Through Akamai, who powers both Netflix and Apple, DaCast users have access to the world’s largest server infrastructure. This allows them to not only reach any device with a rich video experience, but also target the largest geographic distribution possible.

This new service is available directly from the DaCast cloud. This allows for do it yourself video management while presenting content in a wide range of places. Possible embed locations include broadcaster websites and Facebook pages.

“The value of a video platform is its ability to reduce the technical complexity and a means to effectively deliver that content to an end viewer”, said Aldric Feuillebois, CTO of DaCast. “With this new agreement and our unique approach to video delivery, we have removed the last of the barriers. This allows our expansive broadcaster base to reach an audience regardless of individual setup. It effectively overcomes the number one headache in the online video market today from the increasing rise of mobile devices.”
