EdgeCast, ClickStreamTV team to offer affordable online video delivery to small businesses

Content delivery network EdgeCast has teamed up with ClickStreamTV on a no-commitment, pay-as-you-go CDN platform for smaller businesses looking to maximize their online video delivery that otherwise might not be able to afford the service.

ClickStreamTV will offer the EdgeCast-powered CDN that will be self-provisioning and have a simple user interface designed for non-technical users.

"Our customers realize the power of online video, but Internet congestion is unpredictable, especially when there's no way to know what part of the world your next viewer will be coming from," said Kevin Yahl, founder and CEO of ClickStreamTV. "Opening up the EdgeCast network to these customers will solve the vast majority of their streaming and delivery problems."

EdgeCast has sixteen global points of presence and is interconnects with more than 850 user networks around the world. The partnership with ClickStreamTV, said EdgeCast president and co-founder James Segil, is "a win-win equation."

"Enabling ClickStreamTV's pay-as-you-go CDN service is exciting for us, because it enables us to help smaller businesses we might otherwise miss," said Segil.

ClickStreamTV offers a platform-neutral video delivery service. Customers ranging from sports promoters to legal educators have used the ClickStreamTV platform to stream video of product demos, entertainment, and live sports events. Business owners can stream content without charging viewers (such as with pre-sales demos) or they can offer content on a pay-per-view basis using ClickStreamTV's CMS and payment technologies. The service, said ClickStreamTV, enables small businesses to leverage a global content delivery service without making any bandwidth or spending commitments.

The ClickStreamTV service is available immediately.
