The Complete Broadcast Solution Connects TV, Mobile and Web to Build Communities and Monetize Audiences

AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, ISRAEL and ZURICH, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - Aug 24, 2015) - RR Media (NASDAQ: RRM), a leading provider of global digital media services to the broadcast and media industries, has announced a partnership with community marketing platform, joiz, to offer next-generation user engagement and loyalty club tools for broadcasters, content owners and rights holders. The joint offering sees all of RR Media's content management, channel playout and smart global distribution network capabilities seamlessly integrated with joiz's innovative and award-winning platform.

The joint solution provides new methods of enhancing user experiences and turning passive viewers into engaged consumers on any screen. Through smart data mining, eCommerce integrations, sponsorships, content partnerships and targeted advertising, the solution creates new, untapped content monetizing opportunities.

Content owners and broadcasters now have a greater opportunity to personalize their offering to audiences with the use of real time user and social media data to create dynamic programming.
