August 9, 2018

BOGOTA, Colombia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2018--Triton Digital ®, a leading technology provider for the global audio industry, announced today that RCN Radio, the largest radio station group in Colombia, has selected Triton Digital to deliver and monetize its streaming audio content.

Through this partnership, RCN will utilize Triton’s robust audio streaming network to deliver a high-quality listening experience across their 169 stations. In addition, they will use Triton’s highly-flexible ad server, Tap, to dynamically insert targeted audio ads into their online streams, resulting in a more engaging and personalized experience for their listeners, and a higher return for their advertisers.

To support their monetization goals, RCN will make their online audio inventory available in Triton’s global programmatic marketplace, a2x®, which will enable media buyers across LATAM and other parts of the world to reach their engaged listening audience through non-skippable, at-scale buys for the first time. RCN will manage their inventory within the exchange using Triton’s audio SSP, Yield-Op, to control access to their inventory, pricing, ad quality settings, and the configuration of open and private deals with specific buyers, brands, or sales houses.
