Firms focused on content delivery are increasingly looking to cloud computing to boost customer appeal. With cloud services requiring more bandwidth due to high quality media, content delivery networks find themselves in higher demand. A report from Global Industry Analysts (GIA) estimates that the global Content Delivery Network (CDN) market is projected to reach $4.7 billion by 2015. According to the report, key factors driving market growth include increased penetration of broadband services and expanding deployments of rich-media files across media, enterprise and entertainment.

Online video -- for example YouTube -- is booming. Credit Suisse estimates that 375 million people worldwide will watch 75 billion YouTube videos this year. One of the chief complaints regarding online video is picture quality. Raystream Inc. argues that its so-called "Compression Service" enables on-demand delivery of crystal-clear high-definition video using a company's existing network footprint. Last month the company announced it has signed its first customer contract with edgefactory OMNIMEDIA for a variable use license of the Raystream Compression Service.
