Yospace and Medialaan have been shortlisted for “The Connies”, one of the most prestigious awards on the calendar for OTT broadcasting. This is the third year running that Yospace’s solution has been shortlisted, having won awards for Dynamic Ad Insertion in 2016 with Channel 4 and 2017 with Sky.
Shortlisted in the “Contribution to User Experience – TV & Video” category, the entry recognises innovation in launching “non-linear startover” for live channels on Medialaan’s “Stievie” app, a service which allows ad breaks to be made shorter for viewers in “startover” mode to allow them to catch up with the live broadcast.
