SXSW Goes Live Online with Limelight Networks

The South by Southwest conference is a world unto itself, but for the first time ever, even if you can’t make it down to Austin for the event, you can experience the buzz of SXSW through a live video stream of interactive keynotes and featured speaker presentations. We are powering the feed with the Limelight Video Platform, which includes both new live streaming capabilities, and integration with our content delivery network services. The CDN integration was a strong draw for SXSW when they brought us on board, and that combination of content management and delivery is a prime differentiator for our platform.

Want to see a little of SXSW for yourself? The live stream started this past weekend and continues today and tomorrow over at the conference site and on various sponsor websites.

Want live streaming for your own website? Check out some of the new features in the Limelight Video Platform:

  • Live and on-demand video streams supported, with no publishing delay after a live feed is created in the player console
  • Multiple customization options for live video streams including custom players and playlists
  • Players, playlists, and metadata cached at the edge, with all content delivered over our optimized network platform
