Digitalsmiths has experienced record quarter over quarter and year over year growth in both revenue and customer acquisition, including leading North American, tier one Pay-TV providers.

Digitalsmiths also introduced Sports Discovery, the industry’s first product that allows consumers to easily find their favorite teams and sporting events.
“As the number of companies in our space has grown, we’ve narrowed the purview of the Streaming Media 100 to focus exclusively on what we call ‘the enablers’,” said Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “The companies in the Streaming Media 100 are the technology leaders and innovators that make it possible for video publishers in all verticals—entertainment, education, enterprise, and government—to get their content to their viewers efficiently and effectively, and to maximize ROI to boot.”
