VideoAmp and VIZIO (NYSE: VZIO) announced a newly formed agreement in support of VideoAmp’s cross-screen measurement and currency solution. VideoAmp will maintain access and continue to use VIZIO’s Inscape Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) data from more than 18M opted-in VIZIO Smart TVs for planning, measurement and TV ad sales use cases. The newly extended relationship, which was previously slated to expire at the end of 2021, will now run through the end of 2025 with an option for VideoAmp to extend.

“We’ve had a longstanding relationship with VIZIO and are looking forward to what the future holds for our partnership.

​​VideoAmp’s continued use of VIZIO’s data will help support VideoAmp’s recently announced currency pilots with five of the six major advertising holding companies, along with their newly announced currency partnership with ViacomCBS. With adoption across both the buy- and sell-side, VideoAmp’s measurement capabilities are now considered one of the front-runners for an industry-wide cross-screen currency option.

"VideoAmp’s continued use of VIZIO’s Inscape viewership data will help support VideoAmp’s recently announced currency plans, VIZIO's Inscape continues to help accelerate cross-screen currency options with our best-in-class data set.”
