Frost & Sullivan Lauds Limelight For Its Expansive Product Innovation And Capability, Beyond The Scope Of A Traditional Online Video Platform

Stocks in this article: LLNW

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the online video platforms (OVP) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Limelight Networks, Inc. with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy. Limelight Networks is the only OVP vendor with its own native content delivery network (CDN), which enables it to create single-source online video management package solutions that no other vendor can similarly offer. Limelight provides multi-platform, cross-functional management tools such as pervasive workflow, content policies and reporting solutions that are fully native and consistent.

Limelight also owns a Web content management (WCM) solution and has the ability to package and deliver multiple forms for rich media content on a global scale. Its freedom to create flexible, scalable, and capable digital media management solutions around its core products (WCM, OVP, CDN) has widened its reach across the ever-expanding digital video management value chain.

"Limelight's semantic online video analytics program is designed to capture unstructured data from within a video stream, create a map of that video, and identify the concepts and objects within the video, independent of angle, movement, and size, which allows for unique identification and contextual search," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst, Loren Johnson. "This type of solution is game-changing for the online video market, as it can both protect content rights and build effective data capabilities that power advanced search and recommendation engines. Such online video analytics engines have become an indispensable part of the online video management value chain."

Premium, fee-based access and advertising-supported content is powering the monetization of online video, while commercial publishers are simultaneously driving market improvements in quality and ensured delivery. Long-form content—movies and television shows, education and corporate messaging—is also becoming increasingly common and popular. In this environment, Limelight stands to gain considerable market share because the company has the reach and depth of video management solution offerings to make the most of these global trends.
