The Company's digital video advertising solutions are purpose-built for brand advertisers, advertising agencies and digital media property owners. Through a platform of embedded software, data science, machine-learning algorithms and programmatic tools the Company delivers television (TV)-scale video advertising campaigns to brand-receptive digital audiences. It aggregates its audiences across a range of Internet-connected devices, which include personal computers, smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, game consoles and Internet-connected televisions, by providing global digital media property owners with software that monetizes their professionally produced content and applications with the Company's advertising campaigns. The Company embeds its YuMe Audience Aware Software Development Kits (YuMe SDKs) as part of online and mobile Websites and applications. The Company's YuMe SDKs enables delivery of video advertisements, advertisements and experiences built on video, interactivity and Web elements. Its YuMe SDKs collect data needed to drive its audience targeting and advertisement placement algorithms.
The Company's YuMe Placement Quality Index (PQI) is a set of scoring and targeting algorithms that use data collected by its YuMe SDKs to enhance video advertising, targeting and performance across digital media properties. The algorithms analyze data from the YuMe SDKs, such as viewership, video completion rate, player size, player location, content relevancy, and campaign objectives. Its PQI is extensible to include other measures as it determines their relevancy. First party data collected directly by YuMe, second party data, such as publisher registration data, and third party data, such as anonymized cookie-based data licensed from data providers, can be used together or separately to inform the PQI algorithms.
The Company's Audience Amplifier is a data-driven audience measurement, modeling and segmentation engine that delivers relevant addressable audiences at scale. Audience Amplifier is a cross-platform predictive planning tool that finds addressable brand-receptive audiences across a fragmented ecosystem. While not cookie dependent, Audience Amplifier integrates learning and data from various sources, including PQI, its YuMe SDKs, its opt-in audience surveys, and second and third party data to model the cross-platform brand-receptive audience that meets specific advertiser objectives. Its platform delivers PQI targeted ad campaigns, measures effectiveness based on data supplied by the YuMe SDKs and feeds that effectiveness data to Audience Amplifier, which in turn optimizes the audience targeting model for those campaigns. Audience Amplifier correlates campaign performance with PQI information to create additional audience models.
The Company competes with Hulu, Google and Facebook.
