Lonely Planet selects Limelight Networks for lonelyplanet.tv
"Choosing Limelight's content delivery network has proven to be a smart business decision for our roll-out of lonelyplanet.tv," said Sohail Dahdal, digital manager at lonelyplanet.tv. "We looked at all the different streaming services and found that Limelight was best-equipped to accommodate our future growth. Limelight's infrastructure allows sites such as ours to rapidly grow and develop as user needs evolve."
The lonelyplanet.tv Web site went live in April with six channels and more than 75 videos. The site has since grown exponentially to encompass more than 1,600 videos, and it has become a popular destination for world travelers who view it as a resource for both information and entertainment.
The new online video network, which showcases user-created videos as well as original documentaries produced by Lonely Planet Television, has quickly become an engaging online hub where viewers can share their travel adventures by uploading 3- to 5-minute videos from a computer, cell phone or Web cam.
Limelight enables lonelyplanet.tv to provide a compelling high-quality video experience to the more than 160,000 and growing globetrotters that visit lonelyplanet.tv each month by maintaining performance levels as traffic, file size and content collections increase.
