All content cannot be treated the same way. Live content, for example, requires specific treatment when delivering it in a multiscreen environment. It puts your CDN to the ultimate test. Live content is often associated with big events, and big events are often associated with a huge number of viewers, all wanting the same content at the same time. Typically 50-60% of the client requests come within the first 2 minutes from the start of the event. And finally, big events usually go hand-in-hand with expensive rights, so viewer experience is extremely important to fully maximize your ROI.
Luckily, we have a developed our TV CDN solutions to address these specific challenges. Smooth onboarding of viewers and a “better than broadcast” viewing experience are key characteristics of our system. We call it our Big Event solution.
