Behind the Scenes at the Olympics

If a CDN does its job correctly, the audience should never know it is there. That’s because viewers should be able to focus on the content of the media, instead of dealing with technology issues like waiting rooms, video stuttering, or worse.

In an event like the Olympics, there were many engineers working behind the scenes 24×7 here at Limelight Networks to make sure the viewing audience didn’t notice us and instead could focus on the stories that were unfolding at the Games. We caught up with a few of our engineering crew as they were on a break, in an effort to document a bit of the behind-the-scenes happenings during the production of the Games. These engineers keep our customers in the limelight every day, and now, for six minutes, its their turn. Enjoy!

  1. This was a very successful series of live, very complex webcasts. The masters was also a great showcase for live Adobe flash — but, what do you suppose happened with the NFL? Did you guys do that one at all or was it Akamai?

    Best,
