Genesis Media and Moat Partner to Deliver Attention Analytics and Viewability in Video

Attention Focused Ad Platform Raises the Bar for Viewability Measurement

NEW YORK – Genesis Media, creators of the industry’s first attention platform, today announced its partnership with Moat, a leading MRC-accredited brand intelligence and analytics company. Through the partnership, Genesis Media’s current and future video ad products will use Moat’s tools to measure and maintain ad viewability, as well as other attention metrics.

Genesis Media is joining a premiere group of innovative marketers, publishers, and platforms using Moat’s Video Analytics solution. This partnership showcases Genesis Attention Platform’s (G·A·P) focus on driving attention and maintaining viewability. In fact, Genesis Media has emerged as a market leader with its ad products consistently performing significantly higher than the industry average across Moat’s viewability scores:

  • In-View Time: Genesis Media ads 25 of 30 seconds watched in view on average (84% of each video), 29% above Moat’s Q2 benchmark.*
  • Completion Quality: 83% of video completions are audible and visible upon completion, over 2 times Moat’s Q2 benchmark of 41%.*
  • Audible and Visible On Complete (AVOC): 69% of all started views are audible and visible upon completion, 2.25 times greater than Moat’s Q2 benchmark of 31%.*
