MEDFORD, NJ (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Streaming Media magazine and StreamingMedia.com, the leading publication and website focused on online video, announced the annual list of the 100 Companies That Matter Most in Online Video. The Top 100 list recognizes companies which have had a significant impact on the online video ecosystem. “We began with a list of more than 250 companies, then asked Streaming Media’s editorial and publishing staff to rank each one on a scale of 1 (doesn’t belong on the list at all) to 5 (absolutely must be on the list if the list is to have any credibility),” said Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “After the votes were cast, only three companies averaged a perfect 5, and every company in the final 100 averaged at least a 2.5. To give you a sense of the spread, all of the companies in the top 50 scored at least a 3.3. These are truly the cream of the crop in our industry.”
The list helps to show where the industry is headed and who is driving that movement. The Streaming Media 100 list includes a variety of companies, from small startups to large, publicly traded entities.
“As the number of companies in our space has grown, we’ve narrowed the purview of the Streaming Media 100 to focus exclusively on what we call ‘the enablers,’” Schumacher-Rasmussen continued. “The companies in the Streaming Media 100 are the technology leaders and innovators that make it possible for video publishers in all verticals—entertainment, education, enterprise, and government—to get their content to their viewers efficiently and effectively, and to maximize ROI to boot.”
