San Francisco and Los Angeles Calif. -- July 18, 2018 -- Inscape, the leading provider of automated content recognition (ACR) data with glass-level insights from nearly nine million smart TVs announced a partnership with VideoAmp, the software and data solutions company powering the convergence of linear TV and digital advertising.
Inscape, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VIZIO and leading provider of automatic content recognition (ACR) technologies and cross-screen metrics, gives VideoAmp brands, agencies and TV programmers access to the largest single source of opt-in smart TV viewing data available in-market. VideoAmp matches TV viewing data with digital IDs in a privacy-compliant clean room to create VideoAmp Households. It then enables the data for use — both on its own software platforms and across other platforms — to support planning, activation and measurement use cases of all kinds, alongside traditional TV data.
“Audience viewing habits are constantly evolving. For marketers, and publishers, understanding what consumers are watching and when, is important -- all while ensuring that viewership data is captured in a way that protects consumer privacy. With Inscape, we get the most accurate, minute-by-minute smart TV viewing data available on the market,” said Jay Prasad, Chief Strategy Officer, VideoAmp.
The integration of Inscape ACR data builds on VideoAmp’s deep expertise in TV audience data processing, audience modeling, and predictive analytics leveraging both set-top box and ACR data.
“Integrating with VideoAmp enables us to provide access to the most accurate TV viewing data intelligence available, helping to reshape the way all future TV and cross-screen video campaigns are targeted, optimized and measured,” said Jodie McAfee, SVP of Sales and Marketing at Inscape.
