Markham, Ontario: Digital Rapids -- the trusted provider of innovative media transformation and workflow solutions for bringing video to wider audiences -- has been named to the 2012 Streaming Media 100, Streaming Media magazine's second annual list of "the 100 companies that matter most in online video."
The Streaming Media 100 list recognizes companies that have had a significant impact on the online video ecosystem, as deemed by a panel of 11 industry experts and Streaming Media editors. From an initial list of over 200 companies under consideration, the judges selected the top 100 by the current contributions these companies are making to the online video industry. Companies evaluated spanned the entire online video ecosystem, from technology and service providers to content owners and producers, and from small startups to large publicly-traded entities.
"The Streaming Media 100 has already become our most anticipated recognition program in only its second year of existence. It helps show where the industry is headed and who is driving that movement," said Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media magazine and StreamingMedia.com. "We hope the list helps separate the fly-by-nights from the ones with staying power, and the has-beens from the veteran companies that continue to innovate and grow not just their customer base but the industry as a whole."
"We're pleased to again be recognized by Streaming Media's panel of experts as one of the companies making the most impact in online video," said Brick Eksten, President and CEO of Digital Rapids Corporation. "Multi-screen video is more intrinsic to the premium media and entertainment landscape and to enterprise communications than ever before, and we're proud of the role our company and our exceptional employees are playing in enabling our customers' success."
