Media & Entertainment
Every day publishing companies, both large and small, are relying on our expertise and quality of service for handling their online storage and delivery needs. This way, they can make sure that all users have an optimal experience, regardless of device, location, or connection speed. The Rambla CDN allows them to dramatically accelerate the delivery of rich media and provides reliable connections to all users at all times. Our services also make it easy for publishers to extend their reach by delivering their (live or on-demand) media to smartphones, tablets and other devices.
How can we help you ?
Deliver quality, fast
Extend your reach
- Our hosting and streaming services allow you to reach all popular devices and platforms, once your video has been uploaded to the CDN.
- Automatically encode your video into different formats and get them published on the CDN, ready to be delivered using HTTP dynamic streaming (for iDevices, Flash and Silverlight). This new streaming technique allows clients to automatically switch between different video streams during playback, to ensure the highest possible video quality with minimum buffering and startup time.
- Are you planning to broadcast a live-event or launch an IPTV channel ? You can count on our live experience to make this a success.
Integrate & automate
- Use our API's to seamlessly integrate our services into your existing publishing platform. Integration can be as deep or as shallow as you like it to be. In addition, our Control Panel enables you to easily manage your media, get access to advanced reporting and media analytics, provide third party access, and much more.
- Apart from our API's, we have several other building blocks to help you automate your workflow with minimal effort. Or we can create a custom solution tailored to your needs.
Monetize your media
- Our services allow you to limit user access to your content in accordance with your revenue model (subscription, pay-per-view...). Need a proprietary solution? We can customize our services to help you implement the right model for your business.
- You can easily extend or resell our services to your commercial partners. Create separate Rambla user accounts for them, to give them full access to our content delivery services. At the same time you get exclusive access to all billing information, allowing you to follow-up on costs on a per-account basis.
- Our pay what you use model ensures that you incur no unnecessary costs. Most other CDN's require subscription fees and/or demand you to purchase monthly blocks of traffic, with limited burst capacities. We give you complete access to our services and only charge you when you actually use them. As you generate larger traffic volumes, you can get discounts by ordering credits in bulk or on a contractual basis.
