VideoHub first to be granted MRC accreditation specifically for video viewability

MRC accredits VideoHub’s methodology for measuring if video ads are viewable on a screen, and for four other related metrics

New York, NY — May 20, 2013 — Tremor Video, Inc., today announced that its proprietary technology, VideoHub, has been granted accreditation by the Media Rating Council (MRC) for five metrics that help brand marketers, media agencies, and publishers measure the accuracy and effectiveness of digital video advertising. The five newly accredited VideoHub metrics are: Average Viewability Percentage; Engagement; Clicks; Served Digital Video Impressions; and Unique Cookies. VideoHub is the first ad-tech system to receive MRC accreditation specifically for digital video viewability.

MRC is an independent non-profit industry organization whose primary mission is to ensure valid, reliable, and effective audience-measurement services. MRC accreditation certifies that VideoHub’s procedures and accredited metrics adhere to the MRC’s Minimum Standards for Ratings Research and to applicable industry-accepted measurement guidelines issued by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB).

We are thrilled to be the first organization to be accredited by the MRC specifically for measuring video viewability, which is an essential metric for brand marketers, media agencies, and publishers,” said Anthony Risicato, general manager of  VideoHub. “Knowing if a video ad is actually viewable is a critical step to measuring campaign performance. Complement that with our accredited measurements for engagement, unique cookies, served digital video impressions, and clicks, and we are well on our way to providing a common baseline that marketers need for measuring the effectiveness and success of their video ad strategies and overall brand health.”

George W. Ivie, executive director and CEO of the MRC, stated, “We congratulate Tremor Video for earning accreditation of VideoHub’s Served Digital Video Impressions, Clicks, Unique Cookies, Engagement, and Average Viewability Percentage metrics.  As the industry moves closer to transacting on viewability-related measurements, accredited services such as VideoHub assume an even more important role in helping buyers and sellers understand campaign performance effectiveness.”

Why start-ups should strive to turn innovation into investment

No one starts a start-up to stay a start-up, but the step between innovation and investment is the undoing of many promising emerging businesses, especially in the tech landscape. I've been in the business for 18 years, investing time (and more!) in up-and-coming businesses and I've seen start-ups make it big and many more fall by the wayside, and I've seen recurrent themes in both.

Problem solving is at the root of successful start-up businesses, but I think too many companies fail because they are solving the wrong problems - they expect the world to change everything it does for one new widget. The key to longevity is integration, slotting innovation in to existing workflows. It's called 'mental plasticity' - the ability to be flexible enough to know if you have to change to be what the market really needs.

For me, this means wrapping yourself around the clients' problems and that's how VideoHub's eQ™ system came about. We applied a system to an existing transaction - that between media buyer and publisher - and created a way to gauge value for brands. The eQ score looks at where a video ad is on the page, the size of a player and the length of time that someone watches, applying a score between 0-100 to help brands understand if consumers are seeing their marketing messages in a quality environment. We were responding to a genuine need for quality testing in the industry and filled a useful gap in the market.

VideoHub Launches New Quality Score for Video Advertising

Patent-pending eQ™ score provides a baseline for marketers and publishers wanting to assess the value of video advertising

Phoenix and New York−February 25, 2013−VideoHub, the enterprise division of Tremor Video, Inc., today is launching a new quality score for video advertising during the Interactive Advertising Bureau Annual Leadership Meeting. The IAB ALM is taking place from February 24 to February 26 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix.

VideoHub's eQ score is a patent-pending formula to determine the potential of every impression in a video ad campaign to grab and keep people's attention. eQ is the first scoring method of its kind for video ad placements. No other measurement tool on the market for video advertising weighs the three criteria that eQ score does: viewability throughout an ad's duration, player size, and ad completion rate. eQ score provides a baseline for agencies and publishers to assess quality versus cost.

Walker Media Adopts VideoHub Platform to Operate and Measure Video Ad Buys

Walker Is First U.K. Media Agency to Adopt U.S.-Based Digital Video Ad Platform

LONDON and NEW YORK, NY - (Marketwire - Dec 19, 2012) - London-based Walker Media, an offline and online media-planning and buying agency serving some of the U.K.'s most iconic brands, has agreed to license VideoHub for Advertisers to inform and optimize its media campaigns.

VideoHub -- a division of Tremor Video Inc. -- is a platform that media agencies use to buy, measure, verify and analyze video advertising campaigns. Walker Media will use the platform to operate all of its video ad buys and measure performance. While this marks the first U.K. media-agency deal for VideoHub, U.K. advertisers using Tremor Video to buy media have been benefiting from VideoHub analytics since the platform was launched last year.

VideoHub is the first video ad platform to have integrated Nielsen's Online Campaign Ratings, which give media planners and buyers a consistent measurement metric for digital and traditional media. Nielsen launched OCR in the U.K. in October.

The incorporation of data from Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings into VideoHub marries the standard GRP metric used in TV advertising to online video performance. The collaboration gives advertisers a single metric for their gross reach -- the total number of people exposed to an ad -- and effective reach -- more granular insight into the quality of the ad exposure and performance across screens. Now, marketers can understand the factors directly driving performance against a given audience.
