Maybe it was something in the water. Maybe Streaming Media West's move from San Jose to Los Angeles had people more excited than usual about the event. Or maybe, just maybe, it's because 2010 saw more attention placed on online video than ever before.

But whatever the reason, the numbers in this year's Streaming Media Readers' Choice Awards blew away all previous editions. More than 7,000 voters cast more than 58,000 votes, which means each one cast their vote in an average of 8 of our 22 categories. By comparison, last year's awards drew just over 2,000 voters and a just over 5,000 votes.

We announced the winners last nightat a reception during Streaming Media West, sponsored by InternapDigital RapidsViewCastWowzaAEG Digital Media,  and Sonic Foundry Mediasite.

Click here for video of the awards presentation. We also have interviews with our diamond and platinum sponsors: Internap, Digital Rapids, ViewCast, and Wowza.

Thanks to everyone who nominated and voted-after all, these are your awards.
