LONDON, NEW YORK and VAASA, Finland, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Lumi Mobile, the specialist in consumer insight mobile technology and real-time audience engagement for market researchers, media companies and brands, has received confirmation that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted three separate patents protecting the company's core technologies.
The patents cover:
Cross-platform distribution - the ability to create and deliver content and behaviour to a number of different electronic devices, even when they have different operating systems or platforms. Users can experience the content in real time.
Synchronisation - a system for sending time-based content simultaneously to a variety of connected devices. Execution can occur within approximately one second, allowing actions - such as triggering questions - to be synchronized precisely with live events or broadcasts. This allows fair participation and accurate content evaluation.
Dynamic content - the ability to update content reliably and rapidly on a mobile device without having to refresh the page or re-install an app. New content may be created and sent to devices, either in response to a request (pulled), by producing new content on the server side (pushed) or by scheduled events being triggered. This enables real-time interactive services such as surveys, live voting and messaging, quizzes and games.
Commenting on the USPTO development, Richard Taylor, CEO of Lumi Mobile, said:
"This is a huge milestone in establishing Lumi's technology as the market leader in real time mobile interactivity. We are immensely proud of our development capability and the team continues to refine and improve the Lumi platform to the benefit of our clients in the research and insight, live event and audience engagement sectors."
Lumi Mobile's real-time Lumi LIVE communication platform creates interactive, engaging and effective meeting and live event environments, whether in one room or spread across the world, at the same time or independently. From video conferencing to crowd-sourcing at a major event, Lumi's native apps ensure absolute real time response, scalability and reliability.
Innovative solutions connect attendees with one another and their hosts, taking advantage of the knowledge and experience in attendance to attain critical quantitative and qualitative data to drive organisations' strategies.
Lumi SURVEY, the company's flexible mobile research platform, is deployable across all major mobile operating systems - iOS (Apple), Android, BlackBerry and Symbian. The tool's online and offline survey completion functionality allows for a seamless experience anywhere. Through mCAPI, Panel, Survey and Diary Apps, Lumi SURVEY offers: GPS location and validation; multimedia capture, upload and display; QR code access; barcode scanning and passive meter integration.
Both Lumi LIVE and Lumi SURVEY's Apps work with internet-enabled feature phones as well as smartphones to ensure a representative audience.
