Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, Editor of Streaming Media magazine, was encouraged by the excellent response to the reader voting system. "This year's Readers' Choice Awards presented more than 200 different products and services from more than 150 different companies from around the world, " he said. "The fact that there's so much competition for these awards is a reflection of just how many competitive solutions are now available to consumers, enterprises, and educational institutions looking for online video solutions; the fact that nearly 4,000 Streaming Media readers voted in the awards shows just how passionately they feel about the tools they've chosen. Regardless of who the ultimate winners are, that's something we can all celebrate."
