Blue Coat Optimized Video Delivery utilizes a combination of stream-splitting and caching technologies to prevent "video floods" that are caused when Internet video saturates a company's WAN or Internet gateway and keeps other applications from performing properly.
At the same time, Optimized Video Delivery also allows companies to expand the use of video internally for business content, training and communications without increasing bandwidth capacity. Optimized Video Delivery automatically minimizes bandwidth impact and improves user experience for the following types of video traffic:
- On-demand video internal to the company or from the Web
- Live streaming video from internal sources or from the Web
