Livedash is mReplay’s flagship platform, offering customers the ability to capture, analyze, and understand traditional and social media conversations.

Livedash is the world’s first real-time listening platform that captures and indexes what is being mentioned on live TV, what people are talking about and sharing on social networks, and journalism wires of worldwide news agencies. Our powerful search technology is currently being used by companies and organizations who want to get a pulse of what information is being broadcasted, what and how users are sharing information, and even the sentiment of how people react or narrate this information themselves.

We believe there are at least three popular facets of live information, where there are ongoing, popular, socially-relevant narrations of our world: Television, traditional journalism, and the Web. Some people consume all three of these sources of information, whereas others may rely exclusively on just one source. When researchers, marketers, or others are only able to search one or two of these narratives, they only get a partial idea of what information people are receiving and absorbing. Livedash gives you insight to all these facets of live information.
