The CSI Awards, organized by CSI Magazine (Cable and Satellite International Magazine), celebrate excellence and achievement in the OTT, broadcast, video, and IoT sectors. Today, CSI announced that Zype Apps Creator has made its 2022 CSI Awards shortlist for "Best TV Everywhere or Multi-Screen Video" solution. Two other Backlight business units were also nominated for their solutions - Iconik for "Best Remote Production" and Wildmoka for "Best Use of AI or Machine Learning in Video".
With consumers spending less time viewing cable subscriptions and more time streaming content over connected devices, it has never been more important or more lucrative to have content distributed via your own OTT application to provide audiences with multi-screen video experiences. The 2022 CSI Awards category for "Best TV Everywhere or Multi-Screen Video" solution recognizes those solutions provide any form of video to two or more screens, including TVs, PCs, mobile phones, tablets, gaming consoles and other connected devices inside and outside the home.
