VMO has unveiled DART 2.0 – Australia and New Zealand’s most intelligent out of home audience measurement system. DART (Digital outdoor Audience in Real Time), anonymously tracks over 2 million Australians and measures those viewing content across VMO’s 8,000 digital screens.
In real time, it reports on; age, gender, when the audience viewed and how many people viewed across an advertiser’s campaign period.
B&T has even given it a crack, using it at our Awards on Friday and finding some fascinating information on our guests for the evening.
Anthony Deeble VMO’s managing director, said, “We’re incredibly proud of how we’ve advanced DART. The evolution has meant that the outdoor industry has been able to completely move away from dated and subjective OOH measures.
“The more prized metric – viewer engagement – provides agencies and marketers with more meaningful data than ever before.”
The software, using global best practice in facial recognition, has been trained through machine learning computers to map facial features that then predict age and gender. It has been learning since inception in 2014 and now reports on demographics with even greater precision.
DART 2.0 offers insights on engagement across 18 demographic profiles. DART 2.0 is so intelligent it can identify facial features such as glasses, beards and moustaches and can even report on viewers moods. Initially launched by VMO in 2014, DART was the very first system to use audience measurement via an Audience Measurement Device (AMD) for real time reporting purposes.
Building on early breakthroughs DART has transformed outdoor reporting providing more insights and analytics of real time audience viewing habits.

The advancements of DART 2.0 coupled with VMO’s dynamic ad serving system, has enabled VMO to deliver content programmatically based on live audience insights. Rather than booking inventory weekly or monthly.
Deeble added, “Using DART 2.0 to deliver content dynamically to the right audience at the right time is a giant leap in effectively targeting audiences in out of home environments. The benefit to the advertiser is simple; less wastage.”
There are currently 8,500 screens across VMO’s trans-Tasman network a figure set to rise to over 10,000 in 2017. This growth will see VMO uniquely reach over 50 per cent of the Australian population.
“Our ultimate objective is to give brands more meaningful insights and greater accountability on audience. VMO is proud to lead when it comes to innovation in audience engagement and technology that delivers results for clients” added Deeble.
DART is available across VMO Shop, VMO On-the-Go and VMO Work networks and is currently being rolled out across the VMO Active network.
