July 15, 2015 — Trender Research, producers of the OTT (over-the-top video) Executive Summit (www.OTTexec.com), announced that SeaChange’s Rave premium OTT-platform was awarded the “Best Product Fit” as voted by a prestigious group of industry executives. The OTT Executive Summit, held last month at the Westin Times Square, brings together thought leaders in the industry to discuss how OTT is changing viewing behavior and pay-TV business models. Attendees include the top minds of the OTT world, including all the major service providers such as Verizon, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, DirecTV, and Comcast, and leading broadcasters and programmers such as ABC, CBS, NBCUniversal, Fox, Hulu, and HBO.
“The Best Product Fit award goes to the OTT product that is judged to be the best and easiest solution to integrate into an existing team, process, or workflow,” said Brian Mahony, CEO of Trender Research and Founder of OTT Executive Summit & Magazine (www.OTTexec.com/magazine). “This is an amazing honor when you consider that all the top leaders in the OTT industry voted on the award.”
SeaChange VP of Strategic Marketing Alan Hoff commented, “We’re thrilled about this latest recognition by industry colleagues who keep a very close, comprehensive view of the opportunities surrounding the emergent OTT sector. Rave’s wins underscore the value of a rapidly deploying SaaS solution that will empower content owners and television providers to stay on pace with consumers.”
Earlier this year, Rave won industry awards including the 2015 TV Connect Award for Best Service Delivery Platform for IP TV... and the Cablefax Tech Award for Cloud Solution. Rave comprises every component required to build an OTT business with the integrity and quality defined by premium subscription television – from multi-device consumer experiences and storefronts to content ingestion.
