10 Most Innovative Companies in Video for 2018. Fast

across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. “This year’s MIC list is
an inspiring and insightful window into how many companies have embraced
innovation and are working to make meaningful change,” said Fast
Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with
senior editor Amy Farley.
“We are honored to be recognized by Fast Company,” saidAndrew
Feinberg, CEO, Brightcove.“This is a remarkable list of
innovators with whom to be included and it is a testament to our
heritage of market-leading product development in the video space. Live
streaming is a tremendous opportunity for all publishers, but consumer
expectations of the experience are high. We created Brightcove Live to
simplify live streaming for our customers, while also delivering a
television-like experience that today’s consumer expects.”
