London, 22nd August 2016 – Genius Digital, the experts in audience analytics, today announce that IBC (Amsterdam, 8 – 13 September, 2016) will see it demonstrating the full range of how data plays a critical role in the success of broadcasters and operators.

Genius Digital will be on the Verimatrix IBC stand (5.A59) demonstrating the companies’ joint secure QoS data gathering solution.

Discussing the advantages of the holistic approach to data gathering and analysis, Tom Weiss, CEO, Genius Digital said: “We still see large operators using different systems to collect from multiscreen devices and set-top boxes, causing inherent technical and operational challenges. It’s our philosophy that making the most of big data needs a holistic view of the customer – and this is can only be achieved via a single system, rather than a number of disparate, cobbled-together options.”

Genius Digital data solutions and services have increased the bottom-line at customers in a number of ways, including:

  • Increased ad rates
  • Increased effectiveness of upsell marketing initiatives
  • Increased VoD buy-rates
  • Increased effectiveness of anti-churn initiatives
  • Lower operational costs

“Through combining the science of data through our holistic data gathering technology with the instinct and experience of our ‘data artists’ we use big data to make and save money for our customers. For us IBC is all about communicating why the revolutionary effects of big data insight can only be delivered successfully by a holistic approach to data gathering and analysis,” concluded Weiss.

Tom Weiss will take part in a Forum Data Keynote Panel, “Can audience measurement catch up with catch-up?”. 10th September, 13:30 – 14:30, The Forum.
