Given the breadth and depth of the BroadSign publisher network, which is now in excess of 130,000 screens worldwide, we are uniquely positioned to enable large scale DOOH audience reach programmatically. - Burr Smith, BroadSign CEO
NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
BroadSign International, LLC, the leading digital out-of home marketing platform, today announced programmatic buying access for more than 10,000 screens globally. This initial programmatic deployment enables access to 400 million impressions per month via DOOH screens located in healthcare, veterinarian and lifestyle locations, such as shopping malls or near sports complexes.
As part of the launch, BroadSign is also announcing integrations with several demand-side platforms (DSPs) and exchanges for its supply-side platform, BroadSign Serv SSP. These integrations will enable programmatic and digital media buyers to purchase DOOH inventory from within popular digital ad platforms.
DOOH: Ideal complement to online and mobile
For digital media buyers who wish to augment their existing online and mobile campaigns with premium, high-impact DOOH locations, BroadSign’s DOOH marketing platform opens up an entirely new medium and revenue stream.
Digital out-of home advertising is expected to grow at 13.3% CAGR to represent $19 billion in annual advertising spend by 2019. “Given the breadth and depth of the BroadSign publisher network, which is now in excess of 130,000 screens worldwide, we are uniquely positioned to enable large scale DOOH audience reach programmatically,” said Burr Smith, BroadSign CEO. “We are excited to deliver this initial audience package to digital media buyers who previously may not have considered booking DOOH due to the lack of integration with their automated inventory and buying tools.”
BroadSign Health and Lifestyle Audience
The BroadSign Health and Lifestyle Audience Package, the first of many audience segments to become available, enables advertisers to reach more than 400 million impressions per month and is customizable by point of interest, DMA, time of day, and a number of other demographic variables. US specialty locations include:
- Medical clinics, dental offices and pharmacies
- Pet care and veterinarian clinics
- Retail stores and shopping malls
- Business and leisure travelers
- Daily commuters
- Entertainment and sporting events
Direct access to DOOH media via DSPs and exchanges
Through integrations with popular DSPs and exchanges, programmatic media buyers will be able to transact DOOH media buys right from within their existing trading platforms. To facilitate this process, BroadSign is pleased to announce completed and in-process integrations with OutMoove, Platform 161, Rubicon Project, and Splicky.
Just as digital is transforming the OOH industry, programmatic buying will transform the way buyers and sellers transact DOOH inventory. “Rubicon Project is excited to provide its unparalleled marketplace capabilities to all of BroadSign's partners through this integration. Today's announcement is a step forward in Rubicon Project's mission to provide premium supply for all its buying partners,” said Chris Waterman, Head of DOOH at Rubicon Project.
