Eyespot Expands Online Video Network; Selects Limelight Networks to Serve Middle Market

Limelight Networks’ Content Delivery Service Makes Eyespot’s Video Publishing Offerings Available to Millions of Web Publishers

Eyespot (www.eyespotnetwork.com) is adding to its turnkey video publishing offering, giving its customers instant access to a dedicated global optical network from Limelight Networks, Inc. Members of the Eyespot Video Network can avoid the complexities of content delivery service integration and use Eyespot’s fully hosted video publishing platform to boost impressions, ad revenues, and viral sharing. Noted for its work with national brands such as Lucasfilm, Ltd., SonyBMG Entertainment and the NBA, Eyespot has recently opened its offerings to Web publishers and marketers of all sizes — expanding its hosted services to serve mid-market sites including ExpertVillage.com, eHow.com and Sisterwoman.com.

Eyespot brings together rights-cleared content, content production and personalization tools, and integrated video content delivery services including Limelight Networks’ CDN to give publishers a one-stop solution for online video. Web publishers of all sizes can publish video to their sites, create galleries and build video production contests, for a global audience, in a matter of minutes.

“The economies of our model put broadband video in reach of any Website,” said Jim Kaskade, president and CEO of Eyespot. “To date, most online video content resides on several relatively large properties. There is incredible potential for small and mid-size Websites to immediately begin using video, and to leverage the social aspects of it to differentiate in a growing and competitive online marketplace.”

Limelight Networks’ CDN architecture was designed to maximize the user experience through high performance and reliable delivery of every object, every time. Music, videos and other content reaches users at incredibly high speeds regardless of object size, library size, audience size and object popularity. It meets Eyespot’s commitment to offering its customers seamless, turnkey video delivery with immense scalability.

“Small and mid-size Websites want to use video to help grow their communities, and we’re equipped to serve them at the early stage and to grow with them,” said Kaskade.
