

Leveraging the power of the Limelight edge cloud platform, the Limelight Solution for Retail and E-commerce provides the scalability, performance, reliability, and security you need to deliver the best online experiences to your customers, wherever and whenever, on whatever device they choose.

Gaming:When your game is released, you need a solution that’s ready to deliver millions of copies—fast. It not only needs to scale at launch, but it also needs to flex for those unexpected spikes in demand. Equally important, your gaming infrastructure should support your video and content-sharing strategy. If it can help protect you from malicious website attacks, especially during critical launch periods, all the better.

Limelight's solution for Gaming meets all these challenges and provides the following benefits:

  • Fast downloads
  • Simplified video sharing and streaming video delivery
  • Cloud leverage
  • Enhanced monetization
  • Secure delivery
