Vimond's Helge Høibraaten Named to Streaming Media Dream Team 2011

Online media is one of the most fascinating areas of the media industry today

Vimond Media Solutions CEO Helge Høibraaten has been named to Streaming Media Magazine's Dream Team for 2011. Streaming Media's Dream Team is an annual list of industry leaders the magazine recognizes for having made outstanding contributions in the field of online media, and for sharing "a passion for online video that goes beyond their own companies or products."

"This year's Dream Team is a cross-section of both established veterans and up-and-comers in the European online video space," said Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, Streaming Media editor. "They represent not only traditional elements of online video such as content delivery and streaming services, but also the associated creative, social, and monetization pieces without which the industry cannot grow. It's our most diverse Dream Team yet, and I congratulate all of them."

Said 2011 Dream Team member Høibraaten, "Online media is one of the most fascinating areas of the media industry today, and we at Vimond Media Solutions are delighted to be recognized as a significant player in the field. It's exciting to be bringing content to customers in innovative ways, and shaping a new mode of media consumption. This is a welcome accolade for everyone at Vimond and for our customers, who have worked with us very closely to drive forward the development of the Vimond online TV platform."
