Captivate Unveils Rebrand of Elevator and Lobby Screen Networks
Mar 2 15
Captivate has unveiled an innovative, contemporary content presentation to increase engagement with a captivated audience of upscale, hard-to-reach business professionals and drive value for advertising and commercial real estate partners. The on-screen enhancements introduce new features and functionality including a redesign of the viewers most popular destination, the time and temperature window. This feature now consists of a background sky that dynamically changes to reflect current weather conditions and a cityscape to reinforce Captivate's unique positioning in more than 1,800 premier office buildings across North America's top urban markets. The window also expands to include finance, weather and sports news, and now remains on-screen during full-screen, non-advertising content. All enhancements combine to deliver a more valuable viewer experience. The upgrades take effect March 2, 2015 and occur against the backdrop of strong growth in 2014 including expansion into new markets and 220% viewership growth over the past five years, resulting in 12 million unique monthly viewers. The rebranding announcement comes just under one year since the company's acquisition of Office Media Network. The next generation of Captivate underscores ongoing innovations and strategic partnerships focused on driving value and expanding engagement opportunities with the Captivate audience: An increase in full-screen and rich-media content, creating a more engaging presentation with layouts reflecting modernized designs. An extended agreement positioning The Wall Street Journal as the preferred business news provider across the elevator network. Expanded content offerings on the lobby network through 100+ best-in-class content providers.
