The CTV gold rush

August 10, 2023

Not all CTV is created equal. our expert guests dig deep into ctv media inventory, transparency, and performance.

TV consumption via Connected Television exploded in 2020 and continues to grow. This has created a “gold rush” in the CTV landscape – a wealth of opportunity across supply and data which has led to an increase in partners and buying routes. But just like in the 1800s, not everything that glitters is gold. With low transparency, it is often difficult for marketers to determine the true value of their CTV investment–until it's too late.
