LOS ANGELES – Panache, the full solution for video ad sales, facilitation and reporting, announced the general availability of Panache Ad IQ™, real-time video ad effectiveness reporting for major online video publishers. Panache Ad IQ gives publishers a competitive edge by allowing them to command higher-value advertising through insightful data and analysis of ad creative, experience and performance.
“As more television programming is delivered via broadband, content publishers need advanced yet simplified ad effectiveness reporting solutions to increase ad sales and drive their online video publishing efforts to profitability,” said Steve Robinson, Panache’s president. “Panache Ad IQ’s robust reporting functionality coupled with our work flow facilitation as well as products and tools for a publisher’s direct sales efforts all provide a complete, end-to-end monetization solution for major publishers.”
Through intelligent, visually stunning and easy-to-understand analysis and reporting, Panache Ad IQ gives publishers deep insight into the rich, in-depth sets of data that the Panache platform collects. Panache Ad IQ captures all video player interaction, ad exposure, ad comparison and ad interaction data and correlates this information into easy-to-understand at-a-glance analysis. Publishers can deliver more meaningful reports beyond GRP in real time, knowing what ad experiences and creative works. This reporting allows publishers and their advertisers to improve the overall ad experience to better reach their target audiences.
“In today’s environment, with pressure to justify every dollar spent, ad effectiveness reporting is not simply a value-add for major programmers and media companies, but a requirement to build a profitable and sustainable video publishing business on the Web,” added Robinson.
According to the July 2009 data from comScore’s Video Metrix service, 158 million U.S. Internet users watched online video during the month, the largest audience ever recorded. Online video reached another all-time high in July with a total of 21.4 billion videos viewed during the month, firmly establishing digital video as a relevant and viable channel for advertising revenue.
Panache helps major media and entertainment companies increase revenues with advertising as they build Internet-distributed video into a profitable and sustainable business.
