Roku, Inc. Key Developments
Roku, Inc. Announces Advanced Video Advertising and Measurement Solutions
Apr 30 15
Roku, Inc. announced ‘Roku Audience Solutions,’ a new suite of capabilities designed to help Roku channel publishers sell their video advertising more effectively, while creating new opportunities for advertisers to reach and engage users of the Roku streaming platform. The move is designed to serve the dramatic growth of ad-supported viewership on over-the-top (OTT) devices, like Roku players. A major component of the new initiative is the Roku Ad Framework, a new toolkit that integrates advanced video advertising functionality directly into the software development kit used by Roku publishers to develop streaming channels. Built to serve the ad sales needs of Roku publishers, the framework features IAB VAST processing, Innovid iRoll interactivity, and a new Roku ID for advertisers. Beginning this summer, Roku will also be the first OTT platform in the industry to feature Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings, enabling publishers and advertisers to transact on industry-standard Nielsen demographics. Approximately half of the most-watched 250 streaming channels on the Roku platform are ad-supported, led by channels like CBS All Access and CBSN. Beyond its technology enablement work, Roku is also helping to bring advertiser demand to Roku publishers, leveraging direct relationships it has built with advertisers looking to market to OTT audiences. Roku utilizes its rich first-party data, together with the new Roku Ad Framework to deliver targeted, interactive video campaigns on a cross-channel basis. Working with its publishers, Roku also facilitates custom-content integrations and sponsorships. Roku Channel publishers can leverage the Roku Ad Framework, including future enhancements such as Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings, through a simple upgrade of their channel.
