PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak Corporation (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in multi-screen media measurement serving the advertising, television and entertainment industries, today announced an OnDemand Essentials contract with Oscilloscope Laboratories for the company's Oscilloscope Pictures division which distributes unique, independently-produced films in theaters, on TV, DVD, digitally and internationally.
"When we brought Debra Fisher on board to run the O-Scope Digital division, she yelled at me for weeks to get signed up for Rentrak. Now that we have it, we don't need a crystal ball guessing our numbers and frankly, my days are filled with less yelling," said David Fenkel, president, Oscilloscope Laboratories.
Rentrak's OnDemand Essentials processes daily, census-level on-demand data representing over 90 million set-top boxes from 38 cable, telco and satellite providers and 100% of the top-25 operators offering video-on-demand. Rentrak's extensive on-demand data is used by more than 150 network and studio clients.
"The proliferation of independent film content being distributed via the on-demand platform illuminates the growing trend of the studios searching for alternative, digital ways to reach their audience. OnDemand Essentials helps the indie studio-distributor not only manage their content but provides the essential tools and intelligence to fully monetize this powerful platform," said Gordon Jones, Rentrak's Vice President of OnDemand Essentials.
