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.

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.

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.
