About

Tectonic Interactive is the award-winning media technology business, with clients including the UK's leading broadcasters ITV, the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. The Tectonic platform is trusted and used by TV broadcasters and radio stations to manage large-scale interaction with their TV audiences, on programmes ranging from The X Factor to Love Island. Tectonic Interactive was awarded the prize for “Best Digital Platform Innovation” and “Best App” by Broadcast Magazine and “Best Content Innovation” at IBC. The company was a finalist for the BAFTA TV Craft Awards.

GDPR Compliant Competition Platform – GDPR ready

The Tectonic competition platform enables broadcasters to run competitions which are compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This enables broadcasters, radio networks and media companies to be GDPR ready, comply with GDPR regulations and demonstrate regulatory compliance with the Information Commissioners Office. Competition entrants remain in control of their data. After a verification check, consumers can view and amend data held about them and enact their ‘right to be forgotten’. Data is securely managed by Tectonic Interactive as the data processor. By using Tectonic Interactive’s solution, broadcasters are enabled to continue working with digital agencies, brands and sponsors and achieve compliance with GDPR regulations.

Secure Voting Platform

The Tectonic voting platform enables millions of viewers to interact with their favourite TV shows. The secure voting platform handles sudden spikes of interactive traffic elegantly, reliably and accurately. The platform enables broadcasters to provide in-app voting, website voting, on Twitter and Facebook. Tectonic is the voting platform of choice for TV broadcasters in the UK.

Interaction with Quiz shows and game shows

The Tectonic interactive platform is used to enable real-time audience interaction with game shows and quiz shows. The platform is used where the result must be 100% accurate; where a prize is at stake; where viewers have paid; where viewer data must remain secure and where the audience directly influences the outcome of the show.

Compliant Services

Tectonic Interactive’s data security specialists ensure that our services are compliant with EU and UK data security laws, GDPR regulations and broadcaster guidelines. We ensure that personally identifiable information is stored and managed securely. Our Information Security Management System is certified as compliant with ISO 27001/02.
