Pop the champagne and crank up the party jams: Ustream is the winner of two 2014 Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Awards, for Live Video Platform and Video Advertising Solution for its LiveAd technology!
This year, the readers of Streaming Media voted for their favorites in a record-setting 31 categories. On November 19th, the winners were announced at the Streaming Media West conference in Huntington Beach, California, which was broadcast live via Ustream.
Not only is this the highest honor in our industry — it’s also the only awards program decided by the end users (that’s you!). So as you can imagine, we’re feeling pretty darn proud.
Here’s our Sales Engineering Manager, Scott Grizzle, accepting the awards on behalf of the Ustream team:
We’re especially thrilled to see LiveAd take home the Video Advertising Solution award. We built LiveAd to offer our clients a more impactful, engaging advertising experience, and to see it emerge as the top vote-getter in its category tells us that, to paraphrase Sally Field, “You like it! You really, really like it!”
So, from the bottom of our humble little hearts, thank you, thank you, thank you for your votes, for your support, and for being the best darn fans a team could ask for!
