Limelight Provides Industry's First and Only Combined Web Content Management and Online Video Platform Service Powered by Its Own Worldwide Delivery Platform
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 22, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Limelight Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:LLNW, news, filings) today announced the release of several upgrades to the Limelight Video Platform (LVP) and Limelight Dynamic Site Platform (LDSP) integrated offering. These most recent enhancements include the ability to publish videos across multiple online and mobile sites and manage video channels from within the LDSP interface. By managing all web and video assets in a single workflow from one integrated dashboard, customers speed internal processes and increase publishing frequency, allowing them to more efficiently deliver optimal end-user experiences that drive engagement and revenue. Limelight will demonstrate these new capabilities at the SiriusDecisions Summit being held at The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona May 22-24.

Said e.Republic IT Director Trever Lee, "Before Limelight, we had various systems that all acted differently, and the learning curve for each was steep enough to hamper productivity. Having all of our systems integrated in a single workflow now simplifies the publishing process considerably. Our editors and executives learn the system once, and can operate any of our sites, publishing virtually any type of content with ease."
Within the LDSP interface, customers employing Limelight's integrated offering can now:
- Combine video and web content into a single content workflow
- Access an integrated view of the video repository
- View, edit, and update video asset metadata
- Associate video assets with other web content, including text, images, and documents

- Set permissions associated with video assets and video channel management
- Access all video channel management features, including creating, editing, and deleting video channels
- Publish and un-publish video channels
