The jury of FH St. Pölten has therefore decided the Austrian Radio Prize 2015 in the category “Best Innovation” goes to Lounge FM for “Tonio – Sound with Information: The World’s First Really Interactive Radio Quiz”.
This technology represents a significant development for the medium of radio for which countless new applications are possible.
The TV industry has been talking about and experimenting with the concept of the Second Screen for a long time. Broadcasters can now retain listeners while they are surfing on their mobile or tablet for more information or special content related to the program.
Tonio is an innovative platform that works with the default app or the company’s own. The fact that an Austrian company has entered into this development risk seems particularly remarkable.
