ATLANTA (March 15, 2012) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Concurrent as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’s Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”
“This year we had a 30% increase in the number of applications over the past few years. We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from our winners.”
In 2011, Concurrent added eFactor to its portfolio of video solutions. eFactor simplifies the delivery of multi format video to internet connected devices. With eFactor, Concurrent is capitalizing on its rich history as a video solutions leader by adding a flexible offering that simplifies video distribution to a wide variety of consumer devices, many of which have differing video format requirements. eFactor eliminates the need for content producers and service providers to package content in these multiple formats, thereby creating huge efficiencies. eFactor provides ways for companies to protect their content from piracy and create new business models including localized and customized advertising, subscription fees, and more.
“Our eFactor solution is an innovative approach to solving a major hurdle standing in the way of companies and other organizations achieving ubiquity with their video resources,” said Bob Chism, chief technology officer of Concurrent. “Our unique approach to solving an existing challenge reflects the continued technological innovation and excellence for which the State of Georgia is known. eFactor is not only technologically elegant, it is extremely practical, easy to implement and delivers both cost savings and revenue generation benefits.”
