Blake Whitman, VP of Creative Development and Justin Dickinson, Senior Web Designer, will be showing off a new version of Vimeo that is still in Beta mode. Vimeo was created by filmmakers and video creators who wanted to share their creative work, along with intimate personal moments of their everyday life. As time went on, like-minded people came to the site and built a community of positive, encouraging individuals with a wide range of video interests.
Scott Rosenberg, CEO & Co-Founder, will demo their companion TV app for the iPad that syncs to your TV program and gives you all kinds of content and conversation related to what you're watching. Rosenberg will also present some recently launched social features that let you share an image of what you're seeing (FreezeFrame's) and gives you a visual dashboard of the conversation occurring around a show. Umami was founded in 2010 with a goal of giving consumers a deeper, more engaging experience around their favorite TV shows, while providing TV networks and advertisers with a powerful new platform to brand and customize those experiences.
Mark Ghuneim, CEO & Founder, and Richard Glosser, an Advisor to Wiredset Trendrr, will demo their NYC based company that is a leader in the area of Social TV. Trendrr.tv takes data from the social conversations around television shows on Twitter, Facebook, GetGlue, Miso and others and uses a natural language processing platform to analyze it for volume, velocity, sentiment, gender and location to provide analysis to marketers and researchers at over 50% of the major cable and broadcast networks. In addition, Trendrr provides curation services to provide filtered social streams to media companies for use on-air, online and in-app.
Tal Even, Director of Business Development and Brand Advertising, will demo some examples of video units within games and some newly launched features of their business. Supersonic Ads is a market leading provider of in-social-game brand and direct response advertising solutions. They run video, brand engagement, and direct response campaigns across their network of over 500 leading games, publishers, and social networks.
