According to Gert Jan Kole, Senior Project Manager for Sky Radio’s Interactive Media Division, “one of the reasons Sky Radio Group partnered with StreamTheWorld is to take advantage of its metadata tools that allow perfect syncing between audio stream and player activity in order to offer advertisers new interactive features and increase ad revenues.” Kole adds, “the migration towards the streaming platform was a flawless switchover, and listeners are very happy.”
Using StreamTheWorld’s tools, Sky Radio was able to launch an online player compatible with social networking platforms featuring ad banners synced in real time with audio spots. The aim of this new player is to boost the effectiveness and profitability of advertising efforts.
“We are proud to put our managed software business model to work for clients like Sky Radio. Our goal is to give broadcasters with bandwidth providers the chance to enjoy StreamTheWorld’s value-added services in order to enhance user experiences, increase brand stickiness, and boost monetization” notes Eric Whitlock, EMEA President of StreamTheWorld.
