Delve Networks and Akamai to Enable Cloud-Based Video

Delve's video platform is the first video solution that leverages cloud computing

Delve Networks announces a strategic relationship with Akamai Technologies that will enable Delve to offer customers a comprehensive and innovative video publishing solution that includes video management and delivery including support of next generation variable bit rate streaming technologies.

Easy to Use Turnkey Solution
Customers will have everything they need to publish video online, including video content ingestion, encoding, content management, syndication, analytics, monetization, content delivery, easy to customize video players, APIs, multiple device support, and search. The Delve platform is as simple to use as it is powerful, providing a simple point-and-click user interface that makes publishing video online accessible to anyone and any organization. In fewer than 5 minutes, a customer can go from having no video on their website to delivering high quality video with a player customized to match the website's branding.

"Delve is excited to team with Akamai to offer customers a complete video management solution utilizing Akamai's global network. Our joint effort will help us reach many more customers than we could reach alone," said Alexander Castro, CEO of Delve Networks. "Increasingly we are looking for leading partners who can help us provide the best in video management and solutions for our customers. We can think of no one better than Akamai to work with."

"A fast, efficient media distribution workflow based on industry standards is critical to any successful online business," said Tim Napoleon, Chief Strategist for Digital Media at Akamai. "Akamai's mission is to support innovation and leadership in this space and Delve clearly offers an impactful solution. Providing unique and innovative capabilities, such as a cloud-based architecture and search inside, Delve's video platform is not only technologically advanced, but also easy to use."

Utilizing the Cloud for Video Publishing
Delve's video platform is the first video solution that leverages cloud computing to provide publishers with the ability to elastically handle high quality video delivery and pay only for what they actually use. This not only frees publishers from having to worry about managing spikes in demand, but also completely removes the need to purchase, deploy, and maintain hardware and software. 

Customers can also leverage the rich set of APIs exposed by the Delve cloud platform to build their own custom online video applications.

Says Doug Donaldson, President of PlaysportsTV, an award winning site for youth sports coaching and instructional videos, "Delve's rich set of API's allowed PlaysportsTV to build an engaging site for our customers without requiring a large in-house staff. Delve's video platform makes it possible for us to invest our money in areas that help us grow our business."

Semantic Video Technology
By the year 2013, Internet Video will account for 91% of all consumer traffic. The equivalent of 10 billion DVDs will be transferred every month on the Internet. With that many videos online, it becomes increasingly important to provide more powerful tools for managing and viewing video. Delve's video platform includes patented semantic video technology which extracts information from within the video to provide enhanced search, meta-data tagging, and indexing capabilities.

Delve allows consumers to search inside the video itself and jump directly to the point in the video in which they are most interested. Doing so increases engagement and reduces abandonment.

Delivering the Highest Quality Video
With Akamai's Media Delivery Services, Delve is able to deliver an amazing viewing experience, including HD-quality video, anywhere in the world. Akamai supports both Adobe's dynamic streaming and Microsoft's Silverlight Smooth Streaming technologies providing flexibility and choice for customers looking to deliver HD-quality video online.

Akamai's global delivery network includes more than 48,000 servers across 70 different countries and provides services to many leading broadcast companies around the world. With more capacity and server locations closer to the consumer, no other media delivery network can offer the same level of scalability and performance that is critical for successful delivery of high quality video.

Since launching 10 months ago, Delve Networks has signed up over 70 customers including Standard & Poor's, 1800Flowers, the Kansas City Chiefs, and many others.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
