~to be offered on “MarketOne®” DSP~

Tokyo, January 10, 2019 --- D.A.Consortium Inc. (DAC), Platform One Inc. (P1) and Hakuhodo DY Media Partners Inc. (Hakuhodo DY Media Partners) are pleased to announce that they have jointly developed Atma™ Actual TV Viewership Targeting, an ad delivery menu that utilizes TV viewership logs on Atma™(*1), a solution that maximizes TV commercial effect. This product will be available on MarketOne®(*2), a DSP provided by P1.

■ Background
In recent years, the way sei-katsu-sha (our term for consumers that encompasses all aspects of their lives) come into contact and behave with media is becoming increasingly diverse (*3). This has made comprehensive marketing methods that cross over different types of media more important. In particular, there is a need for a solution that can visualize the effect of TV ads by synergistically combining TV commercials, which convey messages to many sei-katsu-sha, with digital ads, which have fine-tuned targeted delivery. In September 2017, Hakuhodo DY Media Partners developed and began offering Atma™, a solution that maximizes TV commercial effect by utilizing TV viewership log data from data-acquisition-enabled Internet-connected televisions. In addition, DAC acquired a patent in June 2018 for a TV-synchronized digital content delivery system, which can be used for services that interactively deliver TV program-related information and ads based on TV audio signals.

■ Summary of Atma™ Actual TV Viewership Targeting
Atma™ Actual TV Viewership Targeting is a product developed by the three companies that links viewership log data of the 2.5 million Atma™ TVs nationwide with DAC’s DMP AudienceOne®(*5)and converts that data to enable ad delivery via MarketOne®.

For terrestrial real-time broadcasts, terrestrial time-shift broadcasts, and BS real-time broadcasts, ad agencies and advertisers can place ads that match TV viewership patterns by voluntarily selecting program category, such as sports program or dramas, segment category, such as viewership frequency, and other categories, such as ad delivery area, via the MarketOne® management screen. Furthermore, by bringing together data owned by AudienceOne® related to hobbies, interests and other attributes, ad agencies and advertisers can realize even finer-tuned approaches to their communication target.

The three companies will continue to actively develop and enhance solutions that create an environment for good communication between companies and sei-katsu-sha.
