Streaming Media Europe 101

|

November 15, 2016

NEP Connect (formerly known as SIS LIVE) has made it into Streaming Media Europe’s 101 list! Chosen from more than 250 companies, that are annually ranked on a scale of one to five by staff, contributors, and recognised industry experts affiliated with Streaming Media Europe.

The list is based on which companies are deemed to be the most essential to the advancement of the streaming industry.

NEP Connect Managing director David Meynell said, “We’re delighted that NEP Connect has been recognised in Streaming Media Europe’s 101.  It’s a reflection of our dedication to providing innovative, reliable streaming services, delivered securely and cost-effectively whenever and wherever our customers require.

“NEP Connect has been involved in many high-profile streaming projects and this accolade highlights our streaming capabilities and ability to distribute content to multiple platforms.”

The company recently streamed Lucozade Sport “Made to Move” sessions with Pure Gyms; “Celebrity Haunted Hotel” for W; Red Bull’s “Revolutions in Sound” event at the London Eye (its 31 simultaneous streams was a world record at the time); and supported a live, globally streamed appearance by singer Jessie J for McDonalds’s 2015 ‘Gifts of Joy’ campaign.

All of this, coupled with the recent official launch of NEP Connect’s Anylive fibre network, has further secured the company’s place as an industry leader.
