ECT Televoting Technology Present at Eurovision 2019

Once again, the reliable and stable effECTive® Televoting technology delivers on its promise of uncompromised performance, regardless of the number of simultaneous calls and messages received during the world’s largest televoting event.

Munich, Germany, May 30, 2019 --( ECT (European Computer Telecoms AG), Europe’s leading communications software company for the realization of value-added services in nextgeneration networks, adds another year as an important contributor to an impeccable streak of televoting results from the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

By providing the effECTive® Televoting system to major carriers in Germany, Sweden and other countries, ECT has supported the annual song contest for many years running. Their solution allows callers to vote for their favorite performers, and for event organizers and networks to track the tally in real-time. It supports thousands of call attempts and messages per second (CAPS) and it’s highly redundant and reliable.

As this year’s event demonstrated, humans are error-prone if allowed to take part in the process, while quality technology can always be relied on, as stated by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). “The EBU can confirm, following standard review practices, we have discovered that due to a human error an incorrect aggregated result was used. This had no impact on the calculation of points derived from televoting across the 41 participating countries and the overall winner and Top 4 songs of the [Eurovision Song Contest 2019] remain unchanged,” they stated in a press release dated Wednesday, May 22.

“It’s our tried and true technology that imbues our platform with the reliability and stability our customers require for mass calling events like the Eurovision Song Contest,” says Dr. Marshall E. Kavesh, CEO of ECT. “Our effECTive Televoting platform is a robust and powerful solution like no other. We are always looking forward to providing our partners with solutions they can trust implicitly, no matter the scale.”
