Captivate LLC and FrontRunner Technologies Announce Expanded North American Partnership and New Product Offering, Captivate Windowfront®
NEW YORK, NY – May 17, 2022 — Captivate, a leading digital-out-of-home video network, today announced a US expansion of its sales representation partnership with FrontRunner Technologies, and the introduction of its flagship product offering, Captivate Windowfront®, to the US market.
Captivate Windowfront®, powered by FrontRunner Technologies, is a state-of-the-art media product that transforms vacant urban building fronts into digital out-of-home screens. This partnership combines Captivate’s ad sales expertise with FrontRunner’s projection and interactive technology to deliver large format digital advertising solutions at scale within major urban centers across the US. Along with its audio and light recognition platform, QR code activation and opt-in sound enablement, this product empowers advertisers to turn prime street-level real estate into immersive content.
“We are constantly looking for new ways to deliver high-value audiences at various touchpoints throughout the day, and this partnership extends our offering into a whole new territory,” said Lorenzo Papa, CRO of Captivate. “Historically, Captivate inventory has been focused on indoor environments capturing consumers at natural pause points during their busy routines. Windowfront® brings the Captivate experience outdoors but maintains our unique differentiating value with actionable content that invites interaction. The ability to leverage these high impact installations in strategically located areas of dense urban markets allows brands the opportunity to connect with consumers in a whole new way. We are thrilled to bring such a groundbreaking innovation to our advertising partners.”
“Our new partnership – expanding on our pre-existing Canadian alignment – represents a true meeting of the minds. Captivate and FrontRunner have longstanding relationships with leading landlords driving innovation into their ecosystems. Our value-add is heightened by this joining of forces,” says Nathan Elliott, Founder and CEO of FrontRunner. “With the talented Captivate team, we look forward to providing unique windows of opportunity for advertisers, brands, landlords and retailers throughout the US who are focused on immersive media in great American cities.”
