A recent article out of Frost & Sullivan reports, "Based on its recent analysis of the online video platforms (OVP) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Limelight Networks, Inc. with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy. Limelight Networks is the only OVP vendor with its own native content delivery network (CDN), which enables it to create single-source online video management package solutions that no other vendor can similarly offer. Limelight provides multi-platform, cross-functional management tools such as pervasive workflow, content policies and reporting solutions that are fully native and consistent."
Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst, Loren Johnson commented, "Limelight's semantic online video analytics program is designed to capture unstructured data from within a video stream, create a map of that video, and identify the concepts and objects within the video, independent of angle, movement, and size, which allows for unique identification and contextual search… This type of solution is game-changing for the online video market, as it can both protect content rights and build effective data capabilities that power advanced search and recommendation engines. Such online video analytics engines have become an indispensable part of the online video management value chain."
