Data Robotics, MAXON, and SmartSound Sponsor Launch of BuZZ Shout-Out!

Agoura Hills, California – Data Robotics, Inc, MAXON Computer and SmartSound Software, Inc. are three companies with one goal in common – to help a job find you. These three companies chose to sponsor the launch of the BuZZ Shout-Out! on the Digital Production BuZZ, the foremost interactive internet talk radio show, featuring news and information on digital video production, post-production and distribution. The BuZZ Shout-Out! is a new service that lets everyone in film, video, or audio production or post-production reach a highly targeted market by creating a compelling, 30-second audio Shout-Out! to promote their services. Thanks to the sponsorship of Data Robotics, MAXON Computers and SmartSound Software the service is free to users.

“We are extremely pleased with the initial response from our listeners to the Buzz Shout-Out!” said Larry Jordan, Executive Producer and Host of the Digital Production Buzz. “Over 30,000 people have visited the BuZZ Shout-Out! website since we announced this two weeks ago! But we are even more grateful to our three launch sponsors, without whom this would not have been possible.”

Mark Fuccio, Senior Director of Products and Markets for Data Robotics, Inc., makers of beyond RAID Drobo systems, has enthusiastically supported the BuZZ Shout-Out! since he first heard about it. “Data Robotics is very pleased to be a launch sponsor of the Digital Production Buzz Shout-Out!” said Fuccio. “Drobo has been very warmly received by the video production community and we are delighted to contribute our help back to the industry.”

MAXON Computer, developer of professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering solutions, is equally engaged. “We are excited to participate with the Digital Production BuZZ in this new marketing opportunity because it ties in with our strong belief that when we help people to become better at their craft, the entire industry benefits,” said Paul Babb, President and CEO, MAXON US.

Brian Dickman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SmartSound Software, Inc., maker of Sonicfire Pro, said, “When I first heard about the BuZZ Shout-Out! I thought it was a great idea and a perfect fit for SmartSound. Since we have a large worldwide customer base that is involved in audio and video production, we like the idea of doing something to help that community. By partnering with Larry Jordan on The BuZZ Shout-Out! we can make a greater impact than working alone.”

Editors, directors, producers, set designers, or anyone else directly involved with production or post-production can create a 30-second audio Shout-Out! describing their services and letting prospective employers know what they can do. The Digital Production BuZZ, which reaches tens of thousands of listeners a month around the world (over 30% of the BuZZ audience is outside the U.S.) began running these weekly Shout-Outs! on its internet radio show November 4th.

To increase the audience for BuZZ Shout-Outs!, the 30-second spots are included on the Digital Production BuZZ Shout-Out! website, highlighted in Buzz Twitter and FaceBook accounts, and in the weekly Digital Production BuZZ newsletter; plus other marketing opportunities provided by launch sponsors.
