Boston, June 19, 2012 -- Visible Measures, the analytics and advertising platform for social video, today announced that Mindshare, the global media network, will deploy the company's patented video platform across Mindshare's CORE, a first-of-its-kind user-centric and open source data-driven marketing intelligence platform that empowers both analysts and non-technical users to make informed marketing spend, audience targeting, and creative optimization decisions across all touch points in real-time. By leveraging Visible Measures' exclusive video dataset, Mindshare will be able to monitor online and social digital video activity, including paid, viral sharing, and derivative content intelligence.
"Mindshare is one of the preeminent media agencies in the world and a true innovator in video advertising," said Visible Measures founder and CEO Brian Shin. "With its data-centric, real-time approach focusing on consumer actions and insight, CORE will change the way media buying works today. We're excited to be powering this industry shift by providing paid, owned, and earned media measurement to CORE."
"By cherry picking best-in-class technology and data providers like Visible Measures, we've been able to create an enviable solution with CORE that delivers institutional marketing intelligence across all aspects of the marketing ecosystem, be they above or below-the-line, product, or consumer-centric," said Steve Plimsoll, CTO Mindshare Worldwide and CORE project leader. "With its industry-leading video dataset and MRC-accredited video metrics across paid, owned, and earned media performance, Visible Measures is the ideal partner for CORE."
With Visible Measures, Mindshare's CORE has access to the performance of over 8,600 video campaigns to analyze and compare with in-flight, upcoming, and historical campaigns. Each of these campaigns has been measured by MRC-accredited metrics like True Reach™, the first metric to track performance across paid, owned, and earned media. CORE users will also have access to competitive campaign performance across paid, owned, and earned media.
The Visible Measures video dataset powering CORE is the same dataset that powers the company's choice-based video ad network, Viewable Media.
