New partnership will enable advertisers to add scale and simplicity to video campaigns in the ANZ region
Sydney, Australia – MediaMind, a division of DG (NASDAQ:DGIT), and the leading independent provider of integrated digital advertising solutions, today announced a strategic regional partnership with Adap.tv, the world’s leader in programmatic video advertising, that will provide greater efficiency to advertising partners in Australia and New Zealand.
The new agreement supports the integration of MediaMind’s video ad serving and campaign management capabilities into the Adap.tv Marketplace, providing media buyers with a single platform to deliver video ads across multiple screens.
“As our agency partners look to expand their in-stream video advertising buys, this new partnership deal brings them access to a major pool of video inventory at group buying rates,” said Carolyn Bollaci, Regional Vice President for ANZ of MediaMind.
Adap.tv will also become a member of MediaMind’s Strategic Partnership Program. This provides Adap.tv with access to MediaMind’s production team to enable Adap.tv to build custom rich media creative assets on a cost per project basis, among many other benefits.
Phil Duffield, Managing Director of Adap.tv in ANZ, says the partnership with MediaMind enhances the objective of simplifying the process of multi-channel delivery of video advertising. “Our programmatic approach to campaign development meets the needs of a market adapting to emerging channels. Now, working with MediaMind, our combined client base will find it easier to deploy that content, irrespective of the device or screen size.”

“Adap.tv’s sophistication in video also gives us more power to shift agencies beyond the easy TVC placements that are prevalent in this region, to trialling the more advanced, purpose-built in-stream video ads that we know deliver stronger results elsewhere in the world,” summarised Bollaci.
