NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- AdSafe Media, the rating standard of online media, and AdMeld, the company that helps premium publishers maximize their ad revenues, today announced a partnership that integrates AdSafe's publisher content rating data into the billions of RTB auctions AdMeld processes for premium publishers each month. AdMeld will leverage data from AdSafe's Content Rating Platform to provide buyers with real time information regarding the brand safety of their ad placements. By giving buyers this added level of confidence before they bid, the companies aim to spur the adoption of RTB by premium brand advertisers.
Industry research has found that while RTB drives increased performance and efficiency in display advertising, some premium brand advertisers have been slow to leverage it, in part due to concerns about brand safety. Through this partnership, AdSafe and AdMeld seek to transform the RTB market by addressing the brand protection requirements of these advertisers in an innovative way. The agreement also has benefits for AdMeld's premium publisher clients.
"Maximizing publishers' ad revenue starts with increasing their access to premium demand," said Michael Barrett, CEO, AdMeld. "Our clients represent some of the highest-quality display inventory in the world, and through this partnership with AdSafe, RTB buyers will be able to bid on that inventory with a higher degree of confidence than ever. It's an exciting union of our two companies' technologies, and we're glad to be a part of it."
"At our core, AdSafe is a content rating data provider, and this partnership with AdMeld allows AdSafe's rating technology to be used across billions of impressions," said Kent Wakeford, President, AdSafe. "AdMeld is a leader in the RTB space and we are excited to partner with them to attract more brand advertisers to RTB and to drive AdSafe's mission of being the content rating standard of online media."
