Integration will allow advertisers to increase their addressable audience pool
NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES – February 6, 2019 – SpotX, a leading global video advertising and monetization platform, is integrating with The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution. This combined effort is an advanced solution to improve user match rates across the digital advertising ecosystem to increase the addressable audience pool. This is available at no cost to the digital advertising industry at large through The Trade Desk’s global cookie footprint.
Adoption of the free unified ID solution allows all parties across the supply chain (SSPs, DSPs, DMPs and data providers) to utilize The Trade Desk’s cookie footprint to increase their own cookie coverage across the global independent internet.
As audience-based advertising continues to become a priority for marketers, many media buyers are looking for ways to efficiently reach their intended audience for maximum ROI.
“Unified ID is one of the clear leaders in web-based identity and will help advertisers more accurately get in front of that coveted addressable audience while increasing their overall reach and ultimately driving revenue, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with The Trade Desk on this initiative,” said Kelly McMahon, SVP of global demand operations at SpotX. “The scale of The Trade Desk’s global cookie footprint made it a priority for SpotX to participate, and we’re excited to be among the first video SSPs to optimize this technology.”
“SpotX is an integral player in the digital video and OTT supply landscape and we are proud that they have adopted the unified ID solution,” said Tim Sims, SVP of Inventory Partnerships, The Trade Desk. “The continued implementation of the unified ID solution by many in the industry demonstrates our shared desire to fix this very solvable problem, and create a better ad experience for everyone.”
