StarHub Partners with Nielsen Holdings N.V. to Launch StarHub SmarTAM in Singapore

StarHub has partnered with Nielsen Holdings N.V. to launch StarHub SmarTAM, a television audience measurement system using return path data, or RPD, technology, in Singapore. StarHub has also commissioned Nielsen to support the subscription and sales of SmarTAM data. Harvesting RPD from StarHub's two-way digital set-top boxes in 545,000 homes and applying Nielsen's proprietary research for TV viewership measurement, StarHub SmarTAM offers advertisers, advertising media buyers, and content providers granular insight into what StarHub TV households and individuals are watching. The TV audience measurement system tracks both real-time and time-shift viewing of TV content and advertising spots across more than 200 StarHub TV channels. StarHub SmarTAM has the ability to provide highly accurate and dynamic audience segmentation, track specific media consumption habits and facilitate advertising campaign retargeting beyond TV in real-time. These insights can help advertisers and content partners make better informed decisions about creating and scheduling content or advertising campaigns effectively. It also allows the pay TV operator to perform day-to-day monitoring and planning of its channels and programmes as well as creating relevant pay TV packages.

Mobee Announces Collaboration with Nielsen for the Development of New Smart Phone Application

Mobee announced a collaboration with Nielsen. Together, Nielsen and Mobee are bringing innovation to the consumer insights marketplace with the development of a new smart phone application. Created in the form of an easy-to-use mobile Product Diary, this application captures consumer habits and product usage behaviors in real time.

The smart phone application is built on Mobee's enterprise ready cloud based architecture with intuitive SaaS solution-driven features including smart text and contextual text to capture in-depth, structured and accurate consumption data from participating users. The application seamlessly guides panelists through each consumption occasion using fun, visual cues with an intuitive design hierarchy to simplify navigation.
