IBM's SmartCloud Announced Today -- Sorenson Media Is An Inaugural Partner

Today, IBM -- the global technology giant that quietly has been hitting it out of the park quarter-after-quarter -- launches their long-anticipated "SmartCloud" initiative. SmartCloud is IBM's enterprise-focused, highly secure and agile cloud computing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). IBM kicks things off this morning in New York City with a major enterprise customer and partner event -- and I am pleased to announce that Sorenson Media is an inaugural strategic partner and independent software vendor.

Our enterprise-first Cloud video transcoding solutions -- already trusted by multi-billion dollar companies like Technicolor and Shutterfly -- will now work seamlessly within IBM's SmartCloud environment and will be available to IBM customers worldwide as value-added services.

Sorenson Media Named to Streaming Media's "100 Companies that Matter Most in Online Video"

I am pleased to report that Sorenson Media has just been named to Streaming Media's "100 Companies that Matter Most in Online Video." We are honored to be recognized for our contributions to online video.

Streaming Media called on 10 online video experts to compile this list -- including its editors and respected writers.

This kudo follows fast on the heels of Sorenson Media being nominated for a record five (5) Streaming Media Readers' Choice awards (click here to learn more about that and vote for us). In other words, both respected experts who report -- and video experts who use video solutions in their everyday lives and workflows -- have recognized Sorenson Media for its innovation and unique breadth of video solutions.

We are honored -- and are committed to continuing to earn your trust.
