Wayin Broadcast to Premier at NAB Conference

Company Reveals New Technologies for Broadcasters with Sights on Re-inventing Social TV

LAS VEGAS, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NAB Show -- Wayin, a company that is changing the way that social content and media is delivered, measured and experienced, today announced the launch of Wayin Broadcast. Developed on the heels of acquiring Comenta.TV, South America's premier social TV integration company, Wayin Broadcast was designed to help TV producers, networks, broadcasters and marketers seamlessly leverage social content to generate improved experiences for audiences and advertisers. 

Wayin, one of few Twitter Certified Partners with premium access to Twitter's entire database, makes it easy for broadcasters to aggregate, curate and contextualize social media content within their preferred production workflow requirements. The Wayin Broadcast toolset enables users to instantly surface social content based on Twitter conversations and their relevance to specific TV programming. Wayin also maps and filters this content with a deep understanding of the audience's influence, location, and related organic trends.

TV producers and marketers can now better utilize real-time data for advanced audience engagement; on-air, online and in-app. Through a number of live visualizations and direct engagement tools, the Wayin platform helps producers and programmers capture and enhance the moments within and surrounding a show – both on-air and via second screen experiences.

"As former TV producers and marketers ourselves, our broadcast team spent almost a year speaking with TV producers and executives about their pain points, goals, and dream scenarios. We then developed an easy to use and unique suite of tools that provide incredibly powerful insights that can be acted upon instantly. We simplified social TV while also adding new functionality," said Tim Glomb, VP of media and entertainment at Wayin.

Wayin will premiere its innovative broadcast solution at this year's NAB event in Las Vegas. Attendees are invited to experience simultaneous social feeds displayed across a number of broadcast graphics systems through Apantac "Universal" Multi-viewers, all in real-time.

The Wayin Broadcast platform ensures that a broadcast station or network can identify and display various forms of Twitter data on air for its immediate production needs. These visualizations include tweets to screen, hashtag polls, mention counters, heat maps, live graphs, and more.

  • Come see Wayin in the Sprockit Hub, Booth C2455 from 12:30-1:30 on April 7th.
  • Join NAB's biggest Social TV Happy Hour from 3-6p April 7th- April 9th at the Wayin booth #SL15508 (Tweet #NABeer).

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops.

How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
