Manufacturers of devices

Your users rely on devices every day to communicate, share what’s happening in their lives, stay in touch with friends and relatives, play games, or track health and fitness. We provide the update and download solutions so you can deliver a robust user touchpoint experience.

"Our primary objective was a stable integrated system for providing our website visitors with the same smooth and intuitive experience that our games deliver on the Nintendo game consoles. If today’s gaming consoles deliver HD video, the videos on the web should offer HD quality too. I am very pleased with our results with Limelight. The video experiences that we provide across our websites have substantially improved which has increased the number of videos being requested. The programming interface is excellent and offers plenty of options for the future. We can finally focus on our core business: creating content and great user experiences."
- ENIS SARI, Manager Online Service Team, Nintendo Europe
