Leading Content Delivery Network (CDN) selected to help fuel business growth for global media asset management provider

TEMPE, Ariz.--()--Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:LLNW) (“Limelight”), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that Opsomai has deployed the Limelight OrchestrateTM (“Orchestrate”) Delivery platform to support global distribution of media assets to their clients around the world. Opsomai replaced their incumbent provider due to growing demand for content, cost containment, and integration flexibility.

Opsomai, headquartered in Paris, France, is a leading provider of Media Asset Management platforms. With over 15 years of expertise supporting archiving and audiovisual production, its Web 2.0 software, Opsis Media, helps video archive holders, production companies and large corporations leverage the value of their audio, image and video assets. Opsomai offers an integrated suite of software and cloud services to support all video, image and sound formats that interface with video sharing websites, social networks, mobile applications and web TV.

The growth in the adoption of their 400TB media management platforms by large global corporations led Opsomai to recognize the need for expanded scale. “We are seeing significant growth in the use of video by our corporate clients for both internal communication, on their Intranet, and external communication through corporate and event websites. With this type of traffic doubling each year, Limelight makes it easy for us to expand our delivery around the globe,” said David Clemenceau, Opsomai founder and CEO. “Limelight’s expertise in streaming media, coupled with their global delivery capabilities, is helping us grow our business.”

The Orchestrate Content Delivery platform, offered the flexible, seamless integration they were looking for, along with the tools necessary to securely stream video with multi-protocol support including HLS and DASH for mobile devices. Limelight’s global private CDN proved to be a cost effective complement to Opsomai’s already existing service offerings.

“Limelight Orchestrate Delivery services offload the complexity of delivering content to global clients, allowing companies like Opsomai to concentrate on their core business. Incorporating Limelight services into Opsomai’s existing infrastructure, including its vast media libraries, was simple and non-disruptive,” said Jonathan Smith, Limelight group vice president for EMEA. “Our team has a deep understanding of the video streaming market and is looking forward to collaborating and supporting Opsomai as they grow their client base.”
