Partnership to enable syndicated and custom audience targeting across linear TV and CTV
NEW YORK, October 31, 2023 -- Cadent, the largest independent solutions provider for advanced TV advertising, and Proximic by Comscore, a division of Comscore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR) and leading provider of audience and content targeting solutions for programmatic activation, today announced a two-part partnership, beginning with the now live integration of Proximic by Comscore’s ID-based audience suite into Cadent Aperture Platform. The second phase will integrate Proximic by Comscore’s Predictive Audiences and content targeting tools into the Aperture Converged TV DSP.
This partnership combines the capabilities of Aperture Platform and Proximic by Comscore to provide enhanced ID-based and ID-free audience targeting across linear and advanced TV, including addressable TV and CTV viewership audiences. Through the joint solution, marketers will be able to plan, target, activate, and measure their campaigns through Aperture Platform, while following strict privacy guidelines, ensuring maximum scalability and cost efficiency.
“Cadent Aperture Platform is built to unify the fragmented data ecosystem of converged television, a challenge that any advertiser that needs to target across households and devices faces,” said Tony Yi, EVP, Business Development and GM, Platform Sales at Cadent. “By integrating Proximic by Comscore, we are enabling holistic targeting and measurement with their syndicated and custom audience segments.”
Aperture Platform offers an unparalleled depth of campaign coverage and performance, allowing advertisers to activate across the converged TV landscape.
