Proximic by Comscore's Livestream Contextual Intelligence Technology
Proximic's new livestream contextual intelligence technology operates at the intersection of artificial intelligence and real-time content analysis. By taking in livestream video content from publishers and categorizing it in real-time against Proximic’s extensive taxonomy, including its proprietary ID-free Predictive Audience taxonomy, this technology enables publishers to offer dynamic ad placements that align seamlessly with the content being streamed.
Unlike traditional contextual categorization methods, this technology doesn't settle for static assessments. Instead, it evaluates video content second-by-second, providing a comprehensive understanding of the evolving narrative and enabling precise ad targeting during upcoming advertisement breaks. With over 350,000 granular sub-categories, including brand safety and suitability, ID-free Predictive Audience segments and ID-free demographics, Proximic's AI-powered solution ensures unparalleled accuracy and relevance in ad placements.
Addressing Industry Challenges
It’s common for publishers to struggle with monetizing livestreaming content effectively due to advertiser concerns about their ads appearing in contextually irrelevant or brand-unsafe placements.
Proximic's new livestream contextual intelligence technology addresses these challenges by empowering publishers to offer programmatically-driven ad placements with full contextual insights, all in real-time. Advertisers can now confidently engage with livestream content, knowing that their ads will align with their targeting guidelines and enhance rather than compromise their brand reputation.
One sector in particular that is poised to benefit from this technology is local and national livestream news media, in which publishers are challenged to both monetize and preserve critical journalism. By enabling publishers to enhance monetization of livestream news content, particularly in an election year in which the need for accessible, diverse news content is heightened, Proximic's solution aims to contribute to the sustainability of journalistic endeavors, reinforcing the vital role of journalism in society.
Looking Ahead: Cookie-free Monetization
