2014 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards Winners

Article Featured Image

This year's Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards was our biggest yet, with numbers of both nominees (352) and voters (more than 3,000) that rival the U.S. awards, showing that while online video is truly a global industry, there is significant interest in and need for regional solutions and vendors. Not surprisingly, the list of winners shows a split between companies that are based in Europe and U.S. companies that have a global reach or have made significant European inroads in recent years.

So without further ado, here are the winners of the 2014 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards, presented on Tuesday, 24 June at the Streaming Forum at the Park Plaza Victoria in London.
