Tunity Joins DPAA to Expand Awareness of Technology
Partnership Will Revolutionize OOH Viewing Through Access to Audio Streaming of Muted TVs and Billboards
NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2018– DPAA, the leading global organization for everything digital out-of-home (DOOH), announced today that Tunity has joined the association.
Tunity enables users to scan a muted live TV and get synchronized audio streamed directly to their mobile device in real-time. The technology is targeted to gyms, bar/restaurants, hospitals, waiting areas and universities, and for the hearing impaired.
Yaniv Davidson, Founder and CEO of Tunity, said, “Our goal is to revolutionize the out-of-home viewing experience for consumers, and to provide a means of measuring viewership of any OOH screen with unprecedented accuracy. Currently, our focus lies in live television but we are exploring the possibility of applying our first-of-its-kind technology to digital out-of-home screens and billboards in Times Square and other locales and venues. Our membership in DPAA will enable us to better evaluate and accelerate these opportunities.”
Barry Frey, DPAA President & CEO, said, “Tunity has developed a technology that addresses a genuine need in the marketplace and opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for brands. We look forward to helping them grow their business by providing networking opportunities and a wide range of intel.”
