Welcome to the Videonet Connected TV Awards 2015
The Videonet Connected TV Awards embrace everything that is bold, innovative and timely in the television industry, rewarding the efforts of content owners and broadcasters, platform operators, online service providers, network owners, the advertising industry and their technology and solutions providers. Now in their fourth year, the awards are overseen by Videonet, judged by a panel of independent judges and presented in a ceremony at Connected TV Summit (June 24-25 in London).
As always, the categories reflect the market segments where there are particularly high levels of innovation. This year we have introduced a new category to recognize the companies who are advancing the television user experience, whether through an incremental improvement in their user interface, better curation and discovery for content or the advance of immersive big screen television experiences like UHD.
