Media & Entertainment

The applications for high-quality video continue to expand, and the growing, global audience demands instant access to premium content and flawless viewing experiences on any device, in any location.

To increase engagement, monetize audiences and capture this unparalleled opportunity, providers must deliver content securely and without interruption.

Deliver fast, secure, cloud-based viewing experiences to any device

Poor viewing experiences can negatively impact your brand and lead to a potential loss in ad and subscription revenues. In fact, videos with a start-up time exceeding even two seconds have significantly higher abandonment rates, with each incremental second propelling another 6% of viewers to jump ship.
