Streaming is here to stay, providing access to a worldwide audience for everyone. Ticketing however changes the ball game completely, demanding secure streaming (one ticket = one stream), easy payment systems and handling of copyright & performance rights payments to all applicable collection societies. That is where NOTV comes in: we handle all these issues for you and provide you with an easy marketing and promotion toolkit. You just play!
On top of that, NOTV introduces ‘micro-geofencing’. This allows you to draw your own perimeter limits, e.g. around a city, building, park, beach area, playing field etc. By restricting the geographical area in which your streaming content will play, your event or content can now be “location-based”. You decide where your content can be viewed or heard, stimulating your target audience to physically visit that area. Let that sink in… as scarcity creates demand, imagine what new formats or business models you can now create!
Accelerated by todays pandemic circumstances the world seeks improved and tailored ways to communicate, engage and for many: alternative ways to make a living. Key aspects hereby are relevance, trustworthiness, ease of use, and last but not least: reach. Especially the heavily hit cultural branche urgently needs innovative business models and marketing tools in order to survive. The technological ingredients are here; critical now is the quest for affordable, efficient and sustainable models and applications offering authentic, high value connectivity to a local or worldwide passionate audience.
NOTV’s mission is to fulfill today’s changing communication and business needs by providing an accessible flexible solution for individuals and companies to communicate and monetize their music, ideas or services. We do this by creating a platform offering a unique integration of technologies and tools that enable our clients to provide their services and entertainment as they choose to whoever they choose.
This way NOTV aims to stimulate creativity and help provide economic relief to worldwide artists, cultural entrepreneurs, venues, institutions and companies. At the same time NOTV offers an exciting new service for any creative mind to bring their talent, idea or service to the right audience. Hassle-free, accessible for all. Check our plans.
