FAIRFIELD, Conn., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It used to be that to monitor TV and radio broadcasts, users had to rely upon PC- and browser-based solutions. With the new iPhone app from TVEyes, TV and radio can be searched the moment it is broadcast, from anywhere in the world the user has access to the Internet. In addition to search, the app provides access to an unlimited watch list of search terms and phrases, playback of video and audio clips, and full-text transcripts.
The app provides access to the same US and global media markets as the user's TVEyes Media Monitoring Suite subscription, including network affiliates for all 210 US Designated Market Areas (DMAs), national cable stations and major market radio.
David Ives, CEO of TVEyes Inc. said, "TV and radio broadcasters break news every moment of every day. If your career, company or the lives of others depends on knowing what is broadcast, when it's broadcast, you need the TVEyes app for iPhone. TVEyes on the iPhone literally puts the world's TV and radio broadcasts in the palm of your hand."
Initial response from TVEyes customers has been enthusiastic. "On days when important news is breaking on topics of interest to my agency, I need instant access to local and network coverage from around the United States and abroad to ensure it is accurate," said Ross Feinstein, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Washington. "Being able to capture video and closed captioning within seconds after a keyword is mentioned is an invaluable resource for us. Keeping my colleagues and leadership informed of real-time news is of the utmost importance, and the TVEyes app for iPhone enables us to respond to stories within minutes of a segment being broadcast on either television or radio."
The TVEyes app for iPhone is free for users of the Media Monitoring Suite and is available for download in the Apple® App Storesm at this link. To access TVEyes content, a subscription to MMS is required. MMS is a professional service not intended for consumer use.
