FUTURI MEDIA continues its industry-leading pace of expanding its audience engagement platforms at radio and television stations throughout the U.S. and around the world.
More than 525 broadcast and network partners across AMERICA, as well as 10 other countries internationally, are now connecting with listeners and viewers with one or more of FUTURI’s four major platforms: LISTENER DRIVEN RADIO (LDR1), TAKEOVER, TOPICPULSE and MOBILE custom app services.
LDR1 and TAKEOVER, which empower listeners to vote and control live radio programming or get alerts when their favorite songs are about to play, has more than tripled from 104 to 311 stations; TOPICPULSE is up nearly 12-fold from 11 to 130 stations; and MOBILE (introduced in 2013), has grown to 165 custom apps in the mobile marketplace, doubling from 80 in the past 18 months.
Commented FUTURI CEO DANIEL ANSTANDIG: “As proud as we are of our year-to-year increases, the number of actual users is even more astounding than these figures indicate. For example, our popular TOPICPULSE platform, a dashboard which tracks real-time trends in social media, is now installed in over 130 newsrooms, but is actively used by more than 3,500 media professionals across TV, radio and digital platforms.
“We’re particularly energized by the increasing appeal of our patented MOBILE services. Futuri products are enabling stations to interact directly with consumers individually while engaging them with news, information, and entertainment, consistently generating tune-in occasions.
“We are living in the most exciting time in history for broadcast media. Today, radio and TV stations have opportunities to leverage technology in ways that the medium’s original innovators never imagined. As FUTURI has developed expansive partnerships with broadcasters around the world, we’ve also scaled our team, now comprised of more than 40 professionals with backgrounds in broadcast management or software engineering. Our goal is to proactively create social and mobile platforms that drive audience engagement and revenue growth.”
