VMIX Adopts Akamai HD Network to Deliver Broadcast Quality Video and Best-in-Class Video AnalyticsPreviews New VMIX Reporting Suite at NAB Show, April 12- 15, Las Vegas (April 12, 2010) VMIX President and CEO Mike Glickenhaus said the company is pleased to strengthen their already solid relationship with Akamai. "We have a shared vision with Akamai: To deliver the highest quality viewing experience possible to our clients and their audiences-and to extend our services on a network that offers unparalleled speed and flexibility for mobile, live and on-demand video publishing." Glickenhaus said that studies show that a superior quality experience drives audience engagement and the adoption of video on a wide range of devices. "Consumers want broadcast-quality video wherever they go-the kind of delivery that allows for instant start times, and the ability to control and interact with the content they are watching. The Akamai HD Network offers that quality and speed, as well as adaptive-bitrate streaming technology, a feature that automatically adjusts to a viewer's fluctuating Internet conditions to enable smooth playback and the best possible viewing experience."
