CDNetworks (KOSDAQ: 073710), a top-three global, full-service content delivery network (CDN), announced today that MrsP.com, the new free children’s education and entertainment website created and produced by a team of Hollywood veterans, has selected CDNetworks as its exclusive provider of HD streaming video services and website acceleration services. CDNetworks was selected for its ability to deliver MrsP.com’s content with "effortless magic," to children around the world, using CDNetworks’ implementation of HD Adobe Flash Media Server 3, global network infrastructure, and leading-edge content delivery technologies.
MrsP.com’s goal is to inspire young people, ages 4-12, to use their imaginations and to spark a passion for books and reading. The website is subscription-free and contains no advertising. MrsP.com features well-known TV star, Kathy Kinney (who played Mimi Bobeck on the Drew Carey show) as Mrs. P, a redheaded Irishwoman who reads classic children’s stories from her "Magic Library." The HD video content, filmed by a Hollywood production crew, includes original illustrations or photographs to help tell the stories, but focuses primarily on the emotive performances of the storyteller. The site is created and produced, with top Hollywood production values, by Mrs P Enterprises, founded by Kinney, Hollywood-veteran TV writer Clay Graham, and former entertainment and New Media executive, Dana Plautz.
The MrsP.com website is a rich, multimedia experience filled with interactive features, images, audio, games, contests and videos. The primary content offered on MrsP.com is a library of original HD streaming videos, ranging from 5-30 minutes, offered by Mrs. P from her "Magic Library." MrsP.com’s creators and producers required content delivery technology and services that would support the mood of "effortless magic" on the video-heavy website, to ensure its young audience would have a smooth viewing experience.
"Waiting forever for videos to load, or for an image of Mrs. P to buffer, would take away from the charm of our site," said Clay Graham, Co-President of Mrs P Enterprises, LLC. "We are doing something that’s never been done before in a children’s website. The first companies we approached said what we wanted was technologically impossible. But CDNetworks knew just what to do."
"Delivering a rich media environment, without extreme load times for end users, was a key implementation challenge," said Dana Plautz, Co-President of MrsP.com. "CDNetworks offered us solutions to help navigate some of these content-management issues. With its global content delivery infrastructure and leading-edge CDN technology, CDNetworks enables an exceptionally high-quality video viewing experience for our young viewers, giving them a ‘magical’ Mrs. P experience."
"We are extremely pleased to be working with MrsP.com, which is a premiere example of a dynamic and innovative content provider in the entertainment sector," said Simon Lee, CEO of CDNetworks US. "CDNetworks is proud to offer a proven leading-edge, streaming-technology infrastructure, leveraging our deep experience in Adobe FMS 3, to guarantee a fast, reliable and fun end-user experience for their website’s young audience."
