OwnerIQ's New Pre-Roll Capability Targets In-market Shoppers

BOSTON --(Business Wire)--

OwnerIQ, the inventor of Path to Purchase Media, has announced the launch of its new pre-roll product, which will enable advertisers to target shoppers from specific premium retailers and other top e-commerce websites with pre-roll impressions as they browse the web.

OwnerIQ's unique targeting solutions enable advertisers to target online ad messages to consumers based on the products and brands that they are browsing on e-commerce and transactional websites. Early last year, the company launched its Retailer Branded Audience (News - Alert) product, a targeting solution comprised of the website audiences of specific premium retailers - giving brands a unique way to drive sell-through in their retail channel with their online ad dollars. Through its in-house demand-side platform, OPTMS, OwnerIQ is now able to combine pre-roll inventory with targeting data based on consumers' browsing behavior on their retail partners' websites.

OwnerIQ believes this will be a game changer for many of their brand advertisers that sell products through retail. "Sight, sound and motion is still one of the most effective methods to deliver a brand message to consumers," said OwnerIQ CEO and Cofounder Jay Habegger. "Today, brands that deploy video assets, whether through TV or digital, to support theirretail channel have limited targeting options. We are offering these brands a way to get their video ad in front of consumers who have explicitly identified themselves as a shopper of a specific retailer."

In addition to online video buyers, Nick Vallante, Media Director at Carat thinks these types of solutions will be attractive to TV buyers as well. "Brands spend millions of dollars on national and local TV advertising to support their retail channel," said Vallante. "While it is still an effective medium, it can be very expensive and have a notable percentage of waste due to its targeting limits. Solutions like OwnerIQ's pre-roll product are interesting because they can be a very efficient way to extend the reach of our TV campaigns against our retailers' customers, making it a good complement to our TV buys."

Habegger says that the company's OPTMS platform is integrated with the major video inventory platforms, which gives it access to approximately 90% of all pre-roll inventory available via RTB (real-time bidding) in the US and Canada.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
