Fastly offers large video streaming customers the ability to decrease origin traffic by reducing multiple CDN requests down to a single request back to origin. Media Shield is designed to work with your existing workflows by making Fastly the origin to all of your end-user-serving CDNs. Specifically, Media Shield combines Fastly's origin shielding and request collapsing functionality, along with DNS mapping, to direct traffic to a subset of Fastly POP locations.
