Mux Named 2021 SaaS Awards Winner

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Mux, the leading video platform for developers, today announced that the company was recognized as a winner of the 2021 SaaS Awards in the category Best SaaS Product for Media and Publishing.

As the media and publishing industry transforms its approach to engaging audiences, developers need to focus their time on building core product experiences, not on becoming video experts. Through a simple API, Mux Video automates the challenging technical work of encoding, hosting, and delivery, allowing any sized development team to build high quality live and on-demand video experiences across a wide variety of devices and connections. With Mux Data’s industry-leading Quality of Experience metrics, developers can analyze and optimize the viewing experience in real-time and drive decisions about their video workflows. Businesses can also analyze engagement metrics to understand whether their videos are seeing success and gaining traction.

"We are thrilled to be honored as a 2021 SaaS Awards winner," said Jon Dahl, CEO and co-founder of Mux. "Our mission is to democratize video so any developer can build world-class video experiences for their audiences without worrying about the underlying technology or building out a team of video experts. With Mux, everyone from a small startup to an enterprise broadcasting company can engage their viewers in meaningful ways."

"So far, 2021 has been a year of transformative growth for successful organizations, with disruptive change across most areas of business," said James Williams, Head of Operations at the SaaS Awards. "We’ve seen a huge growth in awards categories such as Communication, Collaboration and Conferencing–an industry that has seen particularly striking growth as people change their working habits."
