VMIX Adopts Akamai HD Network to Deliver Broadcast Quality Video and Best-in-Class Video Analytics

Previews New VMIX Reporting Suite at NAB Show, April 12- 15, Las Vegas (April 12, 2010)
DMN Newswire--2010-4-12-- VMIX (www.vmix.com), a leading online video platform provider, today announced they will broaden their relationship with Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the leader in powering video, dynamic transactions and enterprise applications online, by standardizing on the Akamai HD Network, a unified platform for delivering high-definition, user-optimized online video. 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." 

As the first phase of its integration, VMIX will demonstrate HTML5 video support for non-flash devices like the iPad, iPhone and other devices, as well as preview its soon-to-be released suite of video analytics at the NAB Show, April 12 through 15, in Las Vegas. Contact sales@vmix.com to schedule a demonstration.


 


"We're looking forward to showing off our integration with the Akamai HD Network. Akamai provides a foundation for us to deliver the highest quality in both live and on-demand video across a broad range of devices. They also allow us to now offer the very best video analytics to the industry," said Glickenhaus. "Allowing our clients to see exactly which videos are being viewed, when and how often-which in turn lets them monetize more effectively and refine the use of video across their websites."
