NEW YORK – May 11, 2021 – STN Video, North America’s largest independent online video platform, has been named a finalist in the Best Video Platform category of the 2021 Digiday Media Awards.
STN’s continued success in bringing publishers the best in digital video content, technology and monetization helped secure the nomination, their first ever for the Digiday Media Awards.
“We are always thrilled to be recognized for our success in helping publishers and content providers grow their audiences and revenue” says STN Video CEO Matthew Watson. “Thanks, as always, to Digiday for this recognition. As a go-to resource for industry news and information, we are honored for the nomination and congrats to the other nominees.”
Part of STN Video’s submission for this nomination included a case study conducted with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. After adopting the STN Video Online Video Platform, the Review Journal experienced a 710% increase in video views, a 536% increase in video revenue and a 44% increase in page views. The study shows how STN Video enables publishers to grow their audience by helping them deliver premium and engaging video, and increase their revenue as well, all at zero cost… in fact STN Video pays them!
This marks the second time this year STN Video’s online video platform, which provides resource-free premium technology, content, and monetization to publishers, has been recognized by Digiday after their nomination in February for Best Video Distribution Platform at the Digiday Video and TV awards.
The Digiday Media Awards recognize leading companies working to modernize digital media. Finalists are judged on their ability to both solve industry-wide challenges and create opportunities for their partners. The category of Best Video Platform is new for the 2021 Digiday Media Awards and winners will be announced June 24th on Digiday.com
