Knorex ARise Nominated for Global New Media Award
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
International IT experts select best mobile apps for UN-based World Summit Award Mobile
Singapore, 31 August 2012 — They guide wheelchair users to the next elevator, track earthquake victims, monitor elections, or provide cash transfer opportunities for unbanked migrant workers. Mobile apps have become a lot more than fancy gimmicks. But what is the world's best when it comes to mobile content? This year, Singapore's Knorex ARise™ has been nominated for the World Summit Award and will compete for its place among the world's best mobile content.
Being one of the apps that made it through the national pre-selection process Knorex ARise™ settled the race in the category Digital Content and may soon rock the international stage.
Knorex ARise™ enhances print or physical media (ads or editorial contents) with interactive contents and enables engagements and interactive experience on printed materials or physical media/contents by delivering dynamic content or updates right to the viewers where and when they want it. Viewers will now be able to have instant access to various kinds of call-to-action, for instance, to register for a contest, indicate their willingness to attend test drive for a car, check out a coupon and the restaurants, view gallery or additional multimedia on a particular news article etc. The possibility is just immense.
International Jury DecidesIn September, an international jury of renowned IT experts and industry leaders will evaluate the nominated product. Jury members come from all continents and have backgrounds in the creative industries, telecommunication, advertising, journalism and research, as well as in teaching. The jury also includes representatives of international organisations in the ICT-for-development field.
"Consequently, it is not a product's commercial success that matters most for the jury", emphasizes Peter A. Bruck, Chairman of the WSA Board. According to Bruck, the Grand Jury will judge the value of the content as well as the product's design and its technical realisation. Furthermore, each nominee's contribution to bridging the digital divide will play a central role for the jury.
"WSA-mobile's goal is to find out what works in different markets and in different parts of the world and what really makes a difference for the people in remote villages and global megacities. We want to show to decision makers what can be done to foster mobile’s potential to create a true information society", states Bruck.
On Top of the Mobile WorldFor Singapore's producers, the WSA-mobile is a chance to raise global awareness for their products and enter the international stage. Those projects that will come out on top of the Jury's decision will be invited to the WSA-mobile Winner's Events taking place 3rd to 5th February 2013 in Abu Dhabi. The event will host an exhibition, offering a platform for the awardees to present their services and projects to potential partners and investors. Furthermore, the event will include a conference attended by renowned experts, opinion leaders and government representatives, turning Abu Dhabi in the hot spot of the mobile world.
About Knorex ARise™Knorex ARise is an end-to-end augmented reality platform that transforms ads or editorial contents found in the printed materials or physical media such as newspapers, magazines, posters, CD/DVD cover, or even billboard into interactive experiences for the viewers.
The contents are brought to 'life' instantaneously when the viewers hover their smart mobile devices over an ad, image or article. The viewers are presented with overlay of engaging elements such as gallery, multimedia (audio and video), social media, forms, location maps, 3D models, banners and more. These engagements are translated into measurable outcomes and leads for the publishers and advertisers while enabling contextually relevant contents to be presented to the viewers on an on-going basis.
The platform comes complete with a mobile SDK (iOS and Android) for fast integration and a campaign management system to allow the publishers to easily manage and make modifications to any engagements dynamically. The resulting engagements are presented as a rich set of interaction measurements.
