We're humbled and honored that Akamai was one of only three companies to earn a perfect '5' rating from every judge in this year's Streaming Media 100. The annual list includes "The One Hundred Companies that Matter Most in Online Video," highlighting those considered to be the "most interesting, important and influential" in the industry, according to the publication.
Judging is conducted by Streaming Media's editorial and publishing team, which ranks an initial list of more than 300 vendors on a scale of one ("doesn't belong on the final list at all") to five ("no list of the most important companies would be complete without it"). The top 100 comprise the Streaming Media 100.
Congratulations to all of the companies on this year's list, including Google and J.W. Player, the other two perfect scorers. We certainly find ourselves in good company.
