  Limelight Networks Delivers for StreamOn’s Radio Broadcasting Customers

Limelight Networks, Inc., (“Limelight”) (Nasdaq:LLNW) a global leader in digital content delivery, announced today that StreamOn has deployed the Limelight OrchestrateTM (“Orchestrate”) Content Delivery and Cloud Storage platform.

StreamOn, an Edmonton, Canada based company, provides radio broadcasters with the tools and technology to grow their online audiences through social media. The audio live streaming company will use the Orchestrate platform to enable their customers to reliably stream audio broadcasts with low latency on StreamOn’s servers.

“StreamOn serves a demanding set of radio broadcasters around the world. Even the slightest decrease in performance or availability might affect its reputation and brand,” said Kirby Wadsworth, chief marketing officer at Limelight.

The StreamOn appliance requires dependable connectivity to 300+ customer radio stations throughout Canada, the United States, and other parts of the world. StreamOn’s Listen Later service allows radio stations to serve both live and on-demand audiences, resulting in potential additional revenue, and new requirements for flawless content delivery.

“Our online streaming must be ‘FM-quality’ – anything less is unacceptable. It is also not acceptable for our radio broadcast customers to go offline, so we needed to be assured that the solution we chose was highly reliable,” said Andrew Snook, chief technology officer at StreamOn.

StreamOn selected the Limelight Orchestrate platform to ensure reduced downtime, significantly lower latency, and the highest quality delivery, through the world’s fastest and most reliable content delivery platform. With Limelight, StreamOn can now deliver broadcast quality audio content to any device, anywhere on the planet. StreamOn joins a growing list of audio streaming and broadcast industry leaders across the globe that have each chosen the Orchestrate platform to ensure reliability, consistency, and the highest quality content delivery.

“Limelight exceeded all of our criteria and we are very pleased with the result,” continued Snook. “We’ve substantially increased our uptime by using Limelight, and by using their Cloud Storage service we are seeing our content available 30 seconds quicker than with our previous vendor. In the radio business, this is significant.”

“We are excited to be working with StreamOn, one of Canada’s leading streaming companies, to help them better engage their global online audiences. Reliability and performance are hallmarks of Limelight’s broadcast-quality platform and services, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship,” continued Wadsworth.

Earlier this month, Limelight announced that it will showcase its solutions portfolio for broadcast and video companies at the International Broadcasting Convention, IBC 2014 in Amsterdam next month. The Limelight OrchestrateTM platform helps ensure the global delivery of broadcast quality digital content to online audience on any device. Visitors to the show can discuss their challenges and explore with Limelight experts, while viewing demonstrations of broadcast workflows at stand 3.B15 in Hall 3.
