The Smart Video Solutions Company Ranked High on Inc. Magazine’s Media List
NEW YORK – September 12, 2011 – In its September issue, Inc. magazine ranks Synaptic Digital, the world’s premier multichannel digital media creation and distribution platform, #35 on the Top Media Companies as a part of its 30th annual Inc. 500 | 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list takes a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Other companies making the media list include LinkedIn, Pandora, AMC Entertainment, and Demand Media.
“Our recent growth puts us alongside other innovators and further affirms that our video technology and services are strategic and relevant for brands and their agencies in today’s ever shifting media landscape,” said Jim Lonergan, Chairman of the Board, Synaptic Digital.
According to Nick Abramovich, Chief Executive Officer, Synaptic Digital, as new media channels continue to emerge, consumption behaviors have evolved. In turn, this has changed the roles of brands, consumers, and journalists alike. Brands are realizing that their customers want less of a monologue and more of a conversation, and expect to be engaged wherever they are, whether it’s watching TV, surfing the web, interacting on social channels or in a media mix.
“Video is the common denominator. It is the most engaging and flexible format for brands to tell their story and connect with their audiences across any channel,” said Abramovich. “This is true for all of our customers – from the U.S., across Europe, and into Asia.”
Synaptic Digital provides a full spectrum of video solutions, from video production services and satellite media tours to multimedia players, digital news sites and thenewsmarket.com global content exchange. Since introducing its flagship technology, Synaptic Digital has launched nearly 100 MediaCentre deployments for the likes of Google, adidas, Kia Motors, Rotary International, Maersk Line, and a yet to be announced content site to promote the city of London ahead of the 2012 summer Olympics.

Aggregate revenue is $10.5 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,275 percent.
