NeuLion, Limelight integrate platforms for end-to-end TV everywhere delivery

NeuLion has integrated its TV everywhere platform with the Limelight Orchestrate content delivery service for end-to-end multiscreen delivery.
The NeuLion TV Everywhere Platform allows video publishers to ingest, monetise and securely manage their content across connected devices, including PCs, smartphones, tablets, game consoles and smart TVs. The NeuLion Platform also offers multiple monetisation options including advertising, pay-per-view, subscription, and TVE authentication models. The Orchestrate cloud-based delivery platform meanwhile offers bandwidth control, acceleration and monitoring for optimal performance to deliver that content anywhere, on any device.
"When launching a multi-screen video service, content owners need to meet, and exceed, consumer expectations of the viewing experience," said Chris Wagner, executive vice president and co-founder at NeuLion. "We're excited that by working with Limelight we can seamlessly provide an exceptional offering that meets this need."
The platform integration between NeuLion and Limelight reduces the complexities for rights holders as they no longer have to work with multiple vendors to deliver content. The new solution is aimed at studios, broadcasters, cable networks, sports leagues, content owners and distributors.
"The NeuLion TV Everywhere Platform is an incredible example of what can be done with the Orchestrate platform," said Kirby Wadsworth, Limelight's CMO. "OTT and TVE are multi-billion dollar markets, looking at a significant year over year growth, with new content sources arriving online every minute. Content owners need simple, easy to implement, solutions that allow them to tap into these new revenue streams quickly. We're very happy to work with NeuLion to bring world class solutions to this exploding market."
