What’s the most important feature of a CDN? Good news, we have it.

cdn featuresWhat’s the most important feature of a CDN? Most organisations that stream a lot of video know the value of a content delivery network (CDN). But what is the most important feature for the most critical video content? That was one of the questions in a survey conducted by They asked more than 1,100 people about their personal video consumption habits and their professional streaming needs when it came to CDNs.

The results of the survey indicated that the ability to stream to multiple screens and multiple devices was the number one feature they needed from a CDN. If you look at the makeup of the devices today’s video consumers use, it isn’t hard to see why companies are looking for ways to ensure their content works on all devices and screen sizes.

On a follow up question, respondents said their main limiting factor for CDN use was price control. Companies are trying to find the ability to stream to everyone, on every device without breaking their budgets.
