SYDNEY, March 16, 2017 — Quantcast, a global leader in applying the power of live audiences to digital and mobile advertising, and inventory management platform SpotX, have formed a partnership to combine the power of Quantcast’s advanced modelling and targeting with SpotX’s access to premium video supply to propel their current video offering.
The partnership, effective globally, offers Quantcast access to SpotX’s network of premium publishers in Australia, New Zealand and twenty-seven other markets.
“More brands are seeing the value in programmatic and are starting to invest heavily in digital video. This partnership affords us access to premium video inventory while overlaying the smarts of our sophisticated data and decisioning,” said Quantcast ANZ Managing Director Andrew Double. “This increased scale will put us in a strong position to meet the market demand for programmatic video.”
Quantcast sees the average Australian web user on average about 400 times a month, through its Measure product, which collects and aggregates data from more than 100 million web destinations. This technology allows Quantcast to leverage sophisticated modelling and algorithms to power their digital advertising product, Advertise.
“Publishers are investing more into their own video inventory across premium sites and niche, targeted, web properties,” Double said. “This enables advertisers to be more granular in their targeting and generate strong branding results by applying the right mix of media targeting and data modelling.”
SpotX, which provides programmatic enablement and ad serving technology for video publishers around the world, said the agreement with Quantcast enables it to add even more data to the programmatic video advertising landscape.
“Programmatic video innovations have introduced explosive growth to video advertising, enabling buyers to manage complicated, cross-screen buys among targeted audiences,” said Christopher Blok, SpotX Country Manager, ANZ. “Our partnership with Quantcast helps us enhance the value of our publishers’ inventory, and provide advertisers with more effective and scalable targeting options.”
Quantcast works with the majority of Australia’s top 100 brands, powers advertising in 29 markets around the world, whilst delivering audience targeting accuracy at 32 percent higher than its competitors*.
