Radio Gets 'Second Screen' in SoundHound-Dial Pact | Media - Advertising Age

Radio Gets 'Second Screen' in SoundHound-Dial Pact | Media - Advertising Age | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Radio-network company Dial Global and music ID app SoundHound have inked an exclusive deal to extend radio ad campaigns and sponsorships onto mobile phones through a platform called SoundHound for Radio.

 

SoundHound, like Shazam, lets people identify a song playing in their immediate vicinity simply by opening the app and holding their phone up.

 

 Soundhound app

This is how SoundHound for Radio works: Radio listeners will hear a call to action either from a radio host or in a radio ad to use their mobile phone to "SoundHound" the broadcast. Listeners don't have to open the app immediately, but can do so over a specified period of time that could be a few hours. Once they do so, they will be greeted with elements such as exclusive content, contest-entry forms or other sponsored promotional opportunities.

Ford And GM Forge Different Wireless Paths - Forbes

Ford And GM Forge Different Wireless Paths - Forbes | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Ford wants to use the smartphone as a wireless hub, while GM is working with AT&T to pipe connectivity directly into its cars.

America’s biggest car makers have realized the cars they make are in fact the ultimate mobile devices – moving at speed, and  pushing faster data speeds too. Both Ford and GM are moving to make their cars smarter with web capability, but they announced different strategies at Mobile World Congress today. While GM announced it was partnering with AT&T to bring wireless connectivity to its cars next year, Ford partnered with an Internet player, music streaming service Spotify, using iPhones as the wireless hubs for its cars.

Ford’s strategy offers more in-car development, sooner. It only has to wait for Spotify to release an update to its iOS app (which it says will be in the first quarter of this year) and drivers who have Ford SYNC in their car will be able to use Spotify in the Car with voice commands.

Pandora Eliminates Unlimited Mobile Streaming

Pandora Eliminates Unlimited Mobile Streaming | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
In an effort to balance growing royalty costs, Pandora announced Wednesday that it will be eliminating unlimited ad-supported music streaming on the service via mobile.

Pandora listeners in the US will now be limited to 40 hours of free ad-supported streaming on their mobile devices each calendar month, after which they’ll have to pay a fee to keep listening $.99 in-app purchase.


Kennedy says that the average user on Pandora only spends 20 hours on the service across all platforms. He says that Wednesday’s announcement is likely to only effect 4% of Pandora’s monthly active listeners.

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

A global partnership with Spotify, announced today at Mobile World Congress, heralds a major push into Europe for Ford SYNC, the voice-activated in-car connectivity system, and Ford SYNC AppLink, which enables customers to control smartphone apps safely from the driver’s seat.

Paul Mascarenas, Ford chief technical officer and vice president, research and innovation said that Ford SYNC will feature in 3.5 million Ford vehicles in Europe by 2015.  Helping the company reach this target will be the all-new European version of the EcoSport. Unveiled at Congress, the Ford EcoSport is one of the first Ford vehicles in Europe to offer Ford SYNC AppLink.

The integration of the music streaming service with Ford SYNC AppLink-equipped vehicles in both Europe and North America marks Spotify’s first direct collaboration with an automotive manufacturer. With 20 million users and five million paying subscribers, Spotify is currently available in 17 European countries, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Pascal de Mul, global head of hardware partnerships, Spotify, said that AppLink will enable drivers to access Spotify songs and playlists using voice commands including: “shuffle”, “repeat”, “star/unstar track”, “choose playlist”, “play music”, “recently played”, and “now playing”.

Ford also announced that it is working with three partners on European-tailored versions of AppLink apps previously launched in the US. Kaliki Audio Newsstand provides audible playback of newspaper and magazine articles; Glympse allows Ford drivers to share their location and estimated time of arrival with friends and family; Aha uses the cloud to safely enable internet-based entertainment and information allowing drivers to search for infotainment such as social media feeds, places to eat or stay and weather.

Facebook: Friend or Foe to Music Marketers?

