VOTING ON THE TV WEEK LOGIE AWARDS DEMONSTRATES AUSTRALIAN AUDIENCES ENTHUSIASM FOR LIVE INTERACTIVITY

Great Success for Logie Awards 2019 with voting by Tectonic

For the second year in a row, Tectonic worked with Bauer Media to deliver live public voting for the TV Week Logie Awards, broadcast live on the Australia’s Channel Nine.

The Tectonic voting service was integrated with the nowtolove.com.au website, with viewers able to vote for nominees in 11 categories, including the coveted TV Week Gold Logie Award, for the most popular personality on Australian TV.

Viewers were authenticated by the Google Firebase platform, with vote integrity being secured through viewers having to submit a 4 digit PIN code that was sent to their Australian mobile number, ensuring that they could only cast a maximum of 1 vote per category.

Tamika Hennessey (TV Week Logie Awards Project Manager) ‘The Tectonic platform has enabled us to conduct live public voting as the stars walked down the red carpet. Building on from the success of last year, we saw excellent levels of engagement from the audience, which is a fantastic result for the awards, and a really positive trend to see.

From a Bauer Media perspective, the whole project with Tectonic has again run entirely smoothly and efficiently, from set-up, through to thorough testing and rehearsals, and onto the final execution during the live show with tight turn-around times’.

For the fifth season in a row Tectonic were chosen to successfully deliver voting for The Voice Australia.

As a first for the show, this season the voting functionality was integrated with the broadcaster’s 9now.com.au website rather than via a stand-alone app for the show. Viewers were also authenticated via the broadcasters own single sign-on system for the first time.

Kate Bolas (Head of Commercial ITV Studios Australia)

“We were really pleased with the results of the switch from in-app voting to integrating with the 9Now website. The change delivered a record number of votes, drove significant levels of user sign-ups and ongoing engagement for the broadcaster’s own web platform.

Always a safe set of hands working through complex solutions their attention to detail, foresight and contingency planning are second to none. We look forward to our next successful project with team Tectonic.”
