Publish date:

October 25, 2012 -- Markham, Ontario:

Digital Rapids

announced today that the company's

StreamZ Live

family of multi-screen streaming encoders has won the 2012

Streaming Media

Readers' Choice Award in the "MSO -- OTT Solution" category. The award was presented during the Streaming Media West conference and exhibition in Los Angeles.

Now in their sixth year, the Readers' Choice Awards are held annually by

Streaming Media

magazine to honor the leading online video solutions as judged by end-users, rather than by the magazine staff. More than 58,000 votes were cast in this year's balloting for more than 350 products, services and companies in categories spanning the online video ecosystem.

The award is the seventh

Streaming Media

Readers' Choice Award won by Digital Rapids. Earlier last month, Digital Rapids was also named to the 2012

Streaming Media 100

as one of the "companies that matter most in online video" by the magazine's own panel of experts.

"Multi-system cable operators (MSOs) and, more broadly, multi-channel video programming distributors (MVPDs) increasingly consider multi-screen video delivery to be intrinsic to their core revenue strategies. Online video and initiatives such as 'TV Everywhere' have evolved from simply being value-adds for subscribers to becoming necessities for operators striving to expand, engage and retain those audiences," said Tony Huang, Senior Product Manager, Broadcast and Live at Digital Rapids. "We're thrilled that the readers of

Streaming Media

magazine continue to recognize StreamZ Live as the ideal encoding solution for enabling premium service operators to deliver superior live and linear multi-screen video experiences."

The StreamZ Live encoder family is part of Digital Rapids' comprehensive portfolio of media transformation and workflow solutions for revenue-expanding live and on-demand multi-screen video operations. Powering applications from online and mobile video to over-the-top (OTT) services and IPTV, StreamZ Live's rich, extensible output capabilities are ideal for capitalizing on today's lucrative multi-screen content distribution opportunities, allowing content and rights owners to efficiently reach viewers on devices from tablets and mobile phones to game consoles, PCs and 'smart' TVs.
