The 2023 Streaming Media Europe 51
Welcome to the 2023 Streaming Media Europe 51, returning after a brief hiatus in 2021 and 2022. The Streaming Media Europe 51 identifies the most cutting-edge, influential, and dynamic technology companies in the streaming ecosystem. This is our tenth list, and our first to narrow the scope 51 to organisations representing the best of the best, in a break with the sprawling 101 lists of old.
As in 2021, we've focused our attention on companies whose headquarters are based in the UK or continental Europe, even though their reach and influence in most cases extend well beyond national boundaries or local or adjacent markets (and even more so today than in the comparatively confining climate of early 2021). This list complements the 2022 Streaming Media 50, in which we recognised recognition North America's top tech talent last November on our US site, StreamingMedia.com.
You will no doubt see some familiar names here, but the many changes in the list since the Streaming Media Europe 101 reflect the streaming industry's persistent state of evolution and flux, as once-prominent organisations cease operations or are absorbed into other companies through acquisition or consolidation, and new innovators emerge to wrest our attention away from old standbys.
Readers are also likely to note the absence of content companies and services; as in past years, we have chosen highlight the companies that create the underlying technologies that drive those services, and enable content publishers to reach their customers.
So how do we pick the Streaming Media Europe 51? We start with a master list of all the companies we’re aware of in our space, then ask members of our editorial and publishing collective to rank them on a scale of 0 (doesn’t belong on the final list at all) to 5 (no list of important companies would be complete without it). The companies who achieve the top 51 composite scores comprise the list.
With that as prologue, we present the 51 companies defining and disrupting online video today: the Streaming Media Europe 51.
