SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Innovative Startup Studio The
Giant Pixel Corporation today announced the availability of the Antenna

entertainment-based content accessible on the go.

Antenna Radio was conceived to address the evolving demand from radio
listeners who are migrating from conventional radio but want to stay
connected to real-time news with personalized content, program
flexibility and uninterrupted mobile access anywhere they go.
Antenna Radio offers radio fans a terrestrial radio-like listening
experience conveniently wrapped up in a smart mobile app. The short-form
talk, information and entertainment programing on Antenna is customized
to meet each listener's specific preferences. The more a listener uses
the app, the more personalized the content becomes. In addition, Antenna
Radio also provides listeners with access to convenient regional or
locaion-based information including traffic and weather updates.
"Many of us drive to work or go for a run, and while we're active,
reading Twitter (News - Alert) or CNN content on a screen is not an option. Antenna
Radio is a new way to stay connected to timely, personalized content
that fits right into our busy daily schedules," said Elliot Loh, creator
of Antenna Radio and co-founder at The Giant Pixel Corporation. "When
using Antenna Radio, listeners can stay connected to time-sensitive and
'perishable' content such as news, sports or entertainment, in a more
convenient way. Our goal is to reinvent the terrestrial radio
experience, giving listeners access to the world-class talk radio they
love, but delivered when and where they want it."
Currently, Antenna Radio boasts more than 1,000 channels of curated high
quality, short-form content. Channels are selected according to criteria
such as quality, length and relevance to the experience users want.
Channels are further targeted by proximity to major U.S. radio listening
markets, and users have the option of adding location-based updates like
local weather and traffic reports. With each use, Antenna Radio learns
listener preferences and draws on crowd-sourced ratings to adjust each
user's programming in real-time, building up 30 minutes of program clips
to match their behaviors and tastes.
Antenna Radio also provides several key benefits for the app's curated
program content. Specifically, the Antenna interface has been designed
to help promote radio show producers with a player interface that
supports branded program graphics and a "channel profile" that includes
hooks to social platforms like Twitter and links directly to selected
radio show websites. In addition, Antenna Radio plays audio directly
from radio program servers, preserving producers' relationships with
listeners and partners.
Antenna Radio is one of a growing portfolio of products developed by
Giant Pixel, with a mission to create real value by connecting people to
the things they need, want or love through the Internet. Giant Pixel's
product portfolio now includes both Nama,
a fresh take on project management, and Antenna Radio.
