Primerica Uses Limelight Networks to Live Stream Company Meetings and Store Videos for On-Demand Viewing on Multiple Devices


TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, (Nasdaq:LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, announced today that Primerica is using its Content Delivery Network (CDN) for company-wide live broadcasts and for on-demand viewing of hundreds of training and recognition videos.

“Before Limelight, we couldn’t deliver live video to all of our employees simultaneously,” said Mike Ziegenbein, VP and Chief Engineer at Primerica. “Now we can get a live broadcast to more than 10,000 viewers without a problem. We know an event of this scale won’t be an issue.”

Primerica regularly shares company news, training and hosts virtual meetings with its 2,000 employees and nearly 118,000 independent contractors across North America through the Limelight Orchestrate Platform. The company uses The Limelight Orchestrate Platform to manage, store and secure live and on-demand video for live broadcasts, some of which are remote and all of which are stored for on-demand viewing.

With Limelight, Primerica managers are now able to easily upload videos from their mobile phones and send them to employees for viewing on any internet connected device. Just as importantly, management can remove unwanted content from across Primerica’s vast library in seconds with Limelight’s SmartPurge.

"Employee expectations for corporate broadcasts and video on-demand match those of the most demanding customers," said Nigel Burmeister, vice president, global marketing at Limelight Networks. "Limelight is a recognized leader in storing, managing and delivering content on the internet and our ability to purge obsolete, malicious or corrupted content in seconds is truly best-in-class. Our capabilities are well suited for helping companies like Primerica improve their workflow and better engage and retain their employees and contractors."
