Audience-based targeting has been second nature to advertisers for quite some time now, but publishers haven't been as diligent about providing audience data. As a result, publishers may be losing ad dollars, or at the very least, not fully capitalizing on the value of their brand.

Today, AOL Video has signed on as Videology's inaugural publisher platform to expand the potential scope of addressable audience ad market with unprecedented analytic and measurement capabilities. Videology, Inc., formerly known as TidalTV, Inc., today announced the launch of its sell-side platform that complements and mimics the platform capabilities currently offered to media agencies, solving the growing disconnect between video advertisers' buying preferences and digital publishers' audience data.

The VideologyAddressable Audience Platform (videologygroup.com) is a screen-agnostic video advertising technology that works to connect brands with consumers. Videology achieves this through mathematically-driven data analyses that allow them to target precise consumer segments-at scale-by demographics, psychographics, and behavioral segments. This precise targeting permits advertisers to extract increased value from every media impression, and allows our content partners to monetize their audience more effectively.

Working with Videology will vastly increase the audience data available, and AOL Video will gain insight into our total audience, as opposed to the small portion identifiable through a panel-based sampling. More granular audience data would not only allow more scalable audience analysis and targeting, but also greater insight into the consumer purchase cycle, or the ability to track ad exposure to online or offline sales which is so important to brand advertisers.
