  4. 4. Content Syndication and Monetization SolutionStorageBlue Wave dug in and assessed EVERY component required to effect quality media delivery. Along withassessing delivery methods, we had to analyze other ancillary services which support our clients’ needs.Once media is transcoded to our delivery service and ready for consumption, it is effectively “in thecloud”; however, many of our clients lack centralized,redundant storage of their valuable media assets. WithBlue Wave’s Solution, you will enjoy not only “stored fordelivery” services, but general storage in a separateinstance of our cloud as well. Our primary storagesolution stores your files “as uploaded” prior totranscoding. A copy of your raw media is stored securelyand ready for transcoding.

If your intent is to use Blue Wave’s Cloud storage as a primary media storage solution, checkwith our technical sales staff to explore security, redundancy, and availability options.Content Management and DeliveryOur Content Delivery Network (CDN) layer integrates the largest delivery network on the planet –comprised of over 100,000 globally distributed servers – to ensure your content is delivered effectively, efficiently, and with the quality you expect. Network latency, congestion, and packet loss can have a dramatic impact on media delivery. By leveraging thousands of edge servers, content is served “more locally” and the delivery infrastructure is dynamically managed to compensate for high- traffic hot spots and failures. Stuttering video and failures to load can quickly spell the end of any application and harm your brand, regardless of appearance or content quality. Our uncompromising delivery solutionensures your rich content is delivered with optimal quality and performance under all circumstances.Reach, scale, and availability are all important features every CDN should offer. Our CDN is specificallyoptimized for media content and reaches and scales based on intelligent balancing and delivery.Copyright © 2012 Blue Wave Media, Inc. September 18, 2012All rights reserved.
