AdsWizz Launches AdWave Canada, Expanding AdWave Reach to 33 Countries

Partners with Media Sales Lab and leanStream to drive
Digital Audio Advertising Market in Canada


San Mateo, CA, March 15, 2016 — AdsWizz, the leading technology provider of advertising solutions for the digital audio market, announced today the expansion of AdWave, the largest global digital audio marketplace, into Canada.

Working with AdsWizz to help facilitate sales to advertisers and their agencies will be Media Sales Lab, one of Canada’s fastest-growing media sales agencies focused on innovative media offerings in broadcast, audio, digital and influencer marketing.

Under terms of the deal, Media Sales Lab’s sales team will sell AdWave inventory to Canadian advertisers, capitalizing on the large Canadian digital audio audience.

AdWave enables advertisers to deliver targeted audio ads tailored to listeners’ locations, listening devices, demographic categories and other profile elements in the USA, Europe, LATAM, APAC and now Canada. With this partnership, AdsWizz and Media Sales Lab are enabling advertisers to easily reach Canadian audiences across premium radio and music streaming brands.

“We are fully committed to the development of digital audio sales in Canada as a new source of revenue for broadcasters and high-value inventory placements for advertisers,” said Chris Nimigon, President of Media Sales Lab.

Several of Canada’s leading advertising agencies, including IPG Mediabrands, say they plan to use AdWave.

“Consumers’ media usage is not static, it’s incredibly dynamic” said David McDonald, VP, Director of Radio Investments at IPG Mediabrands. “Radio is no longer the sole vehicle delivering music, information and audio messaging.  As smart phone usage increases and they become personal multi-media devices, we have to become as dynamic to reach our targets.  This opportunity allows us to extend reach and position audio commercials on that increasingly relevant, personal platform.”

Media Sales Lab is the exclusive sales representative for leanStream, Canada’s leading provider of digital audio streaming services and AdsWizz’s AdWave Canada CDN partner.

“Our job is to provide the tools and services that deliver broadcasters audio content to their online audiences, and to take full advantage of the potential of digital delivery by connecting those audiences to advertisers with an unprecedented degree of precision” said David Huszar, leanStream President. “The combination of AdWave and Media Sales Lab is a powerful new tool for broadcasters and advertisers. We’re very excited to help launch this initiative to Canada.”

“AdsWizz is thrilled to partner with Media Sales Lab and leanStream, leaders in the Canadian radio industry, to harness the large and growing digital audio audience,” said Alexis van de Wyer, AdsWizz CEO. “The combination of AdWave’s reach in Canada, Media Sales Lab’s expertise in radio advertising sales, and leanStream’s rapidly growing list of Canadian streaming clients will generate tremendous value for both publishers and Canadian advertisers.”

“Through these new partnerships, AdsWizz is well-positioned to develop the next generation of digital audio advertising solutions to help Canadian publishers and advertisers capitalize on the growing market in Canada,” van de Wyer added.

leanStream adds Nielsen Player SDK Certification to its suite of player features

leanStream, a leading streaming solutions provider for radio broadcasters, has strengthened its commitment to the evolution of online audience measurement through the integration of Nielsen’s player SDK into the leanPlayer and GameDay web and mobile players.

Nielsen’s certification of the software integration confirms leanStream’s hybrid HTML5 players as a verified source of vital end-user listener analytics. The addition of Nielsen’s SDK allows Nielsen subscribers to unify analytics across linear and digital platforms, measuring the extension of broadcast radio to streaming environments.

“leanStream is very pleased to be able to contribute to Nielsen’s Total Audience initiative,” according to David Huszar, Business Lead for leanStream. “With radio’s audiences listening to their favourite stations across more platforms and devices all the time, the need for unified cross-platform reporting grows increasingly urgent.

leanPlayer is a cloud-based audio player built to maximize playability, auto-detecting device, browser and OS to seamlessly deliver HTML5 or Flash versions in AAC, MP3 or HLS, making listening online as easy as listening to the radio.
