Digital Rapids Corporation
90 Allstate Parkway
Markham, L3R 6H3

Press release date: November 8, 2012

Markham, Ontario: Digital Rapids announced today that the company's StreamZ Live family of multi-screen streaming encoders has won the 2012 Streaming Media Readers' Choice Award in the "MSO - OTT Solution" category. The award was presented during the Streaming Media West conference and exhibition in Los Angeles.

Now in their sixth year, the Readers' Choice Awards are held annually by Streaming Media magazine to honor the leading online video solutions as judged by end-users, rather than by the magazine staff. More than 58,000 votes were cast in this year's balloting for more than 350 products, services and companies in categories spanning the online video ecosystem.

The award is the seventh Streaming Media Readers' Choice Award won by Digital Rapids. Earlier last month, Digital Rapids was also named to the 2012 Streaming Media 100 as one of the "companies that matter most in online video" by the magazine's own panel of experts.

"Multi-system cable operators (MSOs) and, more broadly, multi-channel video programming distributors (MVPDs) increasingly consider multi-screen video delivery to be intrinsic to their core revenue strategies. Online video and initiatives such as 'TV Everywhere' have evolved from simply being value-adds for subscribers to becoming necessities for operators striving to expand, engage and retain those audiences," said Tony Huang, Senior Product Manager, Broadcast and Live at Digital Rapids. "We're thrilled that the readers of Streaming Media magazine continue to recognize StreamZ Live as the ideal encoding solution for enabling premium service operators to deliver superior live and linear multi-screen video experiences."

The StreamZ Live encoder family is part of Digital Rapids' comprehensive portfolio of media transformation and workflow solutions for revenue-expanding live and on-demand multi-screen video operations. Powering applications from online and mobile video to over-the-top (OTT) services and IPTV, StreamZ Live's rich, extensible output capabilities are ideal for capitalizing on today's lucrative multi-screen content distribution opportunities, allowing content and rights owners to efficiently reach viewers on devices from tablets and mobile phones to game consoles, PCs and 'smart' TVs.

Particularly well-suited for broadcasters, MSOs and MVPDs, the upcoming StreamZ Live Broadcast integrated encoder supports the convergence of their core television operations and multi-screen initiatives. StreamZ Live Broadcast combines the StreamZ Live family's renowned streaming versatility and quality with simultaneous encoding for broadcast, cable, telco and satellite television distribution.
