With TV advertising frequency continuing to be a major issue
among marketers on new TV digital and connected platforms, Vizio Ads, the smart TV advertising selling division of the Vizio TV set manufacturer, has started a new media tool -- Universal Frequency
It will also measure the number of times an ad is exposed to each TV in a household across linear, connected TV, video-on-demand and OTT. Marketers can limit the number of times a Vizio Ads media buy reaches a device per day, week or month.
Universal Frequency Control will work with Vizio’s Inscape data business, streaming from its automated content-recognition technology.
eMarketer projects total ad revenue on connected TV to grow to $11 billion for 2021.
Travis Hockersmith, vice president, platform business at Vizio, stated: “This solves a major problem marketers face when diversifying and managing their reach to TV audiences.”
Last October, Vizio merged Inscape with Vizio Ads.
Vizio’s Inscape has a database of more than 16 million U.S. TVs. Vizio’s SmartCast platform has more than 200 free, ad-supported TV channels.
