BitGravity has built the first CDN for Interactive Broadcasting, which is optimized to deliver affordable, HD-quality video on demand, live broadcasts, and interactive applications for massive audiences on the Internet. BitGravity's patent-pending CDN is Tier 1, highly scalable, and delivers the performance that consumers want and expect, including streaming videos that play instantly, and live video with no buffering. The company is based in Burlingame, Calif and is privately funded.
BitGravity was founded in early 2006 by technology pioneers Perry Wu and Barrett Lyon. They have made careers of advancing the Internet and have personally been involved with many firsts on the Internet including the first hosting relationship, the first VOIP network, the first low-latency gaming network, and the first defensive network. Now, they have created the first content hosting network that is enabling a new wave of media properties to leap ahead of their predecessors in terms of quality and interactivity.
The mission does not end here, however. It continues with you, your content, your imagination and your decision to bring the best possible experiences to your customers.
