This summer your video uploads and video games will feel HD all the time! This is because the global leader of content delivery network services, Akamai Technologies Inc., implements their Media Acceleration for over-the-top or #OTT netizens who love videos, be it posting, watching or playing games as well as other software downloads—basically everyone.
With this Media Acceleration, communication between OTT consumers and operators will be more effective, resulting for Akamai to deliver video suited for network type, device capabilities, and other conditions of specific end users. The result? A consistently high and predictable quality of video experience.
“Shortly after shifting traffic to Media Acceleration, Vimeo observed higher quality video experiences for our viewers; most notably a marked increase in playbacks at HD quality,” explained Naren Venkataraman, Vice President, Engineering, Vimeo.
A great start for this evolutionary milestone. Gamers and video lovers watch out! Akamai’s Media Accelaration is available to their customers as a feature of their Adaptive Media Delivery and Download Delivery Products.
