Today we announced a broad strategic partnership with Limelight Networks. For those deep in the business of multimedia content delivery on the Internet, you'll recognize Limelight as one of the fastest growing providers of extremely high-quality content delivery services for renowned brands such as NBC, ABC/Radio, and Fox's MySpace (who's "media delivery" encompasses the vast quantities of images, audio and video that are pasted throughout the 70+ million MySpace member pages).
The value of this partnership will be in what it enables for content owners and publishers. Until now, it has been cost-prohibitive for many publishers of broadband channels to build a business distributing high-quality video and rich media. The combination of Brightcove's Internet TV service and Limelight's media delivery platform will allow even individual producers to freely and easily create niche Internet TV properties and generate revenue from Brightcove's advertising services, by selling their content to consumers, and through syndication to other websites.
We're excited to work with this high-quality partner to move forward the Internet TV industry.
