Welcome to BusinessCloud’s MediaTech 50 ranking for 2024.

Audoo tops the annual ranking of UK companies creating original technology to transform production and delivery of media and the arts – from virtual worlds to music, podcasts, radio, video, film and the written word.

Following the creation of an 87-strong shortlist, the final ranking was decided by a combination of selections from an expert judging panel (see below) and a public vote among readers of BusinessCloud.

We also polled the top 50 and gathered views from judges to quantify and reflect technology trends in media and the arts. The 2024 MediaTech Insights report considers the rise of artificial intelligence, the reality of the metaverse, the funding landscape plus accessibility in the industry.
