Advertiser interest in over-the-top is picking up steam and dollars – but cross-platform measurement is lagging behind. Data and analytics company Samba TV hopes to speed the process with the acquisition Thursday of Amsterdam-based cross-device graph provider Screen6.
As the audience for video splits across devices and consumer viewing behavior shifts from linear TV to streaming video, the ability to understand, measure and deduplicate audiences has become critical for both advertisers and programmers. Samba TV, the leader in next-generation TV analytics, announced today it has acquired Screen6, the industry’s only real-time cross-device identity resolution platform.
Samba’s real-time TV viewership data combined with Screen6 technology for cross-device identification provides advertisers, publishers, and platforms immediate access to Samba’s suite of cross-screen measurement solutions to optimize reach and mitigate excess frequency of brand messages.
The topic of identity management has been brought to the fore in numerous guises in 2018: from omnichannel marketing, to GDPR, unique IDs, to navigating user identity and measurement through walled gardens. Keith Petri, CSO of Screen6, shares his views on what will constitute ‘identity’ in 2019 on ExchangeWire, along with other experts in the space.
Amsterdam-based Screen6, a provider of cross-device identity graphs, is out with a new solution that it says can help solve the problem of cookie matching — but without cookies. The Dutch company says its solution can work across a variety of devices, including Over-the-Top (OTT) TV and cookie-challenged mobile devices.
Screen6 laucnhes idSync to solve the match rate challenge and is built to drive better results than today’s server-side syncs. idSync is the only server-to-server solution that precisely matches identifiers between ad tech platforms and exchanges to resolve user identity across desktop, mobile, and cookieless environments such as OTT connected TV and the Internet of Things.
Screen6 announced the launch of idSync, a new data syncing technology that precisely matches IDs between multiple datasets offline. idSync is not reliant on traditional cookie syncing to connect datasets but instead operates independently between platforms to support device matching and ID resolution for optimal match rates.
The emergence of header bidding is further frustrating the efforts of independent ad tech with lower match rates caused by the move from client-side to server-side syncs. Adweek features Screen6’s idSync as the solution to obtain optimal match rates between clients and siloed datasets.

PulsePoint, the leading global authority in programmatic healthcare technology, has partnered with Screen6 to precisely identify which devices belong to the same user. This allows healthcare marketers to message and activate the patients and physicians they are looking for in privacy-compliant manner.
