The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has selected cloud computing and web service provider, Leaseweb, as the preferred international distributor for Eurovision Flow. Leaseweb will also contribute its cutting-edge Multi-CDN solutions to the stack of services provided in Eurovision Flow. The agreement will accommodate the growth of Eurovision Flow, which has become one of the most trusted brands for premium Multi-CDN services.
The EBU created Eurovision Flow four years ago to help its members reduce the costs of online media delivery while also improving its service’s quality of experience. “The higher cost of online delivery can put a strain on the budgets of public service media as their online services are growing in popularity,” the EBU’s Product Owner, Bram Tullemans, explained. “With Eurovision Flow we provide a convenient solution that maximises quality of experience and leverages economies of scale to achieve a price point that is difficult to attain by individual organisations. In Leaseweb we found an ideal partner to accommodate the service’s rapid growth.”
“We’ve witnessed an uptake of Multi-CDN solutions over the last few years in various markets, with these solutions being deployed to improve the end user experience,” said Wilfried Dudink, Managing Director of Leaseweb CDN.
