Ad tech outfit FreeWheel and Comscore have teamed up to expand connected TV contextual targeting capabilities available through FreeWheel’s demand-side ad tech platform, Beeswax.

Media buyers using the Beeswax platform now have access to Comscore’s Predictive Audiences and CTV brand protection offering.

Beeswax clients are able to leverage Comscore’s taxonomy of attributes, which include Predictive Audiences, contextually driven audiences that cover all major industry verticals, bolstered by FreeWheel’s advanced technology, the companies said.

Beeswax users can customize settings based on their needs to ensure contextual relevancy and brand safety filters along with cookie-free audience targeting are applied according to the needs of each campaign, they said.

“This launch signifies a significant step forward for CTV advertising, as we continue to work alongside key industry partners to make programmatic CTV buying a more flexible, scalable and effective experience,” said Nicolas Mignot, VP Publisher, Sales & Strategy, International, FreeWheel.

“Comscore has the technology, profile data, and scale that Beeswax clients need to target their audiences within relevant content on premium CTV inventory.
