Grand Prix Entertainment Chooses Limelight Networks To Implement Grand Prix Studios Network

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grand Prix Entertainment, a diversified multimedia production and distribution company that owns and manages sports, entertainment and gaming properties, announced today that Limelight Networks (Nasdaq:LLNW), a global leader in digital presence management will implement the Grand Prix Studios Network (GPSN), which will broadcast the Grand Prix Rugby Sevens Championship online and in real time.

Committed to world-class entertainment on and off the field, GPSN, in partnership with Olympic member USA Rugby, will present the 2013 Grand Prix Rugby Sevens Championship. The world's richest Sevens Championship in history will host 24 World Cup caliber international teams, including New Zealand, England, Australia, South Africa, China, India, Russia and the United States. The teams will play 60 games over three days for a world record purse of U.S. $1,000,000. The event is scheduled to take place on July 14-16, 2013, in Los Angeles at the AEG Home Depot Center, broadcast live on the NFL Network.

"This is a fabulous day for Grand Prix," said William Tatham, Chairman and CEO of Grand Prix Entertainment. "Working with Limelight Networks is the final piece in building a wholly-owned global digital network that provides world class sports and Hollywood entertainment to an existing worldwide audience. We're excited that the Grand Prix Studios Network will come to fruition with Limelight."

"Grand Prix Entertainment sought to be independent of existing sports leagues and broadcast networks, by acquiring rights to world class sport events. Working with Limelight, Grand Prix Entertainment can broadcast these events across an equally world class digital network, capable of delivering sports and entertainment products everywhere," said Tatham.

Leveraging the benefits of Limelight's world-class infrastructure, GPSN can scale as demand for content increases while continuing to deliver a high-quality experience for all viewers.

"Limelight is excited to power GPSN's online digital presence, including live video streaming, website design and web content management, for what will be the largest rugby event worldwide," said Jeff Freund, Vice President and General Manager, web content management, Limelight Networks. "With our Orchestrate Digital Presence Platform, we look forward to giving rugby fans all over the world immediate access to these games anytime, anywhere, and on any device."
