SpotX, the leading global video advertising platform, today announced the expansion of its comprehensive Measurement and Attribution Suite. The extensive offering provides advertisers the ability to accurately attribute ad spend across video channels including connected TV (CTV) and is the most robust in-market for video. By uncovering valuable audience reach metrics like brand lift, incremental reach and frequency, and outcome-based measurement, advertisers can more accurately pinpoint the value across all video channels.
With the largest number of measurement relationships in-market among SSPs, SpotX is able to provide a 360-degree view of campaign KPIs. SpotX has relationships with 11 leading measurement and analytics companies including Comscore, Kantar, Nielsen, STAQ, and Tru Optik. Kantar and Comscore also act as brand lift partners, allowing advertisers to gauge how viewers feel about a brand, measure brand recognition, and test creative assets. Outcome-based measurement partners, such as Comscore enable advertisers to link CTV exposure to digital actions, such as online purchases or website traffic.

Additionally, through attribution relationships with NCSolutions (NCS), NinthDecimal, Placed powered by Foursquare, and PlaceIQ, brands can accurately measure foot traffic to brick and mortar locations and in-store purchases from digital video ads. SpotX's comprehensive suite ensures that advertisers spending across CTV are able to accurately attribute ad spend to digital.
Through our preferred partnership with SpotX, our mutual clients have been able to use NinthDecimal's Location Conversion Index (LCI®) for footfall attribution to clearly measure and understand the value and power of their digital video ad campaigns.

SpotX also offers capabilities through Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings (DAR) for CTV, including next-day view of audience demographics and ad delivery for mobile web, mobile app, desktop, and connected devices. Nielsen's metrics help brands understand the incremental reach of a campaign's ad on connected TV and linear TV.
SpotX's partnership with Tru Optik allows advertisers to leverage mid and post-campaign reporting to identify if ads are reaching behavior and interest-based targets.
Brands and media buyers have known the value of CTV inventory, however, there hasn't been a concrete way of showing how these ads drive actions or purchases. By collaborating with the most respected measurement and attribution companies in the industry, we can help brands provide meaningful experiences for consumers, as well as effectively measure and accurately attribute how video ad spend across OTT channels leads to tangible online and in-store conversions.
- Kristen Williams, VP, Strategic Partnerships at SpotX
MBuy, a leading media planning and buying applied-technology service company, is one of several advertising agencies opting in to SpotX's offering. MBuy provides advertisers with media buying and planning services that reach and engage audiences within specific channels.
"Evaluating metrics like brand lift performance and cross-screen measurement validation are just a few of the many key insights important to our clients," said Michael Parent, SVP, Strategy, Media & Operations at MBuy. "The comprehensive studies provided by SpotX allow us to deliver valuable resources to help our clients make smarter ad decisions."

Adapt is FourthWall's method of onboarding advertising campaign data from any source, including linear as-run logs, addressable exposure files, and digital impression data, and analyzing the combined impressions to produce holistic campaign performance analytics. Reveal will now quickly and easily generate insights such as Tune-In Reporting, Optimal Frequency Analysis, and Attribution for any custom or syndicated audience segment. Adapt continues the development of FourthWall's vision of a comprehensive and independent media analytics platform.

(NYSE: NLSN) Smart TV viewership data, enabling marketers to have more holistic viewing data from both traditional and Smart TV devices covering all U.S. markets. By leveraging Nielsen's powerful and patented ACR technology from millions of Smart TVs, FourthWall is adding glass-level content and ad exposure data to its end-to-end analytics platform at scale.

In addition, we've extended our ability to import ad campaign data from linear as-run logs to now include addressable and digital exposure files. All the ingredients necessary in automating cross-platform media analytics are now brought together within Reveal.

Candid announces that communication agency Coopr is joining the Candid platform. The founders, Jody Koehler and Jos Govaart, will join as partners of Candid and at the same time will continue as the management of Coopr. With this latest acquisition, Candid is taking the next step in bringing together all marketing and communications disciplines into a fully integrated platform for advertisers

Coopr will continue to operate as an autonomous agency under its own name within the Candid platform. "By joining the Candid platform, we retain our individuality, but we can immediately deepen and broaden our offer and at therefore offer our clients more integrated and other disciplines", say owners Jody Koehler and Jos Govaart. "In addition, the correlation between PR and other communication disciplines is more relevant than ever. Good brand ideas are most credibly propagated through PR efforts." By becoming part of the Candid platform, Coopr can now also shape its ambition with regard to further internationalization with a London branch in the not too distant future.
Ruud Wanck, CEO of Candid: "Coopr is an absolute premium brand in the field of PR and corporate communication. Their entrepreneurial spirit fits in perfectly with our platform strategy in which we bring together strong and distinctive agencies into an integrated platform. Within Candid, agencies retain their own culture and identity, but our clients always have direct access to our services across the full range of the marketing and communication profession. With the acquisition of Coopr, we now also have a leading agency within our platform in the – increasingly important – field of PR and corporate communication."

Through acquisitions of media agencies STROOM, M2Media and BBK media, digital agency Online Company and digital experience agency Havana Harbor, social media expert Daily Dialogues, advertising agency XXS, global brand design specialist Millford and marketing innovation agency Cogonez, Candid became the largest independent marketing and advertising platform in the Netherlands.
