SpotX brings MetriX measurement product to UK

Video ad platform SpotX has announced the UK launch of its SpotX MetriX cross-platform measurement solution.

SpotX MetriX, developed in partnership with market research company AudienceProject and TechEdge, a supplier of research and planning tools for linear and non linear TV consumption data, promises to offer brands and their agencies insights into growing OTT audiences.

The solution includes demographic, household and socio-economic data for audiences accessed via the SpotX platform and can be leveraged through both direct and programmatic executions.

MetriX also utilises AudienceProject’s integration into TechEdge and merges BARB TV panel data with AudienceProject’s online panel data. This, it says, enables advertisers to “understand the incremental reach to linear TV driven by their OTT video activations.”

Graeme Lynch, VP demand facilitation at SpotX said: “Universal measurement has long been the missing component in unlocking multi-channel advertising potential. OTT is growing enormously as audiences realise the benefits of watching TV in a more flexible, personalised way. However, for advertisers to support this growth, a solution was needed which shows how unique audiences behave across channels and platforms, especially linear TV. Our partnership with AudienceProject and TechEdge allows us to facilitate this level of reporting through our new solution, MetriX, while remaining privacy compliant.”

Henrik Lauritzen, CEO at AudienceProject said: “OTT holds great potential with strong quality content and a brand-safe environment, coupled with ease of access for consumers. We are excited to be providing our real-time cross-platform measurement solution to SpotX, helping them set a new standard for campaign measurement on OTT. Measurement is the key that will open the door to the exceptional opportunities offered to everyone by OTT.”
