Tapad — the company behind the cross-device identity resolution platform Tapad Graph — has partnered with the ad tech provider AcuityAds. The partnership joins together Tapad Graph’s identity resolution capabilities with AcuityAds’ cross-device data set, giving advertisers improved targeting capabilities with unduplicated reach across devices and CTV.
“The partnership will enhance AcuityAds’ existing cross-device solution, especially with respect to its cross-channel Connected TV offering,” according to the announcement.
Why we care
Giving marketers the ability to include CTV data within their identity resolution efforts is a major benefit for advertisers moving more of their video campaigns to the CTV space — a growing trend across the digital ad space. (Last year, the intelligence agency Magna forecasted CTV ad spend would reach $5 billion by 2020, growing 31% year-over-year.)
“Our integration with AcuityAds’ DSP should not only help marketers within North America optimize current cross-device campaign initiatives and performance, but also increase reach across additional digital screens long term,” said Tapad’s Senior Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships Chris Feo.
