In order to grow its service platform to provide video distribution, management and monetization services to an increasingly diverse market of media companies, brands and businesses, AnyClip needed a content delivery partner capable of reliably delivering enriched video content to digital video audiences around the world. AnyClip also wanted to offer its customers the ability to live stream online events globally in a cost-effective manner while at the same time enhancing the traditional viewing experience.
Edgio’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) has been securely delivering content for AnyClip’s primary markets in North America and the EU for 6 years. With new challenges to solve, AnyClip added Edgio’s Streaming, making it easy to transcode live video streams into multiple bitrates, execute on-the-fly transmuxing into different formats, and record live events for easy playback.
The addition of Edgio Streaming gave AnyClip the technical capability it needed to expand its business model to include support for live virtual events. They secured a partnership with a major tech innovator and helped their new client produce a live event with record-setting viewership.
With AnyClip’s holistic video distribution strategy with a long-tail VOD hub, the client’s event viewership increased by 24X compared to prior events. This event was widely regarded as the “The AI event of the year for business executives” and was the first all-virtual presentation of the client’s annual conference.
With Edgio, AnyClip was able to offer its client a truly robust virtual experience, including:
- Live Streaming of each day’s program using AnyClip’s editorial video players
- An always-on video hub page powered by AnyClip’s Luminous Watch technology
- Use AnyClip’s AI-driven editorial recommendation player to surface conference content to audiences before and after the show
- Data-powered engagement features that enhanced video experiences lifted exposure and increased conversion rates for sponsoring brands.
