Broadsign, the leading digital out-of-home (DOOH) marketing platform for media owners and Place Exchange, a true programmatic exchange for out-of-home and place-based media, announced an integration to enable digital buyers to transact DOOH programmatically as a simple add-on to existing digital media buys. The combined platforms enable DOOH media owners and advertisers, to utilise a single set of digital creative assets that can be easily adapted to suit a variety of digital, mobile and DOOH destinations.
“Broadsign has led the charge in digital out of home for many years, and has access to an incredibly robust global inventory of signage in some of the most highly trafficked locations in the world. We’re excited about the possibilities this integration brings to our vast network of digital media buyers,” said Dave Etherington, Chief Commercial Officer, Place Exchange.
Lightbox OOH Video Network (formerly Adspace) which owns and operates 4500 video screens with sound throughout premium retail centres, is one of the first media owners to leverage the integration between Place Exchange and Broadsign on the integration. The company has already benefited by tapping into previously unavailable digital campaigns for a number of consumer brands. “For Lightbox, the Place Exchange and Broadsign Reach integration further enables access to digital campaigns and incremental revenue streams. It makes it very easy for digital marketing teams to discover, and buy DOOH media alongside other channels,” said Peter Krieger, President and Chief Operating Officer, Lightbox.
“Place Exchange has taken a novel approach to adapting the programmatic digital workflow to DOOH and we are excited to partner with them to grow the programmatic DOOH market. This integration will allow digital buyers to easily extend their campaigns onto thousands of DOOH screens across the Reach network and media owners to access thousands of digital buyers around the world.” said Adam Green, SVP and General Manager, Broadsign Reach.
