Actimagine Named a "Red Herring 100 Global" Award Winner

Our company has been chosen as one of the top tech start-ups in the world

(PresseBox) (Paris, ) Actimagine announced today that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring 100 Global Award.

Red Herring 100 winners and finalists from North America, Europe and Asia from the last three years were eligible for this award. The Red Herring editorial team used a very competitive process to whittle down the pool of 1800 eligible promising companies to the 100 winners of this first-time award. Evaluations were made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy, and ecosystem integration.

Actimagine is an innovative company which develops and sells under license Mobiclip™, a patented software video codec, optimized for mobile platforms. Mobiclip is the technology that first made it possible to watch a full-length movie in DVD-like quality on mobile phones. Currently Mobiclip is the only technology to address the main challenges of displaying video on mobile platforms by offering DVD-like playback quality at 25 frames per second, full screen, for all types of video (premium, user generated and advertising) without compromising the lifespan of the battery.

"Today, we are in the midst of a revolution in the deployment and use of mobile video content. Consumer demand is increasing at a rapid pace. For video codec developers like Actimagine the challenge is to develop solutions that help deliver not only the quality users are seeking but also the breadth of viewing experiences they are increasingly looking for", says André Pagnac, Actimagine CEO. "In that regard, Actimagine is very proud to have been selected by Red Herring among 1800 companies as one of the 100 top tech start-ups in the world".

The winning companies were announced and celebrated at the Red Herring Global event in Seattle, WA, on December 3-5.
