NewBay Wins Folio: Marketing Awards for Customized Site and Integrated Marketing

NEW YORK, NY (December 13, 2016) — NewBay has won two 2016 Folio: Marketing Awards — one for the Best Customized Site (TWICE/LG CES 2016 Social Media Hub) and one for Integrated Marketing (Multichannel News and B&C/RSG Media Integrated Marketing Program). NewBay joined fellow winners at an award ceremony held this afternoon at New York City’s Yale Club.

According to Folio:, the winners of this year’s awards represent the greatest marketing achievements across both the B2B and consumer sectors of the industry, elevating their brands and clients to levels above and beyond the competition.

“We congratulate NewBay for being among our 2016 winners of the Folio: Marketing Awards,” says Folio: Vice President of Content Tony Silber. “These awards recognize the most innovative marketing activities in magazine media, and the honorees represent the best of the best in their peer sets.”

“We are honored to be recognized for our innovative marketing solutions capabilities and excited about the growth of our NewBay Plus Marketing Services Group,” says NewBay CEO Steve Palm. “This year, NewBay Plus has delivered more than 125 marketing programs to 115 different clients — solving their thought leadership, brand/product awareness, and demand-generation challenges.”

The winning programs are briefly outlined below.

TWICE/LG CES 2016 Social Media Hub
LG, one of the largest consumer electronics manufacturers in the world, has long supported the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as an exhibitor. At the 2016 CES, LG teamed with TWICE and NewBay Plus, NewBay’s Marketing Services Division, to create a Social Media Hub for CES 2016 where the TWICE editorial team curated the most relevant Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media postings for the show in real time. The site focused on the vital business and technology issues being discussed at CES with focus on CE manufacturers and retailers, the TWICE audience. This integrated marketing program gave exclusive exposure to LG’s social media and targeted CE and retailer marketing agendas at the show.

The hub became a trusted resource for show attendees, and, as a result, traffic expectations for the site were set at 25,000 and were exceeded by more than 100 percent.

Multichannel News and B&C/RSG Media Integrated Marketing Program
RSG Media needed to reach deeper into the rights management market with one of their popular products. To help them gain product awareness with this audience, NewBay Plus created an integrated multichannel marketing program that defined the growing rights management marketplace in the media and entertainment industry using the influential NewBay brands Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. The program included ads and custom content placed across the full portfolio of the brands, including magazines, newsletters, web sites, lead-generation ebook, and live and virtual events.

The results included more traffic to RSG’s online properties and a growth in sales.

NDIcentral Launches at IBC

NEW YORK, NY (September 8, 2016) – NewBay, publisher of TV Technology (TVT) and Creative Planet Network (CPN), has announced the launch of NDIcentral, a live social media hub designed to educate and inform the industry about NDI™, the Network Device Interface standard from NewTek. NewBay has partnered with NewTek on the hub, which goes live today, as the industry awaits the latest news from the IBC Conference in Amsterdam.

NDI is an open standard for video over IP that allows any NDI-enabled device on the network such as production switchers, graphics generators, capture systems, and media services to see and access content for live production. NDI is poised to have a big impact on the industry, and NDIcentral provides a valuable resource for NDI partners and users, who can also participate in the hub by adding the hashtag #NDIcentral to their social media posts.

At NDIcentral, TVT and CPN editors are curating a real-time feed of social media posts about NDI, including opinions from media & entertainment industry thought leaders, articles from TVT and CPN editors, and posts from NewTek and other companies. NDIcentral is being promoted exclusively on TVTechnology.com, Creativeplanetnetwork.com, and via NewTek’s worldwide marketing operation.

NDIcentral (www.tvtechnology.com/NDIcentral) can be found on tvtechnology.com and creativeplanet.com, as well as NewTek’s corporate website. Companies that support NDI also have the opportunity to sponsor the hub and have its valuable content on their own websites. Companies who want to sponsor the NDIcentral can contact TVT and CPN VP/Group Publisher Eric Trabb at etrabb@nbmedia.com.

“NewTek came to us looking for a publishing platform that would leverage our existing content on NDI as well as include posts and other industry information on the standard,” says Trabb. “Using a new social media curation technology, TVT and CPN were able to create a real-time industry-wide publishing platform that can reside on our sites as well as the websites of NewTek and other companies that support NDI.”

“NewTek NDI is an open standard anyone can implement to connect video equipment across a network,” says Donetta Colboch, VP of Marketing for NewTek Inc. “We’re very excited to be working with TV Technology and the Creative Planet Network on this truly innovative social media hub that can pull in all the best opinion, tutorial, and best-practice information available on NDI in a social media platform that can reside on a wide number of sites across the media and entertainment industry.”

“Just as AV-iQ did for the pro AV market, Vdeo-iQ provides the video, broadcast, and entertainment with a resource that allows for quick and efficient product spec’ing, while also giving gear and service providers a means to provide vital information to those who need it most,” states Mark Loftus, Operations Manager, Vdeo-iQ. “We are here to provide a crucial information link between the providers and the buyers.”

Participating manufacturers agree that the AV-iQ service, now joined by Vdeo-iQ, provides a valuable resource for reaching buyers:

Tech & Learning Nominated For Best Media Brand in the Jesse H. Neal Awards

NEW YORK, NY (February 22, 2016) — NewBay Media has announced that its Tech & Learning magazine, the leading edtech publication and resource for over 36 years, was named as a finalist for Best Media Brand in the Jesse H. Neal Awards competition.  The Neal Awards, produced by the SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association), honor editorial excellence in business publications, and are considered one of specialized journalism’s most important accolades.

Tech & Learning was nominated for Best Media Brand because of its commitment to provide factual and evaluative information on trends, products, and strategies to educators who purchase technology products in their districts and schools. The publication delivers the highest quality content and essential resources to manage, train, and teach technology through a truly integrated platform.

“We’re obviously thrilled to be selected as a finalist for the Neal Awards, especially in this category.” states Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director of Tech & Learning. “Tech& Learning has been publishing since 1980, which is a long time for any magazine, let alone one focused on technology. The fact that the brand continues to thrive is a testament to our readers, who are also the best contributors. This recognition also shows that we practice what we preach — delivering information and insights using whatever platform works best whether that means print, digital, or live in-person events.”

Entries for the Neal Awards are scored in three areas: journalistic enterprise, extent of service to the field, and editorial craftsmanship.  Winners will be announced in April.
