Critical Mention, Inc. Key Developments

Critical Mention Strikes Licensing Partnership to Efficiently Distribute Al Jazeera Media Network's Channels into Global Business Intelligence Markets

Critical Mention announced a partnership with Al Jazeera Media Network. The agreement extends to both direct subscribers of Critical Mention as well as the users of third-party media monitoring and business intelligence platforms that rely on the Critical Mention API. Terms were not disclosed. Al Jazeera Media Network partnership comes as the global, broad-based multibillion-dollar business intelligence and big data marketplace is grappling with a lack of real-time broadcast content. With content partnerships in place with close to 300 of the most trusted TV and radio news brands across three continents, Critical Mention's API is driving a paradigm shift in the utility of broadcast in business intelligence and big data platforms while pioneering new opportunities for broadcasters, who gain clear visibility into usage across all platforms. Al Jazeera Media Network gains immediate distribution into the business intelligence markets. In addition to Critical Mention's direct client base, the Al Jazeera Media Network's broadcasts will gain immediate distribution to Critical Mention's channel partners in the media monitoring, lead gen, ad intelligence and general research markets that are licensing access through the Critical Mention API and AMQP low-latency feeds to add the TV medium into their platforms. These platforms receive either near-real-time or low-latency enhanced and expanded text feeds through the service with all video remaining on the Critical Mention cloud for viewing.

Nexstar Broadcasting Group Adopts Critical Media's Syndicaster Platform to Speed the Delivery of News Video to Web, Tablet and Mobile Platforms

Critical Mention, Inc. announced that Nexstar Broadcasting Group has adopted the Syndicaster platform to speed the delivery of news video to web, tablet and mobile platforms, and to power new live streams for original content not airing on TV. The Syndicaster technology will enable Nexstar stations to edit, title, tag and publish clips within 60 seconds of airtime or within 60 seconds of the video being uploaded from the field. This dramatically increases the number of news segment available to users of the news outlets' digital properties. Edited clips can also be included in Critical Media's ClipSyndicate platform, facilitating monetization through ad-supported and paid-for video syndication to enterprises and publishers. Under the terms of the agreement, 61 Nexstar television stations in 41 markets, covering over 12% of U.S. TV households, will deploy Syndicaster. Syndicaster enables live video editing of over-the-air content, aggregation of live breaking news captured in the field, and the monetization of this content through the Syndicaster private-labeled video player and ad server for hundreds of affiliates in local markets.
