    • Video player technology is a big part of our company DNA. Prior to becoming Spark Digital, the founding technology team were part of Panvidea, a video clipping and transcoding platform, which was acquired in 2011 and its founders led large-scale custom OVP implementations for Maven Networks, acquired in 2008 by Yahoo!. We believe that video players are more than just tools to deliver content and advertising, they’re also an important part of the user experience. As veterans of this space, we bring deep knowledge of the vendor ecosystem, player and video CMS implementations and open source options. Over the years we’ve done adtech integrations, built mobile player SDKs and designed customer players.
