Bitmovin participated in the Startup-Challenge of the Werbeplanung.at SUMMIT’14 in the category of TV related startups. Only 5 companies were selected to present on site at the event in front of a high-class jury, including Michael Götzhaber from the Austrian public broadcaster – the ORF – who sponsored the award -, Michael Altrichter (investor) and Simon Kravagna (biper). Competing against Dreama.tv, ImageIn Media, Layzapp, and Neusehen.at, Bitmovin was chosen as the winner in a unanimous decision.The award includes an invitation to the well-known NAB Show 2015 in Las Vegas, which is the biggest event in the media industry, with more than 93,000 visitors and 1,500 exhibitors, including Bitmovin at the last NAB Show 2014. At this point we want to take the opportunity to thank the organizers as well as the sponsor- the ORF – for this great event and the award.
