Limelight Networks Releases Several Enhancements to Its Integrated Web Content Management and Video Platform Offering

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.(22 May 2012)

 

Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:LLNW) 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. A short version of this demonstration can be seen at

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
 --  Publish and seamlessly reuse video assets across multiple websites and
     mobile websites
 --  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
 --  Select multiple video assets for categorization simultaneously
 --  Select and add multiple videos into single or multiple channels
     simultaneously


Limelight's combined web content management and online video platform
service is a fundamental component of Limelight's end-to-end solutions for
digital marketers and publishers. Its additional integrated cloud-based
applications include Limelight Accelerate for web, mobile, and application
acceleration, Limelight Reach Video and Limelight Reach Ads for mobile video
distribution and monetization, and Limelight Deliver for content delivery.

computing platform, which delivers broadcast-quality content at
lightning-fast speeds regardless of traffic peaks or end user location.
Limelight's complete offering allows customers to rapidly upload, manage,
publish, and analyze their online and mobile content, and optimize the
performance of their online and mobile sites.

"As websites become the primary source of information for consumers and
business buyers, publishers and marketers more than ever are tasked with
providing engaging, relevant, and timely content," comments David Hatfield,
Senior Vice President, Limelight Networks. "Managing, publishing, and
delivering this content using disparate point systems is cumbersome and
costly. To meet the challenges they face today, marketers and publishers
require a powerful, unified system that allows them to quickly and
cost-effectively manage a digital presence that drives site traffic and
builds brand loyalty."
