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.”
