Amsterdam, 19 October 2009 - Nedstat has won the Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Award 2009 in the category ‘Reporting and Analytics’. This was announced during the award ceremony of the 2009 Streaming Media Europe event in London. The award is a tribute to Nedstat’s streaming media product Stream Sense™, the most accurate and comprehensive online video analytics application in the market.

The Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards recognises the industry’s favourite products and service providers. More than 5,500 votes were cast in the only awards in the online video and audio space that are decided by the people who actually use the technology and products.

“We are particularly proud of this award because the choice for us was made by the professional community”, says Michael Kinsbergen, CEO at Nedstat. “Their appreciation for the advanced features and capabilities of Stream Sense™ is a big compliment to our team that continues to keep our product at the forefront of streaming developments.”

This is the second award Nedstat received this year in context with its Stream Sense™ solution. In May 2009 Nedstat, together with the SKO and Intomart GfK, obtained the Hans du Chatinier Award for their research on online television viewing behaviour which had enabled an insight into program popularity and online behaviour of the Dutch audience.

About Stream Sense™

Stream Sense™ has been developed together with leading publishers of online streaming content. Powerful, real-time analytics report on visitor behaviour during video or audio streams whether on demand, progressive download or live and regardless of where the streams are hosted. Detailed insight is provided about how visitors interact with online video advertisements. For instance, users can determine the ideal length of an advertising message and the most profitable place for a message within a programme.

Stream Sense™ supports Windows Media Player, Silverlight, RealPlayer, Flash players, several custom players like the JW player and, via an open standards API, any other player. Embedded players for off-site solutions such as widgets and gadgets make it possible to measure streams that are embedded and hosted on third party sites. This allows both off-site and on-site content consumption data to be combined in one overview. The measurements are browser based and no installation of plug-ins or dedicated players is needed.
Stream Sense™ seamlessly integrates with Sitestat web analytics, allowing for reporting before and after the stream interaction.
