Reticle Integrates with IRIS.TV

IRIS.TV, Reticle | October 05, 2021

Reticle, the leading Emotional AI for digital advertising, announced its integration with IRIS.TV, the leading video data platform. Marketers will now be able to use Reticle’s emotional data signals to contextually target relevant, brand-safe inventory across thousands of IRIS-enabled™ premium publishers on connected TV and video worldwide.

Reticle’s Emotional AI has a taxonomy of 19+ positive emotional signals, enabling advertisers to match the emotional tone of their ad with prospective advertising placements to enhance ad viewing experiences. With this partnership, Reticle’s leadership position in emotional targeting will now be applied to online video and CTV inventory through IRIS.TV’s video data platform.

“Supply transparency, brand safety, and genre targeting should be table stakes. Through our partnership with IRIS.TV, brands can now leverage Brand Optimal, video-level contextual data to ensure every dollar spent on premium OLV and CTV effectively activates against brand communications strategies, reinforces creative messaging, increases ad relevance, and maximizes media effectiveness,”

said Jonah Cait, VP of Product.

IRIS.TV simplifies the complexity and fragmentation of the video ecosystem across CTV and premium digital video, providing access, for the first time, to video-level data. Before IRIS.TV, contextual and brand-safety data for videos was only available by analyzing the text on a web page, and was an impossibility for CTV. Now, marketers can put every video in context to confidently buy CTV and premium video inventory based on video-level contextual and brand-safety analysis and according to the specific topical nature of every video, in concert with Reticle.

“We’re excited to welcome Reticle to our video data ecosystem, Reticle is the industry leader in emotional AI and offers an extremely unique solution for marketers seeking to align their brand with consumers at the right moment. Reticle customers can now unlock these capabilities across all IRIS-enabled online video and CTV inventory, which is a huge win for brands, publishers, and viewers...”

said Field Garthwaite, Co-Founder and CEO, IRIS.TV.

IRIS.TV unites thousands of potential integrations into a single ecosystem, bringing together publishers, data partners, ad servers, and SSPs into a platform that allows publishers’ video content to be analyzed and categorized into industry-accepted brand-safe and contextual segments that can be purchased by marketers through any DSP via direct, private marketplace, and open auction buying.

According to the Interactive Advertising Bureau, U.S. digital ad revenue grew by more than 20% last year, to $72.5 billion. Facebook and Google together accounted for the vast majority of that growth. In response, publishers have layered more advertisements onto their pages, but the continued reliance on advertising only highlights their vulnerabilities.

Musk Puts the Twitter Takeover On Hold

Twitter | May 17, 2022

Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, has put a halt on his acquisition of Twitter due to recent announcements from the company about the prevalence of spam and bot accounts on the platform. Nearly two weeks ago, Twitter released a report which stated that fake accounts on the platform made up less than 5 percent of daily users. The information lacked rigidity to support the claims, and it seemed flexible in its assessment, which became a turn-off for Musk.On this premise, Musk tweeted, "Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users" Twitter also hinted at taking this report with a pinch of salt, as it stated, "The actual number of false or spam accounts could be higher than we have estimated. We are continually seeking to improve our ability to estimate the total number of spam accounts" Musk claims himself as a "free speech absolutist and offered $44billion to takeover twitter on April 25th. Musk's purchase was expected to lead to a renewed focus on personal verification and a crackdown on bot accounts. To verify a user's identity on Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants them to go through a more rigorous process than simply providing an email or phone number. This would prevent the prevalence of spambots on the platform, and the authorities will be able to act on the violators of the speech laws. Twitter's stock was initially down more than 20% in pre-market trade following the announcement, but the stock regained slightly. In his second tweet, Musk stated that he is "still committed to acquisition" two hours after his first one.

Viamedia Introduces Parity ADS Platform for Simultaneous Linear and CTV

Viamedia | May 20, 2022

Viamedia, the leading fully-integrated independent cross-media local advertising company, announced the launch of its new Parity ADS Platform. It uses a transitional approach to amplify live streams for IP-delivered distribution by simultaneously inserting regionally targeted ads on linear streams to align with the local ads on traditional cable TV systems. "Our new Parity ADS Platform is one of the industry's first transitional approaches and introduces the immediate next step to achieving fully dynamic advertising, This presents an enormous opportunity for our MVPD partners around the country to essentially turn their linear inventory into connected TV (CTV) inventory, all while better serving their local communities, businesses and advertisers." David Solomon, President & CEO at Viamedia Through this platform, MVPDs are enabled to regionalize streaming distribution by inserting regionally targeted ads on linear streams which replicate the ads running on traditional SD and HD channels. It provides a CTV capability MVPDs that have already deployed a dynamic platform. It also extends its support to MVPDs migrating into a dynamic advertising model by serving identical ads across multiple platforms. It enables ad sales for an entire subscriber while safeguarding the existing revenue streams. Solomon added, “The industry is beginning to catch on to the benefits of a parity approach. As subscribers are transitioned to streaming, there's often not enough impressions to sell independently. By replicating the same ad on two platforms, MVPDs are able to optimize linear and CTV feeds for advertisers, maximizing inventory and ad sales during the migration. This system is specifically developed to drive greater demand and value for existing advertising inventory.” Viamedia’s high-class technology stack follows established IAB standards. It utilizes a standardized platform to enable integration with any streaming applications so that MVPDs are able to utilize the streaming app of their choice to increase digital advertising revenue, similar to CTV. The new platform complements Viamedia’s expanding portfolio of advanced advertising solutions including QTT, the company’s cloud-based patented solution. It bridges digital demand and linear TV advertising inventory. It is the first of its kind solution which can request and receive ads from programmatic digital ad exchanges to enable programmatic ad insertion in real-time or near real-time, depending on the publisher’s preference on linear cable, National Network or Broadcast television utilizing existing TV infrastructure.
