SeaChange International Named to Streaming Media’s Top 50 Companies Leading the Online Video Industry List
The Top 50 List Will Be Published in The October 2018 Issue
ACTON, Mass., Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Video solutions pioneer SeaChange International (NASDAQ: SEAC) has been selected by Streaming Media’s editors as one of the top 50 most influential companies taking the streaming media industry into the future. All companies chosen for the honor will be profiled in the magazine’s October issue.
The issue also features a byline by SeaChange’s Chief Executive Officer, Ed Terino, discussing how open cloud-based video platforms are enabling ‘video everywhere’ and facilitating new opportunities, business models and markets. Additionally, these platforms provide video technology providers with the opportunity to integrate advanced services into any given workflow. As a result, video providers and content creators can offer customers a more personalized and engaging viewing experience.
This year SeaChange embarked on a major portfolio refresh, leveraging a new brand name, cFlow, to describe the multiple elements in its video management solutions suite. SeaChange also launched a new cloud-based PaaS video management and delivery solution, the PanoramiC platform, for both OTT and IPTV. The PanoramiC platform is a real-world expression of SeaChange’s advocacy for open, multi-vendor solutions that will unleash OTT video’s potential. With the new brands and messaging, SeaChange has positioned itself for the future.
“If our industry is to optimize innovation, cost efficiency and growth, while providing the experience that viewers demand, we must evolve to more open systems and APIs that offer rapid deployment and feature portability across a wide swath of systems and viewers. Ultimately this will drive the economies of scale and innovation that a fully IP-enabled future can unleash,” said Ed Terino, Chief Executive Officer, SeaChange.
“The online video marketplace is more crowded than ever, and it’s getting tougher to separate the facts from the fluff, and so we decided to make our annual list even more exclusive—the 50 most important, most innovative, and most interesting companies operating in our space today” said Streaming Media editor and VP Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “It’s a list compiled by the experts—Streaming Media’s editorial staff—and we hope it helps our readers better understand who and what really matters in our industry today.”
