What: Teads has announced a collaboration with Oracle Moat which will allow advertisers to measure the total viewable exposure time of ad impressions, and 100% viewability for all VCPM and CPCV.
Why it matters: The new integration coupled with Teads’ unique viewability pricing models (CPCV/vCPM) empowers buyers to select any custom billing point of viewability and transact on any viewability requirement, as verified by Moat.
Global media platform Teads has announced that it now offers advertisers the ability to measure the total viewable exposure time of each ad impression, as well as 100% viewability for all VCPM (viewable CPM) and CPCV (cost per completed view) buys. The integration is in collaboration with Oracle Data Cloud’s Moat services.
By leveraging Teads’ predictive AI technology, advertisers will be able to seamlessly transact on the selected billing event in order to achieve the lowest cost per viewable impression. Teads will report all KPIs at the billing event providing clients with a much clearer understanding of the performance of their campaign at that given duration.
“We are delighted to support this initiative with Teads, as we believe this is a transparent and open way to enable media buyers to purchase only the impressions that count,” says Mark Kopera, Head of Product for Moat at Oracle Data Cloud. “Our integration is also equipped to support the new IAB API frameworks specification which allows for any video tag to be accepted for video ad playback and measurement, including backwards compatible versions of VAST, VPAID, OM SDK for Mobile Apps and OM for Web Video.”
Through this advancement, Teads will auction off 100 percent viewable impressions at any viewability requirement set by an advertiser, while the rest of impressions not achieving the selected viewability benchmark will be offered as free media. Teads developed this solution to service a growing industry need for a new currency that can transact on viewability. The industry currently optimizes towards viewability on total impressions (CPM) which is a very manual process and leaves the buyer to rely on a viewability score. Teads is removing this friction by moving away from the viewability score across total impressions and to a more important metric which is the cost per viewable impression.
“ASICS has seen very strong viewability with Teads thus far, and we’re looking forward to using the new vCPM buying model, which should guarantee an even greater level of performance for our campaigns,” says Philip Bryant, Sr. Marketing Manager, ASICS North America.
“Advertisers need innovative pricing models to transact on viewability. We are taking the lead on this front because it doesn’t make sense for buyers to have to pay for non-viewable impressions,” says Bertrand Quesada, CEO at Teads. “With the combination of our unique pricing models, Teads AI, and our new Moat integration, we are empowering advertisers with information on exactly what they are paying for, in a cost-effective manner.”
