Wochit, the creator of the revolutionary video creation platform, announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnMedia Top 100 Winners in the Consumer Services: Online Content Publishers category.
Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Wochit was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“This year’s OnMedia 100 winners are building on successes in digital media and branching out into new territory, taking advantage of today’s advances in cloud computing and other on-demand services. Social commerce is flourishing, bringing prosperity to a wide variety of retail markets. Payment options are becoming even more user-friendly and secure. And advertising, marketing, and PR companies are using the recent data explosion to break down established practices and bring people what they want—exactly when they want it,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “OnMedia 100 winners continue to open up new ways for consumers to connect with goods and services. Innovation in the digital media sector shows no sign of slowing down, and we predict even more growth and positive disruption coming during the next few years.”
The OnMedia 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted an intensive three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
“We are honored to have been selected as a 2014 OnMedia 100 Winner,” says Dror Ginzberg, Chief Executive Officer of Wochit. “This year’s winners are truly the most ingenious technologies and being included reinstates Wochit’s vision of and dedication to transforming the video creation landscape.”
