OneScreen.ai | August 04, 2022
OneScreen.ai, the marketplace provider for buying and selling out-of-home (OOH) advertising, has launched the most comprehensive public directory of OOH advertising inventory with more than 3,200 OOH providers, including media companies, vendors and agencies, and more than 864,000 media listings across various categories, including billboards, street furniture, transit, and more in 340 different formats. OOH providers accustomed to manually managing inventory, long sales cycles, and time-consuming processes can now utilize a free, searchable listing in OneScreen.ai’s directory and a suite of free tools to seamlessly manage their inventory in one place, accelerate sales conversations, and become easily discoverable by potential buyers. OneScreen.ai’s robust directory is the basis for building the first public ecosystem in OOH that allows providers to interact openly and freely with buyers and marketers.
“Building and deploying this exhaustive directory is the genesis to ensuring everyone can easily and openly buy or sell OOH ads,” said Sam Mallikarjunan, co-founder and CEO of OneScreen.ai.
“Building and deploying this exhaustive directory is the genesis to ensuring everyone can easily and openly buy or sell OOH ads,” said Sam Mallikarjunan, co-founder and CEO of OneScreen.ai. “While other directories exist in the OOH space, none are democratized — completely open and public, without a third party intermediating to keep sellers from interacting with buyers. Now, that is no longer the case. We have incredible respect for the OOH industry’s tremendous and long-standing growth, and our mission is to continue working collaboratively with industry friends and partners to even further accelerate the success of OOH.”
Media owners are able to upload, edit, and sell their inventory directly from their listing. They are also given access to free tools like campaign building, embeddable maps, and invoicing that make their inventory more accessible, discoverable, and easier for marketers to buy. OneScreen.ai invites OOH providers to claim or request their free listing and complete their profile.
For more than a year, the OneScreen.ai team has worked closely with hundreds of buyers, sellers, advisors, and facilitators in the OOH industry to ensure its platform and tools solve real-world problems. Based on collaborations and partnerships with dozens of OOH providers, the company has developed multiple solutions in sales enablement, inventory management, and invoicing.
“OneScreen.ai is an advocate for the OOH industry and a resource that allows my company to run more efficiently and effectively,” said David English, Vice President at AD-Trend Outdoor Advertising. “OneScreen.ai truly understands outdoor advertising, both how and why it works. I'd encourage any outdoor advertising company to have a conversation with them and learn how OneScreen.ai will help grow your business in a multitude of ways. They are at the forefront of changing the industry, and we love everything they are doing for companies like mine. The working relationship that Ad-Trend and I have with OneScreen.ai is irreplaceable."
"Before using OneScreen.ai, I used generic charting and graphing programs,” said Richard Kennedy, owner of Kennedy Outdoor. “But once I reached 40-50 billboard faces, it became tough to manage everything through manual processes and spreadsheets – not to mention the space and data it took up on my computer. OneScreen.ai has allowed me to put all of my inventory in one place, and it's all hosted through their online platform."

Sourcepoint, Horizon Media | July 19, 2022
Sourcepoint, the privacy compliance platform of record for the digital marketing ecosystem, has partnered with Horizon Media to provide their clients with access to Sourcepoint’s privacy measurement technology, Privacy Lens. Sourcepoint’s proprietary platform allows advertisers to ensure media quality by analyzing how media inventory suppliers comply with consumer privacy regulations like CCPA and GDPR.
Operating globally across a range of industries, Horizon Media needed to ensure that their clients’ budgets were being invested appropriately on websites that meet client standards for consumer privacy. By partnering with Sourcepoint to apply their Privacy Lens data to programmatic transactions, Horizon Media can continuously adapt to regional best practices dictated by legislation, and ensure the ongoing ethical use of consumer data. Platforms are embracing product solutions for privacy-safe targeting as well, as reflected in last month’s announcement of Sourcepoint’s integration with MediaMath.
Horizon Media plans to roll out Privacy Lens across the entirety of their programmatic practice as a unique method for managing and optimizing media. By setting data privacy parameters and evaluating inventory sources, Horizon Media can ensure its clients’ messages only appear in environments that are deemed privacy compliant, brand safe, and suitable. Since Horizon Media began working with Sourcepoint, they have applied Privacy Lens insights to their procurement optimization process, finding that:
30% of websites did not have an opt-out link present on the main page. This is one of the main requirements of CCPA, as well as for other impending US state privacy laws.
Donald Williams, EVP and CDO of Horizon Media said: “While it’s vital that our own business practices protect consumer privacy, it’s of equal importance that we help restore credibility to the programmatic marketplace by reassuring our clients that their ad dollars are being invested in privacy-safe environments. As we look towards 2023, with the changes coming to Chrome, and a new host of regulatory requirements coming into force, technology solutions like Sourcepoint’s Privacy Lens remain the best means for businesses to future-proof their approach to privacy.”
Ben Barokas, co-founder and CEO of Sourcepoint, adds: “The programmatic ecosystem is undergoing a rapid and much-needed transformation. Data practices that may have gone unnoticed a year ago are now scrutinized closely."
Ben Barokas, co-founder and CEO of Sourcepoint, adds: “The programmatic ecosystem is undergoing a rapid and much-needed transformation. Data practices that may have gone unnoticed a year ago are now scrutinized closely. In such a dynamic industry, it’s challenging to have proper visibility into the privacy practices of other players. Privacy Lens seeks to bring greater transparency and align incentives for greater privacy compliance. Working with Horizon Media is another important step towards establishing data ethics infrastructure that will ultimately improve experiences for consumers.”
Sourcepoint is the data privacy software company for the digital marketing ecosystem. It provides tools to protect consumer privacy, manage compliance and optimize revenue in a rapidly changing landscape. Founded by a team of digital advertising veterans, Sourcepoint has offices in New York, Berlin, London, and Paris. Learn more at www.sourcepoint.com
