PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in precisely measuring movies and TV everywhere, serving the advertising, television and movie industries, today announced a multi-year StationView Essentials contract with Compass Marketing and Consulting, a local advertising agency in Tallahassee, Fla.

Compass Marketing and Consulting will adopt Rentrak's local TV ratings currency, including its Polk Automotive Segmentation, to make more efficient and effective advertising buys for its TV advertising clients.

"We're proud that Compass Marketing and Consulting is the first agency in Florida's state capital to be using Rentrak ratings," stated Daryl Green, agency director at Compass Marketing and Consulting. "We believe that electronically gathering TV audience data based on thousands of homes year-round, versus collecting just a few hundred paper diaries a few times of year, is a superior way to measure viewing. Rentrak's daily demography will provide our clients the kind of advanced analytics they need to make even more efficient media-buying decisions."
