San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Magellan Holdings, LLC, a leading provider of mobile OTT media delivery solutions, and Crowded Reality Inc, the worlds first crowd-funding platform for reality tv and talk shows, today announced a strategic partnership to stream new talk show Wake Up! “backstage” video content to mobile app users.

OTT delivery of content is now mainstream and quickly becoming the preferred delivery method, especially with recent net neutrality legislation in the U.S. and other countries around the world. OTT media delivery to custom mobiles apps is the new trend in media delivery by creating a unique “station / channel” for content owners. The Magellan OTT platform includes advertising, subscription, and pay-per-view capacities to enable immediate monetization of media content.

The first show to be fully funded, sponsored and distributed off the Crowded Reality platform, the show is hosted by the most beloved experts in Mind, Body, Spirit. Wake Up! is the show for the New Mainstream, providing insight into the answers people really want.

The brainchild of award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, a pioneer in the #SocialTV space, and Lisa Marie, a globally successful entrepreneur with a knack for cracking open new markets, the new multi-platform show app creates deep engagement with the audience though its Backstage Pass application, with more content, interviews, information and community. All the shows on the Crowded Reality platform have a #SocialTV component.

Wake Up! is about creating an atmosphere where the people who are “wondering about” can meet the people who “know about”, inspiring all to start “being about” this new way of making the world a better place, adding their social currency to the power mainstream TV.

“We are creating weekly segments that will highlight topics driven by our social media outreach, answering questions, providing information in a easy going, conversational mobile app format. Magellan’s OTT platform gives the viewing audience with a wealth of new exclusive media content and ability to stream previously aired weekly segments, and engage as a community, among a host of other features,” said Adryenn Ashley, CEO of 21st Century Pictures Group.

“Crowded Reality fully understands the future of media delivery over OTT and the importance to have a custom mobile app for content owners to maximize brand and financial upside. Due to our platform approach, each successful TV series on the platform can be quickly and at low cost configured to custom native mobile apps for a true ‘station / channel’ user experience,” said Greg McGregor CEO of Magellan.

About Magellan Holdings, LLC

Magellan ( is a San Francisco based software development company with significant experience in developing software to meet the most challenging applications. From a mobile industry perspective, Magellan’s experience developing software applications for mobile network operator (MNO) infrastructure has span from 1G-AMPS, 2G-GSM-CDMA-TDMA, 3G-UMTS, and 4G-LTE.

About Crowded Reality Inc., the niche crowdfunding platform, created by award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, offers show creators three ways to fund their show, through a system designed to reveal the reach of new shows, and to incite competition for the opportunity to sponsor or air each show. With algorithmic triggers that alert pre-screened and “vetted” sponsors, the site interacts with and introduces show-specific sponsors even before the funding cycle is complete.

Using a factor called Social Currency, tied to proprietary back end tools, can calculate the reach and value to a sponsor and the demographic most interested in a show. This feature encourages sponsors to take action and secure their position with the show to leverage the social currency the show has built and gives potential sponsors the certainty they are looking for when choosing where to invest their marketing dollars, while leaving creative control in the hands of the show creators. Crowded Reality lets independent producers prove the viability of their reality TV and talk show concepts by crowd-funding the pilot, and using social currency, unlock access to sponsors and nationwide distribution.

In less than 100 days Crowded Reality has proven the concept, by fully funding one pilot, gaining $ 100K in sponsorship for talk show Wake Up!, and signing 2 shows into nationwide distribution. With over 11K+ visitors and garnering over 2.5M in social currency, Crowded Reality fulfills a gap in the marketplace between the command and control studio system and the new media makers who long for broadcast access.

Recognizing the benefit of data analysis for the digital humanities field, Gale, part of Cengage Learning, will make available content from its Gale Digital Collections to academic researchers for data mining and textual analysis purposes. Data mining and textual analysis – the process by which text or datasets are crawled by software that recognizes entities, relationships and action – helps researchers draw new conclusions among disparate data and is emerging as an important area of scholarly research.

“Gale is taking an important, industry-leading step by making content available for researchers in this way,” said Frank Menchaca, senior vice president for global product management at Gale. “Data mining coupled with our new curriculum alignment service, in which Gale maps an institution’s library resources to specific areas of faculty research and course focus, is helping our academic customers realize even more value for their investment with Gale.”

Gale will deliver content upon customer request and in a cost-effective manner for the use of data mining and textual analysis. Content from most Gale Digital Collections, including essential research databases like Eighteenth Century Collections Online and Nineteenth Century Collections Online, as well as content from Gale’s extensive newspaper archives and other collections will be made available. In addition to content, Gale is offering new textual analysis tools within the digital archives to assist researchers who may not have programming experience or digital humanities programs at their institution. “Term cluster” and “term frequency” tools will sort through the text and index terms from the content, generating visual displays of information to help researchers easily identify relationships between words and phrases.

For more information on the program, please register for Gale’s webcast “Data Mining and Text Analytics: Gale at the Forefront of Providing Content Set,” scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 19th at 3pm EST.

New York,NY / Paris, France (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

Increased customer demands push organizations to constantly adapt and innovate to be competitive. To survive, these organizations set aside traditional approaches to systems and technology, looking for innovative ways to design and build applications that digitize information and processes and adapt as necessary. They are becoming software-defined enterprises.

One area where this approach is challenging the traditional way of doing things is in the content management world. The way content is created is changing dramatically thanks to the Web. No longer is it stored in static files inside traditional enterprise content management platforms. It is living, active content created in structured formats using Web and mobile applications.

This new approach to content requires tools and technologies that weren’t available in the paper world. It requires capabilities that don’t currently exist in legacy enterprise content management systems. Modern organizations need to enable their employees to do their jobs properly and become more efficient – that’s where content, and flexible business applications, play a big role. This is the evolution of content and content management.

In Nuxeo’s new Insights report, learn how content has evolved and is supporting new approaches to business innovation.

Specifically, you will learn:

** How content has slowly evolved from the static documents of yesterday.

** The new role content management systems play to support content, including Big Data.

** How to build content-centric applications that empower employees and customers.

** Learn why information is at the core of every modern business and what that means for building applications that foster innovation.

It’s not about building bigger better content management platforms that act as silos of information. It’s about building systems of empowerment – business applications that create and utilize content to support customers (both internal and external), systems that are flexible and quick to adapt as things change. Organizations that are able to bypass legacy systems and build at greater scale and lower cost will be disruptive, and they will be successful.
