Teads and TubeMogul Partner to Expand Advertisers’ Access to Premium Programmatic Video Inventory in the U.S. and Europe
New York, NY & Emeryville, CA – August 19, 2015 – Teads, the inventors of outstream video advertising and a global monetization platform for publishers, today announced a new partnership with TubeMogul (NASDAQ: TUBE), a leading enterprise software company for brand advertising, to increase advertisers’ access to Teads’ premium programmatic video inventory in the U.S. and Europe.
Through the partnership, TubeMogul clients can tap into Teads’ open exchange video and private marketplace inventory through Deal ID, an added functionality that matches individual buyers and sellers based on pre-negotiated criteria like pricing, ad placement, and ad format.
Teads’ premium video inventory spans over 500 top-tier publisher sites globally includingReuters, Forbes, The Washington Post, La Razón, DieWelt, II Sole 24 Ore, The Guardian, The Telegraph, O Globo and Le Monde. TubeMogul works with some of the largest brands in the world as well as the major advertising holding companies.
CEO of Teads, Bertrand Quesada comments, “Video advertising can be an extremely effective medium for advertisers and agencies looking to reach audiences with targeted and contextually relevant content on premium sites. Teads’ engaging, view-to-play video solutions such as our inRead format (see example here) are proven to dramatically increase advertising effectiveness and perceptions. Our partnership with TubeMogul will allow us to offer access to new premium video inventory at scale through programmatic channels.”
Keith Eadie, chief marketing officer, TubeMogul, said, “Teads’ outstream formats inject new, highly viewable inventory into the ecosystem. We’re excited to partner with them and offer advertisers access to an ad format that delivers on the viewability goal many buyers prioritize.”
Teads’ inRead is an outstream video advertising format developed for desktop and mobile devices. The inRead format places video advertising within the editorial content of a publisher site, positioning the video unit within two paragraphs of an article. When the user scrolls down and sees the video unit, inRead emerges and serves the video advertising. By sitting outside of the video player, inRead dramatically increases the amount of premium video advertising inventory available. See Nielsen and Teads recent ad effectiveness study here.
