Programmatic partnership with TripleLift to scale in-content advertising

 

Agreement is key to accelerating programmatic sales in the US and beyond

 

Mirriad, the leading in-content advertising and virtual product placement company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic agreement (the "Partnership") with TripleLift Inc. ("TripleLift"), which operates a supply-side platform ("SSP") for advanced ad formats that processes over one trillion monthly ad transactions across online video, connected television and other channels.

 

As part of the Partnership, TripleLift's SSP will facilitate automated selling of in-content inventory from Mirriad's growing number of supply partners into leading media buying platforms such as Google's DV360 and the Trade Desk. This will give advertisers and media buyers the ability to buy this inventory in their programmatic platform of choice.

 

The programmatic model is the pivot to scaling the in-content format as a new standard across the digital ad-buying ecosystem. Programmatic ad buying utilises algorithms and technology platforms to automate buying, placement and optimisation of digital media inventory on a massive scale, making the process more efficient, precise and expandable than the traditional 'manual' processes Mirriad has used to date, especially for broadcast TV inventory.

 

Together, the two companies aim to create a marketplace that includes content from leading entertainment media conglomerates as well as a wide range of diverse-owned and targeted content partners across a range of digital video formats, including connected TV ("CTV"), video on demand ("VOD"), and free ad-supported streaming ("FAST").

 

Mirriad and TripleLift will continue to monetise their unique services via the respective fees generated from inventory transactions.

 

Stephan Beringer, CEO at Mirriad, said: "It's exciting to take this next step on the path towards programmatic in-content advertising, which is a game changer for the industry and Mirriad revenues. This partnership establishes our connection to nearly all the world's leading demand-side platforms, offering advertisers an automated way to purchase in-content placements on their preferred platforms, targeting key audiences within Mirriad's expanding network of partners.

 

"Following recent agreements with US entertainment 'majors' and 'super majors', and the programmatic testing with partners and content distribution platforms over the last 18 months, we are a key step closer towards a 'plug-and-sell' proposition which will accelerate adoption and scaling. Working with TripleLift, a leading ad tech platform that is truly elevating digital advertising through high quality inventory, data, and smart targeting, means Mirriad can offer existing and new content partners an integrated programmatic solution.

 

"Mirriad's high-performing format will move to the centre of the programmatic ecosystem at a moment when advertisers are looking for more inventory to effectively reach mass audiences in the age of streaming. The ability to monetise new content from our entertainment partners now becomes much easier, beyond what was possible previously."