Facebook: Friend or Foe to Music Marketers? | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Some people haven’t forgiven Facebook for the changes it made last year to its news feed algorithm, alterations that ratcheted down the audience reach for some posts written on behalf of brand.

“You can spend a lot of time building up these audiences, but when things change constantly on the platform, it’s very challenging,” Dorothy Hui, Roc Nation’s Vice President of Digital Marketing, said of Facebook during a social media summit hosted by the Recording Academy prior to the Grammy Awards.

No doubt, Facebook’s tweaks, discussed in detail in the March 2, 2013 issue of Billboard, altered the playing field for bands and marketers who rely on the social network to get the word out. “It’s very risky to build your business on someone else’s platform,” said Paul Verna, senior analyst with eMarketer who advised companies to diversify their social efforts to as not to be dependent on any one platform. “You just never know when those platforms make changes that don’t serve your needs and you’re left dangling.”

There are other ways to adjust, said Geoffrey Colon, vice president of Social@Ogilvy, the digital marketing arm of Ogilvy & Mather. For those who are sticking to Facebook, Colon offers six ways to leverage the world’s largest social network.

5 Aspects Of The Old Music Industry Being Disrupted And Replaced By Social Media - hypebot | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

In a widely noted Billboard interview, Amanda Palmer stated that "Twitter has replaced Google and [music] management." Nobody cared about the Google part but her claim of replacing music management certainly raised a few eyebrows. Of course, like many such claims, it wasn't totally true but it did provide an interesting example of the disruptive power of social media to replace expensive professional roles with cheap, good enough solutions.

Two Days In The Valley « jacoBLOG | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Previously, the discussions centered more on “what’s going to happen.”  This year, it felt more like “this is happening all around us.”

Most of the presentations focused on the real world and the solutions and applications that attendees could take back home and implement.  This is progress – we weren’t talking about elementary issues: whether a station should have an app or who at the station should post on Facebook.  Instead, this felt more like graduate school where the discussions debated the best solutions and approaches.

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

LIVE FROM MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS: The CEOs of Foursquare and Deezer described how they are innovating to drive user engagement in today's keynote at Congress....

 

CEO of music service Deezer, Axel Dauchez, said that innovation is “absolutely critical” but knowing where to focus this innovation is key to driving engagement.

Deezer is aiming to make music a “more intense part of users identity”, according to Dauchez, by providing the means for active music discovery and making the relationship between users and artists more tangible by providing exclusive content.

Integrating the live music experience into the service is also an important element that drives user engagement. “We need to provide a better experience of the gig itself,” Dauchez said.

Although taking down barriers to music discovery is important, Dauchez there is also scope to put in some restrictions to drive user engagement. For example, if a band is making an album, they can make some of music available for a short period of time, which drives a significant rise in user engagement.

Spotify's Daniel Ek wants to turn you on to new music

Spotify's Daniel Ek wants to turn you on to new music | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Ek's done more than just noodle in online music. He's been more successful at advancing the notion of subscribing to a celestial jukebox than anyone before. While music-subscription services Rhapsody, the legal Napster and MOG (soon to relaunch as Daisy) all pre-date Spotify, Ek has 5 million paying customers — (five times Rhapsody's base) — and 20 million active members who use the ad-supported free version. (Spotify charges $5 monthly for ad-free listening on a PC or $10 for mobile access.)

His twist on rivals was emphasizing the social aspects of music — showing what your friends are listening to via Facebook. Others had tried to do that but not as successfully.

Now, he wants to take the social aspect of discovering new music to the next level by showing you what your favorite artists listen to.

Samsung Wants to Be a Media Giant. Meet the Guy in Charge of Getting Them There. | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Apple used media — first music, then lots of other stuff — to help build its giant hardware business. Samsung already has a giant hardware business, and now David Eun is trying to help it with the other stuff.

Eun, who is EVP of Samsung’s Open Innovation Center, gave us a sense of what he’s up to at our D: Dive Into Media conference last week, and you can watch the full interview below. He’s reluctant to talk about specifics, but there’s plenty to chew on. And if Samsung ended up launching, say, its own video portal, or advertising business, or both, you’ll be less surprised after watching this one.

