Published: 23 Sep 2007
The channel will offer original travel programming over the Internet.
The lonelyplanet.tv website went live in April with six channels and more than 75 videos. The site has since grown to encompass more than 1,600 videos
The new online video network showcases user-created videos as well as original documentaries produced by Lonely Planet Television. Viewers can share their travel adventures by uploading three- to five-minute videos from a computer, cell phone or web cam.
Limelight enables lonelyplanet.tv to provide a high-quality video experience to the more than 160,000 and growing globetrotters that visit lonelyplanet.tv each month by maintaining performance levels as traffic, file size and content collections increase.
As social networking sites continue to expand, Limelight is helping companies like Lonely Planet utilise video to enhance their sites and bring individuals with common interests together through creating and sharing of online media.
“Our community is very dedicated and interactive. There are a lot of great forums happening on our Web site,” said Sohail Dahdal, Digital Manager, lonelyplanet.tv.
Limelight’s CDN platform was designed specifically to deliver the rich digital content.
