BitGravity Gets to the Punch Line With CollegeHumor.com

CollegeHumor.com Selects BitGravity’s Content Delivery Network to Provide High-Definition Video Sharing and Object Delivery

BURLINGAME, CA–(EMWNews – August 14, 2008) – BitGravity, Inc., provider of

next-generation Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) for interactive

broadcasting, and CollegeHumor.com, the definitive source for irreverent

student humor and co-ed pop culture, today announced a partnership wherein

BitGravity will provide high-definition object and video delivery for the

CollegeHumor website. BitGravity’s high-definition, fast-loading content

delivery provides an unprecedented high-quality experience for CollegeHumor

fans. In addition, BitGravity’s scalability and competitive pricing made it

the first choice for CollegeHumor’s growing need for a new delivery network

capable of supporting their galleries of images and videos.

“CollegeHumor has a rapidly growing fan base and BitGravity’s highly

scalable platform is exactly what we needed to deliver the highest quality

video and user experience,” said Kunal Shah, VP of Technology for

CollegeHumor. “CollegeHumor is thrilled to be using BitGravity’s

state-of-the-art technology to solidify our presence as a mainstay for

collegiate entertainment on the Internet.”

“Timing and delivery is everything in comedy, and we’re pleased to provide

CollegeHumor viewers an unmatched user experience, including a quick start

with no delay or buffering and HD quality video,” said Perry Wu, CEO of

BitGravity. “BitGravity’s delivery ensures that CollegeHumor users can view

and share content at unparalleled speed and quality.”

BitGravity’s network is based on optimized routing methodology and network

innovations and is over four times faster than other leading CDNs. It was

purpose-built by seasoned technologists with extensive expertise in global

technology infrastructures, systems engineering and application

development, allowing maximum performance through a much smaller and more

nimble network than typical CDNs.
