TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, will announce new enhancements to its Video Delivery Services at the 2017 NAB Show to ensure the delivery of consistent high-quality digital experiences.

Limelight’s Video Delivery Services leverage Limelight’s market-leading CDN to deliver the largest live and video on-demand events at broadcast quality to virtually any device, anywhere. New features and enhancements will provide added functionality for content conversion, playback, delivery, and monetization. These include:

  • DRM Support: Limelight has partnered with BuyDRM, a leading provider of Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions, to offer DRM content protection supporting Microsoft PlayReady, Google WideVine and Apple FairPlay. DRM protects content by controlling what end users can do with video streams, such as sharing, recording, or view only.

In addition, Limelight continues its support of RTMP/Flash streaming while continuing development in support of emerging low-latency web streaming standards.
  • Live to VOD Recording: Limelight is also announcing the upcoming ability to simultaneously stream live video while recording it for subsequent use as video on demand content. The live streams will be captured in Limelight Origin Storage and automatically converted to popular VOD formats during later playback.
  • Live Streaming from Mobile Devices: Users can now live stream from Android and iOS mobile devices directly to Limelight MMD Live service via Larix Broadcaster, a free application available in Google Play and Apple AppStore.

"Mobile devices are changing the world today and transforming how content distributors create, prepare and deliver digital media," said Christopher Levy, CEO & Founderof BuyDRM. "Working with Limelight, we can securely streamline and automate that process so customers can get to market faster while maintaining their content's security."
