Mydeo m3 nominated ‘Best Streaming Host’ at prestigious ISPA awards 2009
London, Tuesday 19 May 2009: Mydeo, the award winning UK video hosting service, has been shortlisted for ‘Best Streaming Host’ at the ISPA Awards 2009. Mydeo was selected from a wide range of streaming services and is now a finalist competing for one of the industry’s most coveted awards.
It’s the fourth year in a row Mydeo has been named a finalist for the ‘Best Streaming Host’ award which is presented to the company that provided its customers with the best possible service during 2008. The award will be judged on strict criteria including network performance, value for money, value added service and customer care.
Cary Marsh, Mydeo’s CEO and Co-Founder, comments: “We’re delighted to be nominated for this award again in 2009. We launched Mydeo Media Manager (m3) less than a year ago and the response has been fantastic. Mydeo m3 provides businesses with the high performance and scalability of the Limelight CDN, but on more flexible commercial terms including: no minimum contracts, flexible monthly payment plans and free premium online reporting.”
The ISPA Awards are the only Internet awards designed to reward excellence in the Internet industry, and attract the UK’s top Internet companies, industry figures and parliamentarians.
Competition for finalists’ places was particularly fierce this year with a record amount of entries from companies across the Internet sector. The announcement of the finalists follows three months of rigorous testing of entrants by ISPA’s technical testing partners, Epitiro.
The winners will be crowned on 9th July at a glittering awards ceremony hosted at the Grosvenor Marriott Hotel.
Launched in 2005 by Cary Marsh and Iain Millar, Mydeo won a Research & Development Grant for Technical Innovation from the UK Department of Trade and Industry. Mydeo provides quality global streaming video hosting for home and business users. The site provides simple online tools that help users instantly upload and publish content to a world-class CDN. Microsoft’s first and only European Windows Movie Maker hosting partner, the service now has close to 250,000 users spanning over 180 countries.
Mydeo uses the Limelight Networks for global storage and delivery together with secure streaming to guarantee security for Mydeo users’ content. This means that consumers and small businesses can enjoy the quality and reliability of a world-leading streaming network, something they would never have been able to purchase directly.

About the ISPAs
The ISPAs – the UK Internet industry awards – are unique as they are awarded to people and organisations in the industry by their peers and reflect the broad nature of the service provider sector.
The Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA UK) has been organising the UK Internet Industry Awards since 1999 to herald the best of the Internet industry and to celebrate innovation and best practice. In 2002 the awards were dubbed The ISPAs.
Each year the event changes to reflect changes in the sector and to represent the ever broadening nature of the service provider sector.
The awards categories now fall into one of two divisions – the ISP and Special Awards.
Attended by senior decision makers, Government representatives and the media, The ISPAs are the premiere event for the industry.
