Limelight Powers DISH Media Sales Presentation The Limelight Orchestrate™ Platform Delivers Streaming Video for DISH's Advertising Sales Force
TEMPE, Ariz., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW) a leader in digital presence management, today announced that it is powering media delivery for DISH Media Sales' cutting-edge presentations. DISH empowers its sales teams with graphics and video content. The Limelight Orchestrate™ ("Orchestrate") platform guarantees these mission critical sales materials are quickly accessible anywhere, and are delivered with high-performance and high quality.
DISH, renowned for the high quality of its consumer video delivery, is matching that brand by utilizing the Limelight Orchestrate Video Platform to deliver content for its advertising sales presentations through software developed by Sales Graphics called CustomShow.
"By using Orchestrate Video with CustomShow from Sales Graphics, we deploy presentations with ease across our national sales team," said Adam Gaynor, Director of National Advertising Sales for DISH. "If we need to make adjustments to our presentation, changes are enacted immediately, updating the presentation on each of our sales teams' devices, from their laptops to their tablets. We are able to trust that everyone is delivering a consistent, high-impact message, with top notch picture and video quality, thanks to the Limelight platform from Sales Graphics."
An increasing number of companies recognize that rich-media content is critical for marketing and sales efforts, and that company presentations are no longer confined to corporate boardrooms. By leveraging Limelight and its massively provisioned global computing platform, businesses can ensure that such live and on-demand video content is not only available to sales associates in different locations, but also delivered with the highest quality, and on the most convenient devices for customer interaction.
Additionally, the award winning Limelight Orchestrate Video Platform helps companies manage their entire online video workflow, supporting sales and marketing outreach across multiple platforms. The Orchestrate platform is a powerful suite of cloud-based services, including an online video platform, that enables companies to create and deliver a consistent content experience across web, tablet, mobile, social and large screen channels.
"CustomShow software is ideal because it provides a central library of content that can be easily accessed on the go and customized for individual sales presentations. CustomShow is working with Limelight for media delivery support for the rich content included in our users' presentations, and it is through that relationship that top-tier companies are able to take advantage of such a robust, yet flexible presentation platform," said Paul Shapiro, Vice President of Sales Graphics.
"DISH Media Sales understands the importance of sharing its story, and they value the ability to customize media-rich presentations based on each of its audiences. We are proud to be working with Sales Graphics to support DISH Media Sales' need for high-quality content across multiple devices," said Kirby Wadsworth, chief marketing officer at Limelight Networks.
