AP Provides its MVPD Partners with an End-to-End 4-Screen Addressable Solution to Maximize Ad Sales Revenue &
Increase TV Inventory Profitability
6 Components to Our MVPD Solution:
1. Compiler Tech
AP's Compiler Tech is installed behind MVPD partners' firewalls and acts as a real-time DMP that can incorporate physical address, IP address and any number of additional data sets (e.g. STB viewing, consumer data by ad category, etc.). AP's compiler tech also leverages our patent-pending “Privacy-by-Design” approach to ensure all MVPD data always stays behind the MVPDs firewall.
2. Four-Screen Ad Planning & Activation Platform
AP's "FlightDeck™" Planning & Activation platform makes it simple to plan, sell, activate and measure audience-based, data-fueled four-screen addressable campaigns. AP's platform enables partners to harness the power first and third party and media consumption data (i.e. time on screen for TV and digital) to create optimized four-screen media plans that can't be matched by key competitors. Furthermore, FlightDeck™ provides visibility to unsold inventory and enables ad sellers to drive profitability by tapping un-rated, long-tail TV inventory that effectively reaches a given target audience.
Create data-fueled, audience-based, addressable TV and digital plans based on key attributes (demographics, purchase history, etc.) overlaid with known media consumption data to optimize TV / digital media mix. Get audience counts within seconds to quickly run scenarios to optimize planning approach.
Put AP's powerful, iPad-based tool in the hands of your sales team. Sales personnel can prep for client calls and / or build a plan face-to-face with a client. Once a plan is scoped, a comprehensive four-screen sales presentation can be generated with the press of a button, including a direct comparison to competitive ad sellers.
Activate plans against deterministic household data, enabling targeting via known (not modeled) IP addresses, assuring 100% accuracy both home and away. AP's "FlightDeck™" Planning & Activation platform then pushes IO's to all appropriate platforms for implementation.
Measure the impact of campaigns via AP's Data Analytics Platform and apply both TV and digital audience impression data against off-line sales files to determine campaign ROI.
3. Digital DMA Interconnects Across AP's MVPD Partners
