Title: (EN) Targeting TV advertising slots based on consumer online behavior
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

Within an advertising buying platform, advertising buyers are able to direct advertising content to TV/OTT/VOD inventory that matches targeted market segments. The advertising buyers select from a list of available market segments, and the system pairs the market segments to an anonymous dataset of media consumers (using a database of hashed online IDs). The dataset of hashed online IDs is then mapped to external OEM IDs (such as from a Smart TV) via the functions of a hashed identity mapping method. This permits the advertiser to target advertising content to a population of TV viewers. Also described herein are methods of bidding on programmatic TV content.
