NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 25, 2011) - As the internet world continues to grow, the content delivery industry has garnered significant notoriety in the technology sector.

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. Additionally, GIA says that growth of video content over the Internet, increasing use of Internet for transfer of rich content, and consistent use of Internet among business sector for information exchange and communication are driving the CDN market.

Raystream provides proprietary video compression technology to businesses and consumers worldwide. "Only so much information can travel over even a high-speed Internet connection at one time," said Raystream CEO Brian Petersen. "Because video files are so huge -- especially HD video files -- they often take several minutes to load, then stop or buffer while playing. But with Raystream, viewers get a crystal-clear, sharp video that begins instantly and streams smoothly, without stopping, buffering or reloading."
