TV Genius has announced that it has been selected in the 2010 Tech Media Invest Top 100, a list of today’s hottest and most innovative emerging companies in the ever converging tech and media industries.
The Tech Media Invest Top 100 (TMI) is compiled by Europe Unlimited, a European network connecting high tech entrepreneurs to investors and strategic partners through specialised events, in association with The Guardian, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Kemp Little.
“We’re delighted to be selected in the Tech Media Invest 100, which reflects the innovation and strength of our Content Discovery Platform,” said Tom Weiss, CEO, TV Genius. “For television operators, our search and recommendation solutions can help to increase the time viewers spend consuming pay-TV services. Operators are able to differentiate their services from others by providing a more personalised television service, leading to higher customer acquisition and increased advertising revenue opportunities.”
The Tech Media Invest 100 (TMI) aims to showcase high growth companies that are developing innovative ways to serve business and consumers, and have the potential to radically change the shape of the technology and media industry.
The TMI Advisory Board deployed a detailed process to whittle down a pool of eligible, promising companies to get to the top 100 winners. Evaluations were made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy, and ecosystem integration.
“As the nature of TV consumption evolves, more and more consumers are watching programmes from a growing number of sources whenever they want and on an increasing number of devices,” continued Weiss. “Navigating their way through the multitude of content available to them and discovering great programming is therefore more difficult. Enabling viewers to easily search for what they want, and recommending relevant content, helps to increase consumption and therefore lead to greater satisfaction. Being listed in the Tech Media Invest 100 is a wonderful recognition of the effort we are making to solve a very common problem for TV viewers.”
