Streaming Media West 2013

MEDFORD, N.J.--()--StreamingMedia.com, producer of the most prestigious and widely acclaimed events for the business and technology of streaming and online video, today announced the winners of its yearly Readers’ Choice Awards at the Streaming Media West Conference in Huntington Beach, Calif.

The Readers’ Choice Awards are selected each year by the readers of Streaming Media magazine and StreamingMedia.com. The process began with more than 300 nominees, and during the course of 6 weeks of voting, readers selected their favorite nominees in 26 categories.

"The competition was close in almost all the categories, and—as is always the case—some relatively new entrants found their way to the top alongside names that have been part of our industry for a decade or longer," said StreamingMedia.com editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. "The online video landscape is changing, and a look at the results shows that nobody can rest on their laurels and hope to stay ahead of the pack."
