While the big streaming services and tentpole events get all the attention, technology creators and partners often toil behind the scenes to make it all happen.
MEDFORD, N.J. (PRWEB) October 10, 2016
Streaming Media magazine and StreamingMedia.com, the leading publication and website focused on online video, have announced the annual list of the 100 Companies That Matter Most in Online Video.
This list recognizes companies making an impact on the online video ecosystem and 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.
“While the big streaming services and tentpole events get all the attention, technology creators and partners often toil behind the scenes to make it all happen. The Streaming Media 100 is our annual attempt to shine the spotlight on the companies that enable the creation and delivery of all of that amazing content,” says Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media. “These companies are the ones that our editors and contributors have determined to be the cream of the crop—the most important, most innovative, and most influential companies providing streaming and OTT technologies, products, and services. Congratulations to all 100 of them.”
How We Choose the Streaming Media 100
We start with a master list of all the vendors in the online video space, then ask our editorial and publishing team to rank them on a scale of 1 (doesn’t belong on the final list at all) to 5 (no list of the most important companies would be complete without it). The top 100 make the list. (The Streaming Media 100 focuses exclusively on companies with headquarters in the United States. Later this year, we will publish a similar list, the Streaming Media Europe 101, focusing on companies with headquarters in Europe.)
Here's just a few of the companies that made this year's Streaming Media 100 list:
MLB Advance Media
Roland Systems Group
Verizon Digital Media Services
Wowza Media Systems
This list has been released in advance of the Streaming Media West Conference, taking place November 1-2 (http://www.streamingmedia.com/West), where many of the Top 100 will be represented. Some will have speakers at the podium, while others will be displaying on the exhibit floor so show attendees can see firsthand the impact they are having on streaming media.
