Announcing the 2010 European Readers' Choice Awards Finalists

Article Featured Image

The votes are all in, and we'll be announcing the winners of the 2010 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards in two weeks at Streaming Media Europe in London. We had 241 nominees in 12 categories, up from just over 200 nominees last year. More than 3,400 voters cast a total of 12,701 votes, which bests the 2009 totals by a wide margin (2,700 voters and 5,500 votes, if you're counting); this means that the average voter had their say in 3 or 4 categories.

Clearly, this is more than simply vendors and their constituents voting for themselves, and we weeded out any votes that came from bogus email addresses. It's exciting to see the interest that our readers have in a broad range of online video and audio technologies and services, and serves as a testament to the continued growth of our industry.

Below the video of the 2009 awards presentation, you'll find the list of finalists-the top three vote-getters in each category, in alphabetical order. If you want to find out the winners, you'll have to join us in London on 14 October. The awards presentation, sponsored by Interxion, is open to everyone-all you need to do is sign up here for a free pass to the conference expo, which features exhibits from leaders in the industry and how-to seminars on everything from Silverlight and Flash to online video advertising and mobile video.
