May 2, 2011 5

NetroMedia, global CDN and streaming service provider, was selected as one of the five finalists for VIATeC’s Innovative Excellence Award last week at the Strathcona Clubhouse in downtown Victoria. This award recognizes a company that has researched and expanded a ground-breaking service, process or product that is expected to revolutionize a sector, method of business or way of life.

NetroMedia was one of the first CDNs in the space to introduce multi-platform streaming that can reach iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, iPad, Tablet PC, Set-top Boxes, PCs and Macs with no App installation required client-side. They have developed their own unique streaming media management portal that operates in the cloud and recently released Quadra, a geo-optimized Content Delivery Network, fully scalable and able to handle hundreds of Gbps anywhere on earth.

We are incredibly honoured to be named a finalist for the Innovative Excellence Award,” said Che Pinkerton, President and CEO of NetroMedia. “It is great to be recognized for something we almost take for granted. We are very sensitive to making certain all our products and services are cutting-edge for our clients. Online broadcasters expect no less.

"We look forward to another exciting night of recognition and networking.
