SAN MATEO, CA.—Nov 08, 2013— Conviva, the global leader in preemptive video stream optimization, today announced that it has been chosen for the second consecutive year by AlwaysOn as an OnHollywood Top 100 Top Private Company. Conviva was recognized as a leader in “Content Delivery Platforms.”
Inclusion as an OnHollywood Top 100 Top Private Company signifies leadership amongst peers in creating viable business models for the digital entertainment marketplace and proven authority as a disruptor in the space.
“Conviva is honored to be recognized for the second consecutive year as an OnHollywood 100 Top Private Company,” said Hui Zhang, CEO of Conviva. “To be recognized alongside top innovators indicates the importance of and need for global intelligence in order to provide a consistently high quality viewing experience in digital media. Only Conviva has such comprehensive, granular ‘big data’ and utilizes it in our real-time processing platform to take preemptive action, providing a high-quality experience for every viewer.”
Conviva was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team, along with partners in the venture capital and investment community, and entertainment industry experts across the globe. Conviva stood out among other companies in the entrepreneurial ecosystem by continuing to innovate and disrupt an industry still depending on legacy infrastructure for its success. Inclusion as an OnHollywood 100 company was done based on a set of five criteria including innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Conviva Precision takes preemptive action to ensure a high quality video viewing experience for each and every viewer, strengthening brand profitability for its content publisher customers. Complementing Precision’s stream optimization, Conviva’s analytics offering, Insights, provides content owners and publishers the most detailed look into the Quality of Experience (QoE) of every single viewer accessing their content. By focusing on and improving the individual viewer’s video quality, viewers watch longer and return more often. Conviva’s 2013 Viewer Experience Report reveals that viewers with a buffer-free experience and high picture quality watch 250% longer.
“This year’s OnHollywood 100 is taking advantage of a new surge in mobile technology, social networking, and cloud infrastructure. As the digital pioneers of the new millennium focus on high-quality entertainment products, they rely on the companies in the Global Silicon Valley to give them stable, speedy platforms on which to host their art. Silicon Beach has firmly established itself as the place where the entertainment innovation community comes to develop quality television, film, and music and deliver it to a global audience,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This increasingly connected and mobile audience is discovering that today’s digital entertainment entrepreneurs are wherever and whenever the story is happening.”
