Oct 10th, 2007 | By | Category: Podcasting Services

BitTorrent, Inc. today announced the general availability of the BitTorrent Delivery Network Accelerator (DNA) service. BitTorrent DNA is a peer-accelerated content delivery service. Internet TV platform Brightcove will be the first to integrate BitTorrent DNA to accelerate the delivery of broadcast-quality streaming video to their customers.

The DNA content delivery service is targeted at the needs of commercial content publishers. According to BitTorrent, DNA provides fast downloads for large files like feature-length movies, games, software programs, and makes it possible to stream broadcast-quality video.

“Internet TV started with short videos on websites, but the next step is to move seamlessly from contextual video into full-screen, full-length programming,” said Jeremy Allaire, Brightcove chairman and chief executive officer. “BitTorrent DNA addresses fundamental technology challenges associated with high-quality media delivery online, and by integrating it into a new offering in our Internet TV service, we can give our content publishers the option to easily deliver full-screen, broadcast-quality streaming video to their viewers.”
