Fourth Emmy For Ericsson In TV Advertising

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  * Emmy awarded from National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for Video
    on Demand Dynamic Advertising Insertion
  * Ericsson key in creating and developing advertising standard most commonly
    deployed today
  * Demonstration of game-changing multi-screen solution for today's TV Anywhere
    advertising needs at IBC 2013
Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) today announced it will receive a Technology &
Engineering Emmy® Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
for its pioneering development of dynamic ad insertion for Video on Demand (VOD)
content. This marks Ericsson's fourth Emmy and it will be formally presented to
Ericsson at a ceremony on January 9, 2014 in the Bellagio Hotel during the
Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, USA.

Ericsson has been a leading developer of VOD technology for over ten years and
was an early mover in the dynamic, on-demand advertising space. In the early
2000's, Ericsson recognized the impact that time-shifted TV consumption was
going to have on the advertising market and on the monetization of TV services.
It created dynamic insertion technologies to keep ad assets fresh and relevant
in on-demand video streams.

Ericsson played a vital role in the creation and development of the standard
that is still the most commonly deployed advertising standard today by global
television service providers; SCTE 130 family of standards.

Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support
Solutions, Ericsson says: "Ericsson is honored to be awarded another prestigious
Emmy this year by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. This is
our fourth Emmy win, and validates our dedication to helping content owners,
broadcasters, TV service providers and operators to give consumers the best
viewing experience possible."

At IBC this week, Ericsson (1.D61) will continue its pioneering work in
advertising with its evolved multi-screen advertising capability that delivers
linear, VOD, interactive, and second screen advertising across all connected
devices for today's burgeoning multi-screen TV Anywhere advertising needs.

Ove Anebygd, Vice President and Head of Solution Area Media, Ericsson says: "Ten
years ago, Video on Demand revolutionized the TV industry and re-shaped the way
advertisers connected with their audiences. Now, a multi-screen environment is
taking hold of that revolution with the proliferation of smartphones, tablets,
and other mobile devices. Ericsson's forward-thinking solution generates new
methods of advertising for today's multi-screen world by delivering targeted and
personalized advertising for a more effective and positive consumer experience."
