Conviva, the global leader in preemptive video stream optimization, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as a OnDemand Top 100 winner. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Conviva was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“Conviva is honored to be recognized alongside other forward-thinking companies making strides in the digital media space,” said Darren Feher, CEO of Conviva. “We are committed to ensuring viewers receive the high quality video they expect, streamline the adoption of OTT video everywhere as well as continue to apply our innovative techniques of SDN (Software Defined Network) to enhancing the video experience.”
Conviva and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on May 20th, 2013, at Hewlett-Packard’s Executive Briefing Center in Palo Alto, CA.
“The world of the cloud is beginning to live up to its promise of expanding and enhancing almost every sector of the technology world. Public, private, and hybrid, the cloud infrastructure companies that can provide the most robust, always-on performance are the ones that are propelling us into a completely new digital age,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners represent the companies that are not only providing the space to develop daring, indispensible applications for a growing and increasingly mobile universe, they’re making sure that everyone has their information, data, media, and apps whenever and wherever they happen to be. “