Oh, and what about Apple and its ongoing fight/partnership with Samsung? Of course Kara Swisher asked him about that, too. And he answered!

Check Out the Reach for Streaming Radio

Check Out the Reach for Streaming Radio | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
According to this source, radio's streams (yes, including Pandora et. al.) reach 40% of 18-24's, a third of 25-34's, and one out of every four 35-54's.

 

Interestingly, the results clearly show that while the majority of industry buzz is around streaming video, in all age groups analyzed, TV and Movies (individually and combined) were outstripped by the total reach of streaming Radio / Audio.

While this may seem counterintuitive to some, a possible explanation may be a plus of audio content — it does not require fixed attention or even for the individual to remain in place. Also, Radio and any other kind of streaming can be done on the computer while working on the same device — whether for the purpose of providing background music, sports commentary or other forms of talk-based content.

Message of the UNESCO Director-General (copy 1) | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Message of the UNESCO Director-General (copy 1) | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

World Radio Day celebrates a medium that has transformed the way we communicate and that remains at the forefront of the 21st century. On 18 December, 2012, the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the 2011 resolution adopted by the UNESCO General Conference, proclaiming 13 February as World Radio Day, the day United Nations Radio was established in 1946.

The birth of radio in the 19th century ushered in the era of modern communication. The world has changed dramatically since then, but radio has hardly aged a day. It remains widely accessible, relatively cheap and very simple to use. It is still the medium that can carry any message to any place at any time – even without electricity. In situations of conflict and natural disaster, shortwave radio provides a lifeline of information that can save lives.

Radio has embraced the digital revolution to expand its power and reach. Across the world, the cost of broadcasting is decreasing and the number of radio stations is increasing. Citizen journalists and community media are using online radio stations to give voices to those who are rarely heard. More than ever, radio remains a force for social change, by sharing knowledge and providing a platform for inclusive debate.

In a world changing quickly, UNESCO is committed to harnessing the full power of radio to build bridges of understanding between peoples, to share information as widely as possible and to deepen respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, especially freedom of expression. This is essential for good governance, open societies and sustainable development. 

This is why UNESCO works to protect the safety of radio journalists across the world and to support free, independent and pluralistic media, along with the necessary legal frameworks and democratic institutions.

UNESCO is also determined to make full use of community radio to address poverty and social exclusion at the local level and to empower marginalized rural groups, young people and women. Radio is a key platform for education and for protecting local cultures and languages. It is also a powerful way to amplify the voices of young people around the world on issues that affect their lives. We must bolster their skills and give them opportunities to engage fully with radio.

Radio has transformed our past -- it remains a powerful force for shaping a more peaceful, more sustainable and more inclusive future for all. This is UNESCO’s message for World Radio Day.

Digital Radio Gets Real-Time With Xaxis Trading desk partners with Triton Digital

Digital Radio Gets Real-Time With Xaxis Trading desk partners with Triton Digital | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

While no medium is totally efficient, digital radio advertising can be particularly wasteful. For example, someone in New York may listen to a Los Angeles sports radio station’s online stream to keep up on the Southern California sports scene, but that person isn’t going to care about some local LA car dealership’s upcoming sale or a new bar that the radio host claims is the best spot in SoCal to watch the Lakers play.

That sort of problem is easily solved in the word of display advertising, where contextual targeting has in many cases given way to real-time bidding, or the ability to buy ads on the fly that are targeted to a specific type of user. Now RTB is coming to digital radio courtesy of WPP-owned agency trading desk Xaxis.

Through a partnership with Triton Digital—which provides digital services and applications to radio companies, handling more than 2 billion online and mobile audio impressions per month—Xaxis Radio advertisers will be able to target the New Yorker listening to LA sports radio online with ads for the best Big Apple bar to catch a Lakers game. Triton Digital has access to digital audio inventory from companies like Cox Communications, NPR, and Slacker Radio, though not all publishers are yet on board for RTB advertising.
