Safety and cost-effective does not conflict!
New media group, MediaCorp is Singapore’s largest and most mature broadcast group, which plays an important role in the development of radio and television history of Singapore. Radio broadcasting began in June 1963, TV broadcasting in February 1963. Its business covers television, radio, movies, entertainment products, newspapers, magazines, electronic media and other broadcast services.
The annual Star Awards is the highest level of TV awards in Singapore, of which most audiences are elders, and the proportion of young people is marginal. MediaCorp hopes to attract more young people to participate. Therefore, in addition to the traditional telephone voting, it implemented online voting. MediaCorp needs a stable and high cost performance voting system, which can scale up the backend resources with the growing number of votes in the voting, and reduce the resources in low peak period.
