mediasmart Partners with Brave to Expand Connected TV Inventory

mediasmart has partnered with Brave to expand its Connected TV credentials to provide access to publishers including JadooLite and FilmRise.

The partnership offers mediasmart customers access to a marketplace where buyers can bid confidently on every impression across several formats – Display, Native and Video inventory, supporting both static and dynamic video (VPAID) in the latter, with a specific focus on gaming and entertainment apps.

Brave also enables the monitoring of traffic quality to protect buyers from non-human, fraudulent or incentivised traffic, thanks to its internal fraud detection tools and partnership with Protected Media, a cyber security company that focuses exclusively on ad fraud

“We are always looking to extend the amount of high quality inventory and formats we make available to our customers and we were particularly interested in getting more access to Connected TV. We are very pleased to have extended our offering by partnering with Brave” said Noelia Amoedo, CEO, mediasmart.

The new inventory is being provided to meet demand for increasingly popular mobile advertising formats from digital video advertisers who are turning to Connected TV to extend their audience reach.

The partnership is indicative of the current rapid growth of connected TV advertising in Europe. Recentstudies suggest the value of the European connected TV advertising market could reach €825m by 2020.

“Brave empowers publishers with its unique technology and innovative solutions”,  said Amir Sharer, CEO, Brave. “We are committed to corporate values like quality and transparency and to using unique placements and maximizing revenues. Brave is proud to have partnered with Mediasmart, a leader in the field of advanced mobile programmatic tools”
