Andreas Widmer, Helmut Dietl, Professor at the University Zurich and Wilmaa-founder Thomas Gabathuler will join the Board of rayneer.tv.

Rayneer, a start-up from Zurich, offers personalized music TV. With the help of a free app on a smartphone, tablet or via a web browser the viewer receives exactly the music videos he or she wants. This is made possible through linking with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. The beta-version of the app was launched one year ago. The service is free for its users. Rayneer generates revenue with advertisement. The platform is marketed by Goldbach Audience.

Rayneer was founded in 2011 by OIiver Flueckiger (CEO) and Yannick Koechlin (CTO) in Zurich.
