Internet video-on-demand company Akimbo Systems garnered praise from global blog network AlwaysOn, named to its OnHollywood 100 Top Private Companies list.
The OnHollywood 100 is a power list of the top private emerging technology companies in digital entertainment and media. Akimbo was handpicked by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on a set of five criteria – innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation. The OnHollywood 100 was selected from more than 1,000 companies, peer-nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts.
Akimbo offers subscribers more than 15,000 TV-quality videos for download on demand over the Internet. With Akimbo, consumers download video on demand and choose where they want to watch it on a PC or on a TV set via the company's RCA-brand set-top box.
“Akimbo is honored to be named once again to the OnHollywood 100,” said Akimbo president and CEO President Thomas F. Frank. “This recognition is truly a testament to all that Akimbo has accomplished, paving the way for delivery of Internet VOD to consumers. We look forward to continued success as the market evolves.”
