SANTA MONICA, CALIF. (October 9, 2012) – Adconion Media Group, one of the largest global multi-screen, multi-channel audience platforms, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnHollywood 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnHollywood 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched Hollywood entertainment. Adconion Media Group was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Adconion Media Group and the OnHollywood 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s sixth annual OnHollywood on October 29 and 30, 2012 at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, Calif.
This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant trends affecting digital entertainment. Disruptive technology is forcing big changes in Hollywood: new contracts, new genres and new stars. As the behemoth industry steps into the digital era, entertainment executives will be paying even closer attention to the global Silicon Valley — especially the startups that are writing the rules and creating the tools for the digital entertainment age.
Adconion Media Group is building technology solutions that reflect the fact that audiences continue to splinter across a myriad of new devices and applications as content consumption shifts to a multi-screen and multi-channel world. Its proprietary Digital Distribution Platform enables content owners, app developers and device manufacturers to monetize their global audiences across multiple devices and screens, thereby reaching into the lives of nearly one billion consumers.
“This year’s OnHollywood 100 represents an explosive drive toward device-independent consumer-focused entertainment. The digital entertainment pioneers of the 1990s have paved the way for a sophisticated group of entertainment producers, who are harnessing the power of social, mobile and the Internet to give consumers exactly what they want, when they want it,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “Now, the entire entertainment world has broken free of the establishment and is bringing quality television, film and music to a global audience that’s on the move and hungry for the next innovation.”
The OnHollywood 100 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and entertainment industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
“The market is becoming increasingly fragmented as user’s access specific content whenever and wherever they want it. This shift can’t be ignored and needs to be addressed by using technology solutions that reach the consumer on all their devices,” said Tyler Moebius, CEO of Adconion Media Group. “Being selected by AlwaysOn for their OnHollywood 100 award is a prestigious honor and we’re pleased to be recognized for our efforts and achievements in providing distribution at scale across multiple devices for the benefit of the studios, advertisers and consumers.”
