The Triton Audio Marketplace offers access to the largest single pool of audio audiences, with more than 100 billion audio impressions per month, allowing marketers and agencies to transact on all forms of audio inventory and access unmatched, sophisticated measurement and targeting tools across a range of audiences, from mass reach demographics to narrower, more precise targets. Basis Technologies further empowers advertisers by providing access to audience segments that are normalized in digital to broadcast spot radio, as well as real-time optimization of broadcast campaigns.

Hivestack, a company that makes programmatic digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising technology, has teamed up with Focus Media Hong Kong to give local and international buyers access to Focus Media's network of digital panels and billboards.
The network has Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok, and Kwun Tong, as well as Hong Kong's first digital screen that can be turned on programmatically with 3D creative executions. It is the first and only one in Hong Kong. With the help of Hivestack's programmatic DOOH advertising technology, advertisers will be able to reach a wider audience and send more targeted and personalized ads. It also marks a significant step towards the digital transformation of Hong Kong's out-of-home advertising industry.
Troy Yang, MD of North Asia at Hivestack, said, "Focus Media Hong Kong helps to expand the variety of DOOH screens for media buyers." He also said, “The whole team at Hivestack is thrilled to partner with Focus Media in Hong Kong, which will now exclusively use the Hivestack SSP to drive incremental revenue from our global network of advertisers."

Dotdash Meredith (DDM), the largest publisher in America, today launched D/Cipher, a groundbreaking ad targeting tool that makes intent-based targeting at scale a reality, without cookies. D/Cipher connects advertisers to consumers in key moments of intent – as they make decisions, take action, and pursue their passions across DDM's more than 40 iconic brands, on all devices and platforms. Critically, D/Cipher unlocks Apple (iOS) audiences that have been unreachable by advertising cookies for the past two years, estimated at more than 50% of U.S. digital users.
Developed and built by a world-class data science team based on billions of proprietary consumer interactions and content signals, D/Cipher identifies and harnesses consumer intent associated with every piece of DDM's expert-created, actionable, and brand-safe content. D/Cipher allows marketers to connect directly with consumers across all trusted DDM brands, like Allrecipes, PEOPLE, BHG, Byrdie, InStyle, Verywell, FOOD & WINE, Travel & Leisure, Southern Living, Verywell, The Spruce, and Investopedia. DDM brands help 30 million people each day, and D/Cipher gets smarter with each interaction.
"At DDM, our billions of historical consumer signals offer a unique window into how people make decisions and the intent behind their actions," said Joetta Gobell, PhD, SVP, Data Strategy and Insights at DDM. "D/Cipher uniquely translates user intent into targetable marketing segments so advertisers can reach the right person at the right time with the right message, at scale," she said.
As part of the launch, DDM is also announcing the new Dotdash Meredith Performance Guarantee. For marketers using D/Cipher Intent Targeting, DDM will guarantee a performance lift vs. cookie-based or other based audience-based targeting.
"The biggest problem with online advertising today is that cookies don't work and are going away," said Neil Vogel, CEO at DDM. "We are the only publisher able to combine iconic brands, scale, and intent-driven data to solve this. We can now target based on user needs and intent in a way that is markedly superior to cookie or audience-based targeting. And we guarantee it."
