Let's introduce
ourselves

Since founded in 2011, Zoom Media has come a long way.

From working solely with human intelligence, to working with artificial intelligence at the same time, we use ‘the best of two worlds’ and have created a hybrid form of media monitoring which makes us the #1 in the Netherlands to date. We believe as much in human intelligence as artificial intelligence, a combination of the two therefore only makes sense.

2011

Zoom Media started out as a basic clipping service for several customers.

Quite soon though, it became clear that the field of radio and television monitoring was ready for a much needed update.

2013

We began by developing an online back office for our team members.

Now we were able to work day and night, since we weren’t bound to an office anymore. We were able to add a significant number of radio- and television-stations and programmes to our monitoring list.

2015

As the amount of data we covered grew, so did our team and client database.

We noticed that speed became more and more important to our clients. By implementing our speech recognition software Speech2Text, we were able to service our clients real-time.

2016

Nowadays our clients can choose between real-time hits based on speech recognition software and summaries written out by our team members in for more context.

And if our clients don’t want to choose, they simply choose for a combination of the two, in other words:
‘the best of two worlds’

The next step

would be to give our clients a small glimpse in the future to stay more or less ahead of the news. We decided to add a Calendar to the MyZoom portal. Our team members fill up the Calendar with announcements they hear and/or see on radio and television. This way clients can anticipate what the news – relevant to them - will be.

“The radio and television fragments delivered by Zoom Media form an important part of our news bulletins. With the high-quality and relevance of the fragments they make an important contribution to the media pictures we draw.”
