DISPLAY ADVERTISING, MOBILE ADVERTISING
Magnite | January 13, 2023
Brightcove Inc., the world's most reliable streaming technology business, announced a strategic partnership with Magnite, the world's most prominent independent sell-side advertising platform. Magnite will enable advertising for all Brightcove clients, growing fill and delivery to accelerate customer revenue. Brightcove will also combine the SpringServe ad server to provide publishers with more visibility, transparency, and control over the available ad supply.
Brightcove has thousands of clients worldwide and has always supported standards-based interfaces with ad servers and supply-side platforms (SSPs). After inspecting data from billions of ad-supported play requests on its industry-leading server-side ad insertion technology, Brightcove identified a significant potential to assist clients in monetizing their unsold ad inventory.
Available directly across Brightcove, Magnite's SSP capabilities will allow Brightcove to generate income for these clients. In addition, integrating with the SpringServe ad server will give these clients a clear picture of available ad inventory and a strategic chance to monetize their video content more effectively.
CEO of Brightcove, Marc DeBevoise, said, "The needs of our large, global customer base are constantly evolving, and we are committed to evolving our solutions for them, including supporting our customers' efforts to monetize their video content."
Sean Buckley, CRO of Magnite, stated, "We're looking forward to working with the Brightcove team to bring turnkey monetization to its high-quality video streaming customers."
Magnite is the biggest independent sell-side advertising platform in the world. Using its technology, publishers monetize their content across all devices and media, including online video, CTV, display, and audio. The world's top agencies and brands rely on the platform to access brand-safe, high-quality ad inventory and conduct billions of advertising transactions each month.

AD TECH AND MARTECH
GumGum | March 20, 2023
GumGum, a contextual first, global advertising platform, announced that starting immediately, all impressions running on GumGum’s ad exchange will now have enhanced brand safety protection through Verity™, GumGum’s proprietary and accredited contextual intelligence platform.
Verity is already integrated and applied across GumGum’s PMPs and media business. With this upgrade, GumGum becomes the first 100% brand-safe exchange and is the only direct marketplace that incorporates brand safety on every impression.
Advertisers typically add brand safety layers on their own through a pre-bid solution or their own safety filters. However, GumGum believes it is their responsibility to ensure supply-side safety by integrating an additional layer of protection in its exchange with Verity. Verity is the first independent ad tech platform to have been granted content-level accreditation by the Media Rating Council (MRC) for contextual analysis, brand safety, and suitability across the web and CTV. This accreditation was granted due to Verity’s sophistication and ability to analyse all content signals within a digital environment, including text, images, videos, and audio, to ensure ads are not served against extreme and unsafe content.
“We want brands and agencies to know that when they buy from GumGum’s ad exchange, they can always rely on brand safety and suitability protection, whether that’s through our exchange or PMP activity. Buyers can be assured that every ad we serve has been verified by Verity, creating a safe ad environment against extreme content,” said Adam Schenkel, EVP of global platform strategy & operations at GumGum. “Further, we want publishers to feel confident that we are an additional layer of support in ensuring their content is driving the greatest monetisation from our platform while protecting against brand safety violations.”
In addition to standard display and video placements from top publishers, GumGum’s ad exchange quickly unlocks exclusive inventory using standard formats that are cost-efficient and can be easily scaled through GumGum’s DSP partners, such as The Trade Desk, Xandr, and Google Display & Video 360. Any media buyer has the ability to access unique, high-performing inventory that is exclusive to GumGum through a DSP without a managed deal or campaign by GumGum account teams. The exchange is one of the industry's highest concentrations of direct-to-publisher integrations, enabling the company to provide the most direct route to premium, high-quality inventory for media buyers.
“Every brand has its own suitability thresholds but safety is more black and white. If we have the capability to remove unsafe inventory that advertisers don’t want to advertise against from the onset, why wouldn’t we do that?” said Phil Schraeder, CEO of GumGum. “We see a tremendous growth opportunity with our ad exchange and adding Verity to every ad impression is just one of many exciting things we will be doing with the exchange this year.”
This solution offers higher-quality ads and increased scale across thousands of premium publisher sites that are third-party verified. To ensure quality inventory at scale and an efficient supply chain, GumGum has integrated MediaGuard by HUMAN into the exchange to remove nonhuman and fraud traffic. In addition, GumGum is integrated with NewsGuard who deploy real journalists to fact-check news publications to ensure content accuracy, reliability, and access to high-performing inventory. With a focus on inclusivity, the exchange will also allow advertisers to maximise their KPIs by targeting audiences through customised segments such as multicultural and sustainability with standard and nonstandard ad formats.
GumGum will continue to develop partnerships to grow the scale of the exchange in 2023 and beyond. With a new team dedicated to the innovation and growth of the exchange, GumGum continues to commit to evolving the marketplace to suit the needs of the digital advertising industry.
GumGum’s exchange is available now and accessible to agencies, advertisers and publishers across the globe interested in brand-safe and premium ad inventory.
GumGum is a contextual-first global digital advertising platform that captures people’s attention, without the use of personal data. We believe that a digital advertising ecosystem based on understanding a consumer’s active frame of mind rather than behaviour builds a more equitable and safer future for consumers, publishers and advertisers alike. Founded in 2008, GumGum is headquartered in Santa Monica, California and operates in 19 markets worldwide.
