Regio Exchange: how does it work?
Egeniq has developed the technology behind this new site and app functionality, called Region Exchange, which enables the exchange of new items. A true challenge, since many broadcasters have their own systems based on different technologies, all of which had to be integrated. To be able to use the new functionality, users must download the latest versions of the region apps. When first using the app and the website of a regional broadcaster, they are asked via a pop-up if they want to see the national and regional news of the NOS. Next, the most important items are shown, labelled with a clearly visible NOS-logo.
NOS website and app users also see a pop-up. In this case, it is asked if they want to access news in their region. After clicking on the pop-up, they can select 1 or 2 regional broadcasters of regional news items. This selection can always be changed again later on. Next, the most important news items of the regional broadcasters selected are shown, with the NOS-logo on the front page of the website.
