Pando Publisher is a web-based media console and peer-assisted content delivery service that enables commercial content owners and media companies to publish, distribute, track and monetize full-screen HD-quality video, with unlimited audiences, at radically reduced delivery costs. P2P Streaming, download and RSS delivery methods are supported. Pando Publisher works with existing CDN Web servers, without any configuration or additional software/hardware to intelligently offload peak bandwidth from the web server to the peer cloud. In-effect Pando turns any standard web server into a P2P supernode. This means that publishers can accelerate their web-based media files that they’ve already published to their CDN and save money on bandwidth costs, not to mention ensure they’ll never pay overage charges again. A Pando Publisher API is available for CDNs, CMS and online video publishing providers to integrate Pando Publisher web services and reporting into their existing media consoles.
