Content owners should consider building their own television-focused CDNs, like Netflix – Videonet

Content owners and distributors should consider building their own television-focused CDN for their OTT services, according to Edgeware, which will use NAB to present research it commissioned showing when it makes sense to build rather than hire capacity. “This [build your own] is an approach that the major players like Netflix have taken. But as the popularity of OTT TV grows, it is becoming clear that it’s not just for the big guys,” says Edgeware CEO Joachim Roos. “Many of our customers have built their own TV CDNs, either to improve viewing quality or simply because the economics work better than paying into a CDN service every month.”
