Move Networks lays off workforce, looks for buyer

Move Networks, a market leader in adaptive bitrate streaming for over-the-top delivery of online video, is seeking a buyer, has laid off much of its staff and says President and CEO Roxanne Austin is stepping down immediately.

Andy Tarczon, a founding partner at  the Diffusion Group said Move's demise isn't much of a surprise. The company has wallowed of late, brought in only $3 million of a hoped--for $20 million in its last funding round and has lost some of its largest customers, including Fox.

Move's adaptive bitrate technology, he said, provided "the best quality video experience online."
