Cox Enterprises Inc. announced the launch of its latest technology investment, COMET (Cox Media Technology). COMET is a unified programmatic platform that connects buyers and sellers across all advertising channels, including desktop, mobile, video, and TV. The platform brings value and efficiency to the transaction of media, backed by Silicon Valley engineering and proprietary data from Cox's dozens of companies. COMET's programmatic platform leverages artificial intelligence and anti-fraud technology alongside datasets from Cox Automotive (Kelley Blue Book, Autotrader), Cox Communications, and Cox Media Group to provide buyers and sellers with tools that increase return on investment (ROI). The technology powers the transaction of media across all advertising channels and in various formats, such as display, pre-roll video and OTT.

COMET's on-going anti-fraud initiatives include real-time inventory quality checks for 100% of the impressions passing through the platform, managed both internally and by two independent verification services. COMET's Focal™ uses machine learning technology to simulate buy-side demand and test the performance of an impression in a live-market scenario. Additionally, COMET Radius™ fills in missing impression data points and layers on additional information to every impression passing through the platform.
