It’s Upfront season and time to give your traditional TV practices a makeover. Your coveted audiences have increased consumption on many screens, causing fragmentation across channels. Now, advertisers and media owners need to embrace data and technology to fill in the gaps across the TV ecosystem. Cross-screen measurement provides the holistic view of video investments needed for effective planning and optimization throughout the year. Cross-screen isn’t a trend, it’s a movement.

Yesterday’s strategies weren’t built for today’s media

Simply relying on ratings or siloed measurement strategies makes it nearly impossible for both advertisers and media owners to reach their TV advertising goals. There is no alternative other than to use data as the de facto bargaining chip; it’s the only trusted guide for decision-making and to ensure flexible terms that work for all sides. To maximize success during the Upfronts and beyond, identity, audiences, and measurement will be the three essential data-driven, cross-screen elements, regardless of which side of the table you are on.
