Screening by Uptrail Consulting

Om företaget

Have you ever watched a sporting event live on your computer or tablet? Or caught up on the latest videos on your phone? If so, you already know Ooyala.

The Internet has turned every device with a screen into a television with unlimited channels.

People are watching everywhere. They stream from home, from the café, from international flights. With the rise of binge-watching and catch-up TV, they’ve gotten used to watching content on their own schedule. As a result, the technology required to connect with viewers is becoming increasingly complex. That’s where Ooyala comes in.

We help our customers -- some of the largest operators, broadcasters, media companies and brands in the world -- connect viewers with their interests, audiences with relevant advertising, analytic insights to business strategies, and ultimately, video with revenue.

Ooyala captures 3.5 billion analytics events each day. Last year, Ooyala delivered video content to over 220 million unique users around the world. Those viewers played over 10 billion streams comprising almost 30 billion hours of video. And we managed inventory for 30 billion video ad impressions, and delivered over 11 billion ads.
