Software platform Telaria and a consortium of Australian publishers, including Seven West Media, Network 10, SBS, Foxtel Media, Pedestrian Group and Daily Mail, have today announced the launch of a programmatic ‘Editorial Video Marketplace’.
The platform aims to simplify buyers’ access to premium content with extensive daytime audience reach and scale.
Editorial videos are viewed on the publishers’ owned and operated platforms and placed in high engagement environments in contrast to the quick browsing feed type design used by the social sites.
These videos are particularly effective for daytime reach because they are generally viewed at the beginning of the day and noon and serve as an effective compliment to a BVOD (broadcaster video on demand) evening buying strategy.
“This is an important collaboration between the leading publishers in the market,” said Telaria GM of Australia James Young.
“We are responding to feedback from buyers, and providing the scale that is comparable to the reach of the social platforms.
“The marketplaces will be tiered based on a benchmarking system to ensure quality and performance to drive the best outcomes for both buyers and sellers.
“The initiative also comes at the perfect time with the recent ACCC Digital Platforms Inquiry which has been critical of the social platforms’ impact on local journalism,” Young said.
Seven West Media head of programmatic sales and audiences Luke Smith said: “SWM is proud to be collaborating with the industry on this important initiative from our partners at Telaria.
“The demand from advertisers has been clear – that there is a need for quality video delivering high viewability and completion rates within brand safe editorial environments at scale.
“It is important that the premium value and impact of editorial video is able to differentiate itself from other forms of short-form like social video.
“This marketplace, available programmatically, will be a means to make that easily accessible for buyers and advertisers at scale.”
Cadreon head of partnerships Flaminia Sapori added: “It’s a breath of fresh air for an industry where multiple players have come together to create a platform for premium short-form video in response to buyer feedback.
“It’s encouraging to finally start seeing publishers working collaboratively to provide alternative independent options in this space — creating ease of access, and most importantly, a new narrative for editorial video, giving it the credit it deserves, and perhaps start influencing more social budgets being redirected to new premium ecosystems.”
Telaria and the consortium of publishers are also working with the IAB to encourage and achieve industry wide adoption of this initiative through data implementation and research studies.
