New Reporting System Leverages Partnerships With Leading Research Organizations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  BrightRoll, the leading video advertising network, today unveiled a new reporting suite that offers advertisers more meaningful ways to measure the ROI of their online video campaigns. The new suite of reports leverages the best measurement and analytics tools from research partners that include comScore, Nielsen, Vizu and InsightExpress.

"comScore measurement tools quantify the impact of online ad campaigns using relevant metrics that reflect actual consumer behavior," said Graham Mudd, VP of Search & Media at comScore. "Together BrightRoll and comScore will provide advertisers with a fact-based understanding of the reach, frequency and effectiveness of their campaigns with this new reporting tool."

"Our ad effectiveness platform allows advertisers to measure and optimize brand funnel metrics in real time, ensuring their spend creates brand lift," said Dan Beltramo, CEO of Vizu. "Partnering with BrightRoll allows us to jointly bring this insight to a new set of top-tier advertisers seeking to optimize the use of video in their advertising."

The new suite will include five products designed to help BrightRoll customers measure campaign success in the following key areas:

Awareness -- Measures the attitudinal impact of a campaign on brand awareness, message association, brand favorability, brand recall and purchase intent using InsightExpress surveys.

Impact -- Leverages Nielsen's NetEffect tool to measure the impact of online video ad exposure on offline consumer purchase behavior.

Validation -- Utilizes comScore's Campaign Essentials data to measure actual delivery on every campaign including reach, frequency, GRPs / TRPs and demographics of those exposed to the advertising.

Effectiveness -- Uses comScore's Action Lift product to quantify the lift for online behavior and engagement, including site visitation and engagement, share of voice and search behavior.

Optimization -- Measures brand funnel metrics in real time using Vizu's Ad Catalyst platform, allowing advertisers to monitor and optimize brand lift by creative, exposure frequency, and targeting segment.

"Traditional metrics just don't give a complete picture when it comes to understanding the ROI of online video," said Tod Sacerdoti, CEO of BrightRoll. "Our goal with this new suite and the research partnerships behind it is to provide the data and tools that will allow advertisers to measure the success of campaigns run on our network, while informing and optimizing future campaigns for maximum impact."
