EveryZing is Now RAMP: Company Announces New Content Optimization Platform for Media Publishing

EveryZing, a leader in universal search and publishing solutions for dynamic web publishing, announced today the that it has launched the next generation of its award-winning RAMP platform that integrates the company’s growing portfolio of Content Optimization solutions used by the largest media companies, broadcasters and content publishers across the Web. Accompanying the launch of the new platform, the company has also renamed and rebranded itself as RAMP Inc.

“Over the past three years of the company’s history, we’ve continued to build our core technologies for solutions to grow audience and revenue for online audio, video, text and images for the best known brands in television, media and publishing,” said Tom Wilde, CEO of RAMP. “Given that our existing capabilities are already deployed in scale and proven in the field, RAMP is the industry’s most advanced Content Optimization platform to drive discovery, engagement and monetization universally for all types of web content.”

RAMP Content Optimization

RAMP Content Optimization enables media companies to maximize the revenue potential of content through optimizing the discovery and engagement of content across the web and on their sites. At the core of Content Optimization is a highly evolved workflow optimization engine that integrates with existing publishing platforms to extract relevant facets of content – be that text, video, audio or image content – as contextual metadata and syntax for the content. Using natural language processes applied to this metadata with empirical web search and browsing behavior of users, content can be dynamically published, syndicated, or targeted with high degree of precision and relevance to publishers’ objectives.

RAMP Platform Solutions

RAMP is an open, flexible and modular (SaaS) platform comprising a growing portfolio of technologies originally developed at BBN, one of the world’s foremost research organizations at more than $100M government funded research in speech to text and natural language processing technologies. Subsequent technologies added to this portfolio allowed media publishers to make any kind of content highly discoverable through faceted parsing of data from video, text, audio and images, and creating topic indices towards making publishers’ content search-engine optimized and site-search friendly. The metadata created also enables advanced contextual advertising strategies and syndication capabilities to be exploited, improving monetization capabilities of content, both by itself and as a result of increased engagement through discovery and relevance. In aggregate, RAMP is a platform based solution designed to provide highly scalable and fast time-to-market implementations of these solutions with specific vertical market emphasis and modularity.

“Content publishers are in the midst of a business transition that will make online channels the mainstay of their franchises. As they do, the findability of their content becomes a critical success factor,” said Hadley Reynolds, Dir. Search & Digital Marketplace at IDC. “Whether the product is a song, a TV show, a news clip, or a newspaper, consumers want to be able to connect to the content they want seamlessly and quickly. This means that media and publishing houses – and anyone publishing content online – will look to tools like the RAMP platform which help make content discoverable through search engines and contextualized to customers’ consumption preferences. Achieving a positive user experience here will drive monetization and amp returns from the online channel.”

Key customer benefits of RAMP Content Optimization are:

The company had announced a Series C round of funding earlier in the year with existing investors, and led by new strategic investor NBC’s Peacock Equity, towards growing sales and marketing initiatives. The company also announced major licensing agreements across NBC web properties, among other deals that have yet to be announced, with average deal sizes increasing by 120% over the previous year.
