Adobe Primetime Receives “Most Significant Impact Award” at TV of Tomorrow Show

This week we’re sur­rounded by some of the bright­est minds in the indus­try at the TV of Tomor­row Show in San Fran­cisco. The Adobe Prime­time team is there in full force dis­cussing the future of dig­i­tal TV and how we’re work­ing with part­ners and cus­tomers to advance the indus­try.

Ear­lier today, our own Tamara Gaffney, who runs the Adobe Dig­i­tal Index team, pre­sented the lat­est trends and insights from our Q1 U.S. Dig­i­tal Video Bench­mark Report, show­ing that online TV con­sump­tion is up 246% YoY (see sep­a­rate post). Our VP of Video Solu­tions, Jeremy Helfand, then spoke on a panel with other indus­try exec­u­tives from BSkyB, CTAM, Disney/ABC Tele­vi­sion Group, NBC Uni­ver­sal, Nielsen and nScreen­Media about the cur­rent state and future of TV Every­where. Kelash Kumar, group pro­duct man­ager for Adobe Prime­time, will end the day speak­ing on a panel with other indus­try lumi­nar­ies about how “server-to-screen” strate­gies can pre­pare con­tent own­ers for the future of video dis­tri­b­u­tion. It’s reward­ing see­ing so much momen­tum in the indus­try and con­nect­ing with so many of our cus­tomers and part­ners.

Adobe Primetime Wins 2013 Digiday Video Award

It’s been quite a week for the Adobe Prime­time team – from receiv­ing a 2014 SIIA Con­tent CODiE Award in the “Best Video Plat­form for Media & Pub­lish­ers” cat­e­gory to announc­ing that NBC Sports is using Adobe Prime­time to power the 2014 Olympic Win­ter Games in the U.S. across desk­tops and mobile devices, includ­ing iOS, Android, Mac OS, Win­dows, and oth­ers.

Adobe Featured on the Streaming Media 100

I’m pleased to share that Adobe is once again fea­tured on the “Stream­ing Media 100 (SM100): The One Hun­dred Com­pa­nies that Mat­ter Most in Online Video in 2013.” Now in its third year, we’re thrilled to be rec­og­nized on the SM100 alongside so many respected indus­try play­ers as “doing the most inter­est­ing and inno­v­a­tive work in stream­ing video.” With Adobe Prime­time, we’re help­ing MSOs and pro­gram­mers reach view­ers on any IP-con­nected screen, cre­at­ing more value for pay-TV ser­vice and strength­en­ing brand affin­ity for con­tent own­ers. The Stream­ing Media judges noted that the SM100 rec­og­nizes com­pa­nies with “online video in their DNA” and that def­i­nitely holds true for Adobe given our indus­try-lead­ing video solu­tions – from our video cre­ation tools within Adobe Cre­ative Cloud to Adobe Prime­time. Thanks to Stream­ing Media for rec­og­niz­ing Adobe for the third year in a row with a spot on the SM100.

SM100-2013If you’re attend­ing Stream­ing Media West next month in Hunt­ing­ton Beach, Cal­i­for­nia, stop by my panel on Tues­day, Nov. 19: “The State of Over-The-Top Video and TV Every­where Roll­outs.” I’ll be speak­ing on the panel with DirecTV, LG Elec­tron­ics, and Sling Media about the state of over-the-top (OTT) and TV Every­where roll­outs. It should be an inter­est­ing and engag­ing dis­cus­sion so I hope to see you there!

Adobe Primetime Wins “Best of NAB” Award

SMbestofNAB_125x125

We’ve been busy at NAB this week speak­ing with part­ners and cus­tomers about the future of tele­vi­sion and the gen­eral avail­abil­ity of Adobe Prime­time – our TV pub­lish­ing and mon­e­ti­za­tion plat­form for pro­gram­mers and pay-TV ser­vice providers. Fresh off our announce­ment, we’re excited that Adobe Prime­time has been pre­sented with a “Best of NAB” award by Stream­ing Media. The award rec­og­nizes inno­v­a­tive online video tech­nolo­gies shown and demon­strated at the con­fer­ence. Judges from the Stream­ing Media staff selected the five most inno­v­a­tive and best equipped tech­nolo­gies (no speci­fic cat­e­gories) that solve major indus­try chal­lenges. We’re thrilled to be hon­ored alongside four other com­pa­nies  – Canon, Envivio, Matrox and vMix.

We believe 2013 will trans­form how con­sumers view and engage with TV con­tent online and across devices, and how pro­gram­mers and pay-TV providers respond to that shift. This award val­i­dates our work and the belief that the next big indus­try trans­for­ma­tion since the intro­duc­tion of cable tele­vi­sion 30 years ago is upon us. We’re con­vinced that Adobe Prime­time will play a major role in turn­ing every screen into a TV.

Adobe Pass Earns Primetime Emmy Engineering Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Adobe Pass, Adobe’s TV Every­where solu­tion, will be hon­ored by The Acad­emy of Tele­vi­sion Arts & Sci­ences and pre­sented with an Emmy Engi­neer­ing Plaque, a recog­ni­tion for out­stand­ing engi­neer­ing achieve­ments for emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies, at the 64th Prime­time Emmy Engi­neer­ing Awards on Octo­ber 24th. The Acad­emy is rec­og­niz­ing Adobe for its con­tri­bu­tion to drive TV Every­where adop­tion across the indus­try.

Adobe Pass, a key com­po­nent of Adobe’s Project Prime­time, has become the indus­try leader in TV Every­where tech­nol­ogy in less than two years and is now sup­ported by more than 150 US oper­a­tors as they deliver hun­dreds of mil­lions of authen­ti­cated streams for major live events such as The Olympic Games, March Mad­ness, Euro Soc­cer Cup, NBA Play­offs and live news cov­er­age via mobile apps from pro­gram­mers like CNN. Lead­ing media com­pa­nies includ­ing Via­com, NBCU, Fox, Dis­ney, ESPN, Car­toon Net­work and Scripps Net­works depend on Adobe Pass for viewer authen­ti­ca­tion across more than 40 live sites and apps across desk­tops and mobile devices today.

Approx­i­mately 98 per­cent of pay TV house­holds in the U.S. are now able to view TV con­tent via the Adobe Pass authen­ti­ca­tion ser­vice and con­sumers are push­ing TV Every­where adop­tion to an all-time high. Given the track we are on, we expect every major TV show to be avail­able via a TV Every­where app within the next two years. Thanks to all our part­ners who helped make Adobe Pass a great suc­cess and a key dri­ver for the trans­for­ma­tion of the TV indus­try as we know it today!
