Telescope and Akamai voting platform

November 7, 2007

Telescope, player in participation media services and Akamai, service provider for accelerating content and applications online, have provided the first multi-channel voting platform for participation media events, part of a growing industry that has become more significant to broadcasters. The two companies have successfully delivered the application, which enables audience members of participation TV shows to send votes and interact via the Web, through their mobile devices, and using landline voice calls.

US network Fox is among the first broadcasters to use the new Telescope-Akamai platform in its 'On the Lot' game show.
