Puts Patent for Surfacing Video Based on Social Aggregation to Work
NEW YORK, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VideoNuze - Beachfront Media, the video technology company, has launched TruTraffic, a toolset to help video advertisers and publishers provide unprecedented transparency surrounding video engagement, authentic viewership and advertising performance. The company plans to utilize its patented social search technology, in use since 2007*, to rank videos based on hundreds of thousands of social data points. Beachfront Media has applied this same technology to its TruTraffic dashboard to determine if video ad buys are going against real video watching traffic.
TruTraffic's proprietary algorithm gathers hundreds of social data points including shares, likes, commenting, tweets, and retweets to calculate social impact and presents this information through an easy to manage dashboard. This helps to prevent video ad fraud at the player level. TruTraffic then applies an overall score, viewability metrics, and video behavior ranking.
Additionally, Beachfront uses computer vision technology to capture advertising at the point of delivery, enabling advertisers to automate the ad verification process. Advertisers gain better visibility into their ad buys and are able to replace their manual advertising audits.
"Video ad fraud is a problem, that we as an industry, need to address as it affects every aspect of the video ecosystem," said Frank Sinton, CEO of Beachfront Media. "At Beachfront, we are dedicated to providing advertisers with something beyond viewability - viewability plus something that measures true engagement with the content that they are advertising against."
Beachfront Media is now accepting applications for a limited beta program. Interested parties should go to trutrafficbeta.com to apply.
