London, UK (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Mydeo.com, the UK video hosting company, is in the running for 'Best Streaming Service' at the ISPA Awards 2008. Mydeo was selected from a wide range of streaming services and is now a finalist competing for one of the industry's most coveted awards.
It's the third year in a row Mydeo has been named a finalist for the 'Best Streaming Service Award' which is presented to the company that provided its customers with the best possible service during 2007. The award will be judged on strict criteria including network performance, value for money, value added service and customer care.
Cary Marsh, Mydeo's CEO and Co-Founder, comments: "We're delighted to be nominated for this award again in 2008. I want Mydeo to be the trusted face of video hosting for consumers and small businesses - high quality, no adverts, and secure. We strive to leverage a simple, clean user experience, a passionate customer service ethic and an excellence in streaming quality. It's wonderful to be recognised for our achievements."
The ISPAs - the UK Internet Industry Awards - are unique as the winners are voted for by their industry peers. The Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA UK) has been organizing the competition since 1999 to champion the best of the internet industry and to celebrate innovation and best practice.
Launched in 2005 by Cary Marsh and Iain Millar, Mydeo won a Research & Development Grant for Technical Innovation from the UK Department of Trade and Industry. Mydeo provides quality global streaming video hosting for home and business users. The site provides simple online tools that help users upload and distribute videos to friends, family, customers and prospects, as well as live statistics to track how popular videos have been. Microsoft's first and only European Windows Movie Maker hosting partner, the service now has close to 200,000 users spanning over 180 countries.
Mydeo uses the Limelight Networks for global storage and delivery together with secure streaming to guarantee security for Mydeo users' content. This means that consumers and small businesses can enjoy the quality and reliability of a world-leading streaming network, something they would never have been able to purchase directly.
