FUTURI MEDIA has acquired EDMONTON, ALBERTA-based STREAMON, which specializes in serving the radio broadcasting industry with integrated streaming, podcasting and social media technologies. STREAMON’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer ANDREW SNOOK has assumed the new post of VP/Streaming Systems at FUTURI.
STREAMON’s live streaming capabilities include its Streaming Transmitter, which has recently been redesigned in collaboration with FUTURI’s engineering team. The firm’s HTTP live streaming (HLS) continues to play through internet slowdowns and offers consumers one-click tune-in with no app download required. The service includes analytics and SOUNDEXCHANGE reporting tools, as well as ad insertion integration options.
“To bring STREAMON’s innovations into the FUTURI fold is a perfect match,” said FUTURI MEDIA CEO DANIEL ANSTANDIG. “We are like-minded in providing state-of-the-industry tools to broadcasters, and the StreamOn team has the vision to see where the puck is headed in terms of streaming and social. We welcome the leadership of ANDREW SNOOK as our newest VP. It’s a proud day as we add the Maple Leaf alongside our American flag.”
Added SNOOK, “This move combines two very smart and creative teams that are dedicated to bringing broadcasters the resources they need to compete and thrive. In the coming months, clients can expect to see new features to help grow ratings and revenue. We’re thrilled to join forces with everyone in the FUTURI family.”
