CDN acceleration to scale to global news audience for RT
RT is a global TV news network with seven TV channels, digital platforms in six languages, and a video news agency RUPTLY. It has a weekly TV audience of 70 million viewers across 38 countries.
In order to scale profitably to growing audiences across the world, the company has chosen Streamroot’s peer-to-peer delivery network on top of its existing content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure. It has implemented Streamroot’s CDN acceleration technology across its Russian, English and Arabic channels, as well as its documentary offering. Streamroot is not only helping the global round-the-clock news network to deliver video content efficiently, but also helping to achieve unparalleled global reach, improved scale and higher viewing quality, while reducing the cost of delivery as the platform continues to grow.View Press Release Read full case-study
Streamroot is the perfect addition to our delivery infrastructure. Its distributed mesh network architecture easily accommodates our growth, while the company’s fixed-fee delivery model allows us to expand both our video services and our user base without further investment in over-the-top delivery.Ivan Lysenko
