April 7, 2009

plyjPLYmedia, a pioneer in enriching online video, was named a winner of the Red Herring 100 Europe 2009 Award which distinguishes the top 100 private technology companies based in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). Most successful in increasing multilingual engagement and viewing time for EU countries, PLYmedia’s language and closed captioning solution, subPLY, enables online publishers to target an audience beyond native English speakers. With an “in mute” option to facilitate silent video viewing with closed captions, publishers can further accommodate office space viewing and increase longer viewing time.

Essentially an interactive editorial tool, ProPLY optimizes use of the video screen through various information overlays. European publishers can create or use PLYmedia’s customizable overlay templates that link additional internal content (editorial articles) or other web information of interest to the viewer.

“We are thrilled to be a winner of Red Herring’s top technology companies list. A pioneer in enriching online video, PLYmedia’s overlaying technologies — ProPLY and SubPLY — will empower European online publishers and advertisers to engage a greater audience and create new online revenues via sponsorship and interactive advertising opportunities,” said Ben Enosh, Co-founder of PLYmedia. With R&D projects in Europe, PLYmedia is currently engaged in European research and leading media services.
