MIPCube is the annual community hub event at the heart of MIPTV, the world’s pre-eminent market and creative forum for multi-screen content. The event showcases companies that are at the forefront of developing solutions and new technologies for the media industry.

The MIPCube Lab competition showcases start-ups that are re-inventing business models, adding services, or enhancing the content value. A judging panel of industry experts from organisations such as BSkyB, Illuminate Ventures and Jaïna Capital deemed Streamhub’s real-time analytics service to be the most potentially revolutionary from a shortlist of ten firms.

StreamHub is unique in that rather than relying solely on traditional audience measures, it analyses all sources across offline, online, social and external factors, providing actionable data in a convenient and user-friendly real-time interface.

Aki Tsuchiya, founder and Managing Director, who created the StreamHub platform to address his own experiences working at MTV in Japan said, “We are delighted to have received a special commendation in a really competitive MIPCube competition this year. There’s a huge gap the broadcast industry needs to close in knowing how to process data, visualise it„ extract value from it and communicate it. We believe that Streamhub is uniquely positioned to help deliver this expertise and competitive advantage to the industry, and this award is testament to the potential of our service.”

Oliver Ezratty Innovation Strategy Consultant and a member of the judging panel for the MIPCube Labs competition said, “Streamhub offers a simple solution for media companies to use real time data to optimise performance across their many departments. We liked the easy integration it offers and we can see the benefits it brings to the customer on a daily basis. We wish them good luck!”
