Marketing Operations, BrightRoll. "Our clients rely on Nielsen Online
Campaign Ratings for independent, third party measurement and we are
pleased to be working with Nielsen as they bring this important mobile
offering to market."
"Cross-screen audience measurement is critical for advertisers to
leverage the trend of increasing mobile video consumption," said Jason
Lopatecki, Chie Strategy Officer, TubeMogul (News - Alert). "We're excited to be at
the forefront as a beta participant for the Nielsen Online Campaign
Ratings mobile offering."
The expansion of Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings to measure mobile
devices will use a similar approach to Nielsen's Media Rating
Council-accredited methodology* for measuring computer and tablet
browsers, which combines Nielsen's industry-leading Cross-Platform Homes
panel with data from third-party providers, to measure all ads,
including video and display. In addition to mobile browsers, this
release will explicitly measure in-app ads for the iOS and Android (News - Alert) app
eco-system. Other clients, including
ABC, have participated in earlier technical trials.
"2014 is a big year for Nielsen and the broader advertising industry.
With true cross-platform measurement across content and advertising,
publishers will be one step closer to unlocking the true value of their
inventory and advertisers will know the real extent of their campaign
reach," said Megan Clarken, EVP, Global Product Leadership. "BrightRoll
and TubeMogul are great strategic allies; we appreciate their
participation in our test program."
Following a number of strategic developments in 2014, including the
inclusion of mobile in Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings, Nielsen will be
able to measure linear and dynamic digital advertising across all
platforms. Specifically, in March, Nielsen expanded its content
measurement capabilities to include TV programming available online
through the launch of Nielsen Digital Program Ratings. The 2014-2015 TV
season will mark the first time that mobile video viewing is folded into
C3 (News - Alert), the rating used by the industry to buy and sell TV advertising.
