Akamai/Vubiquity Win MCN Innovator Award

We're thrilled that Multichannel News has recognized Akamai's joint Content-as-a-Service (CaaS) offering with Vubiquity as one of its inaugural Innovator Award winners. According to the publication, the awards are intended to "honor distinctive new products at the 2014 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo," which took place in Denver this week. Winners were "selected by a panel of cable executives and Multichannel News contributors."
multichannel blog.pngAkamai and Vubiquity's joint CaaS offering, which we announced earlier this year, is designed to help network service providers and content owners efficiently and cost effectively launch OTT video services. It combines the Akamai Intelligent Platform with Vubiquity's AnyVU Cloud to form cloud-based content worfkflows, storage and delivery at a global scale with a robust content library.

In presenting the award, Multichannel News wrote in part: "CaaS eliminates the bewildering complexity and greatly reduces the expense of introducing multiplatform entertainment services for service providers and content owners. As a result, CaaS is positioned to be as much a game-changer in the digital video market as 'software as a service' was in business software."
