Grabyo was delighted to be named Technology Provider Of The Year 2017 at the prestigious British Media Awards held in London.
The event celebrates excellence across all arms of media business – from commercial to editorial, print and digital properties. It was the second year in a row Grabyo was nominated for the awards after missing out on the title in 2016.
This award success comes just days after Grabyo was a runner-up at the BT Sport Industry Awards.
Gareth Capon, chief executive officer at Grabyo collected the award and believes the success is down to the great work of both the Grabyo team and its partners.
"This award is a testament to the growth of digital and social video over the past 12 months and a celebration of our fantastic partners and the great work they do. With live video streaming emerging on Periscope, YouTube, Facebook and now Instagram, Grabyo is seeing huge audiences for social and digital video for live streams, VOD and mobile.”
In 2016 Grabyo delivered 15.1bn video impressions and generated 2.1bn views from video shared through the Grabyo platform. Grabyo was also named a top 50 scale up for 2016 by Tech City UK, delivering YoY revenue growth of more than 150%.
Nearly half of the world’s adult population now owns a smartphone; by 2020, it will be 80% and more than 75% of all internet traffic will be mobile video. As a result, popular mobile apps such as Facebook are now hugely important as destinations for video discovery, consumption and sharing. With the media industry facing intense competition for attention, Grabyo helps partners deliver more content across more platforms in less time than ever before.
Grabyo’s partners recognize that fans now expect much more from broadcasters and rights holders, they want the insight, stories and the updates that matter. Through Grabyo customers are able to expand their video output across each platform, as well as increase the speed of production and content optimization to stay relevant.
