Sorenson 360 Online Video Platform Allows Users to Encode, Manage and Deliver High-Quality Video
SAN DIEGO - Sorenson Media announced that its Sorenson 360 online video platform (OVP) won the 2013 Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Award for Best Online Video Platform. Presented at the Streaming Forum conference in London, the recognition builds on Sorenson 360’s standing reputation for high-quality, full-featured video management and delivery.
“The streaming media landscape is constantly evolving, and this year’s list demonstrates that while hardware remains central to our industry, cloud services are becoming ever-more important in the overall online video ecosystem.”
“It is a source of significant pride for our team to develop a product that is not only well respected in the industry, but also beloved by those who use it to achieve their online video needs,” said Mitch Holyoak, vice president of engineering for Sorenson Media. “We designed Sorenson 360 to be one of the most intuitive and highest-quality OVPs on the market, as well as a powerful, flexible tool for users. This recognition validates those efforts.”
Sorenson 360’s superior video quality is based on Sorenson Media’s history of encoding and transcoding expertise and understanding of online video needs. Working seamlessly with the company’s gold-standard video encoding application, Sorenson Squeeze, and the enterprise-grade Sorenson Squeeze Server, Sorenson 360 enables users to publish video in the widest variety of formats and offers uncapped, unlimited data rates for playback on any computer or mobile device.
“This year’s European Readers’ Choice Winners offer a snapshot of the ‘who’s who’ in the world of online video, as defined not by the press or pundits, but by the people who really matter most: the end users,” said Streaming Media Editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “The streaming media landscape is constantly evolving, and this year’s list demonstrates that while hardware remains central to our industry, cloud services are becoming ever-more important in the overall online video ecosystem.”
Voting for the Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards took place during the summer across 16 categories by the readers of Streaming Media’s European magazine.
