Vice President of Local Station Management AT RENTRAK!

Thank you Adam and to the club members/supporters who attended.

Meeting takeaways:

- RENTRAK includes TV viewing daily from more than 210,000
NORFOLK-Portsmouth-Newport News DMA homes

- The database of Return Path Data (RPD) information comes from
a portion of COX, CHARTER, DIRECT-TV and DISH's home TV subscribers

- Demographics (age/gender/children in home/etc) and Psychographics  (home income, lifestyle characteristics)
are directly matched to RENTRAK homes with EXPERIAN Data.

- Auto ownership data is matched in a similar manner with IHS POLK Automotive data.

-Other database matches are done as well for Political and shopping behavior.

- Age cell breakdowns are matched via EXPERIAN data confirming the existence
of specific trait people who reside in a home. Viewing data is then applied to
each member of the home when viewing is detected in that home.
