Yospace is delighted to have won in the Connected Content Service of the Year category of Mediatel’s prestigious Connected Consumer Awards.

The category recognizes innovations such as new advertising models and formats and was awarded to Yospace for its work with Channel 4 in implementing personalised advertisement replacement on live channels across its TV Everywhere platform, All4.

In recognising the achievement of the project, described as the ‘Holy Grail’ of broadcasting, judge and editor of Mediatel Newsline David Pidgeon said:

“The judges were right to see such good things in Yospace’s submission for its work with Channel 4 – as the company has since gone on to win contracts with Sky, ITV and SpotX.”

“I feel this is the start of something very big. The tech is clever, the team behind it more so. A very worthy winner and certainly one to watch.”

About Yospace

Yospace is the foremost provider of server-side ad insertion (SSAI) technology in the world today. Its solution allows live streams and on demand (VoD) content to be monetized for OTT in a way that is true to the seamless viewer experience of linear television, while opening up benefits of digital advertising such as one-to-one addressability and real-time measurement.

Yospace was the first to publicly demonstrate SSAI in a live stream, with ITV in 2012, and today services major broadcasters and network operators across the globe, including DIRECTV and FOX in the USA; Sky Media, ITV, BT Sport, Channel 4 and STV in the UK; Telia and TV4 in Sweden; Optus, Nine, and Seven West Media in Australia.

In early 2019 Yospace was 100% acquired by RTL Group.
