Marketron and Jelli Partner to Enable the First Integrated Supply Side Platform For Radio

Product Collaboration to Create Programmatic Revenue Opportunities for Radio Broadcasters

HAILEY, Idaho and SAN MATEO, Calif., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketron, the leading provider of business software solutions for the media industry, and Jelli, the first programmatic advertising platform for the $40 billion global radio market, announced today the planned integration of the Jelli RadioSpot™ Ad Server with Marketron's Mediascape™ open platform. The strategic partnership will allow stations to manage the sale of inventory directly to programmatic buyers from within the Marketron solution's interface.  As part of the agreement, Marketron will license Jelli's RadioSpot Supply API to enable Marketron's Mediascape open platform to programmatically price, package and sell inventory through RadioSpot.

The integration marks the first time a programmatic platform for broadcast radio advertising has been directly connected via APIs to a leading radio traffic system, accessible through a web-based open platform. By pairing the real-time ad serving and reporting capabilities of the RadioSpot Ad Server with the Mediascape platform, Jelli and Marketron are creating a cutting-edge supply-side platform that will ultimately increase revenue opportunities for radio stations by making it easier for advertisers to buy and run ads.

"Marketron has a long history of first moves in media software and we are very proud to offer this first to our customers," said Jeff Haley, President and CEO, Marketron. "Making radio ads easier to buy is an important milestone for the industry, and we are very pleased to partner with Jelli and make that happen for our customers."

Jelli's patented RadioSpot technology significantly increases efficiency, accountability and transparency for broadcast radio advertising, instantly serving broadcast ads on radio stations across the country and enabling the stations to sell to buyers that use programmatic buying technology.  The integration with the Mediascape platform will allow local stations to seamlessly package, price and control the sale of their inventory to these buyers from within their existing traffic software. The Mediascape open platform is unique in the industry, in that it provides the only open architecture approach for media. 

"Jelli's RadioSpot™ transforms the network radio market giving broadcasters the tools to better compete in today's ad marketplace," said Mike Dougherty, Jelli co-founder and chief executive officer. "With marketers moving so quickly to programmatic buying, the opportunity to partner with Marketron ensures that radio will be included in the planning mix for this new generation of ad buyers."

Jelli is the newest partner on the Mediascape platform, and the strategic partnership is evidence of the rapid growth of the open-architecture approach that Marketron is offering.  The new service from Marketron and Jelli will be available in Fall 2014.

"Mediascape's recent and rapid adoption amongst solution partners is a testament to the potential for an interconnected industry," said Tony Gaughan, CTO and SVP Products, Marketron.  "We are excited to announce this innovative new partnership between two cutting-edge cloud-based systems, and look forward to the streamlined business processes that our customers will experience."

Marketron is offering the Jelli RadioSpot™ integration as part of the growing Mediascape open platform program. To learn more about Mediascape solutions and the Mediascape platform partnerships, please visit Marketron at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas, NV, April 7-10, or email [email protected].

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
