Adobe Primetime Wins 2014 SIIA Content CODiE Award

2013 was a busy year for Adobe Prime­time, from bring­ing the full solu­tion to mar­ket to build­ing on cus­tomer and part­ner momen­tum. We’ve hit the ground run­ning in 2014 with some excit­ing news on the hori­zon, and we’re thrilled to announce that Adobe Prime­time was just named a 2014 SIIA Con­tent CODiE Award win­ner in the “Best Video Plat­form for Media & Pub­lish­ers” cat­e­gory.

Dur­ing the past 28 years, the Soft­ware & Infor­ma­tion Indus­try Asso­ci­a­tion (SIIA) CODiE Awards have rec­og­nized more than 1,000 soft­ware and infor­ma­tion com­pa­nies for achiev­ing excel­lence. The CODiE Awards are the only peer-rec­og­nized pro­gram in the con­tent, edu­ca­tion, and soft­ware indus­tries. There were 91 final­ists across 26 cat­e­gories for the SIIA Con­tent CODiE Awards rep­re­sent­ing the infor­ma­tion industry’s best prod­ucts, tech­nolo­gies, and ser­vices cre­ated by or for media, pub­lish­ers, and infor­ma­tion ser­vices providers. SIIA’s rig­or­ous judg­ing, eval­u­a­tion and vot­ing process is explained here.

Adobe Primetime’s CODiE Award win val­i­dates the inno­va­tion, vision and indus­try impact we’re deliv­er­ing as we extend TV beyond the liv­ing room and bring it to every IP-con­nected screen. We’re giv­ing pro­gram­mers and cable oper­a­tors the abil­ity to stream, pro­tect, ana­lyze and mon­e­tize video across desk­tops and devices. It’s an honor to be rec­og­nized by SIIA alongside so many inno­v­a­tive play­ers in the soft­ware indus­try.


We’d also like to con­grat­u­late our fel­low Adobe Mar­ket­ing Cloud win­ners in the fol­low­ing Con­tent CODiE Award cat­e­gories:

Lastly, we’d like to say con­grats to our own Jens Loef­fler, who was named to CableFAX’s Dig­i­tal Hot List, which “rec­og­nizes exec­u­tives shep­herd­ing inno­va­tion and pro­gress in social media, dig­i­tal dis­tri­b­u­tion, app devel­op­ment, web con­tent, tech­nol­ogy strat­egy, TV Everywhere/authentication and other cut­ting-edge mul­ti­plat­form projects.”

Sky TV New Zealand Launches Sky Go on iOS with Adobe Primetime

Sky TV NZ launched its new Sky Go appli­ca­tion for iOS lever­ag­ing Adobe Prime­time Player SDKs and Adobe Prime­time Cloud DRM. The iOS app pro­vides view­ers with instant access to 10 pre­mium live-stream­ing chan­nels and the Android ver­sion is sched­uled to be released later this year.

Sky TV App

Adobe Prime­time DRM recently launched a cloud-based deploy­ment option to com­ple­ment the on-premises solu­tion. All major stu­dios have approved apps and ser­vices that use Adobe’s DECE-approved DRM, which pro­vides an easy-to-deploy, end-to-end DRM solu­tion inte­grated with the Adobe Prime­time Player SDKs. Adobe now offers the abil­ity to run the same DRM-pro­tected video stream on all Adobe Prime­time enabled plat­forms, includ­ing desk­tops (see demo), iOS, Android, Roku, and Xbox — with more to come. The sin­gle pub­lish­ing and mon­e­ti­za­tion work­flow leads to sig­nif­i­cantly lower oper­a­tional costs.

If you are located in New Zealand, please down­load the Sky Go appli­ca­tion directly from the iOS App Store and let us know what you think. For more infor­ma­tion on Adobe Prime­time, visit this blog, fol­low us on Twit­ter, or check out the web­site.
