NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unruly, the award-winning global technology platform for social video advertising, today announced that it has launched the industry's first Dynamic Creative Optimization (DCO) functionality that will allow brands and their agencies to automatically deliver the most popular video content and build maximum brand engagement for every social video advertising campaign.

Unruly's new DCO technology has been fully integrated with the company's Social Video Player and proprietary MEME™ (Media Engagement & Measurement Engine) platform.  Once activated it will dramatically increase campaign performance for Unruly's clients by "intelligently" determining the most viewed video from among many and then optimizing delivery to users in real time. The selection is based on a unique set of algorithms that factor a wide variety of engagement parameters and specific campaign KPIs.

"With the launch of Dynamic Creative Optimization technology, Unruly again demonstrates that we are the clear leader in innovation and client service within the social video advertising category," said Art Zeidman, President, Unruly Americas.  "No other company in our space has Unruly's technology development team or big data resources, so when our customers told us they wanted this, we created it," he added.

Matthew Cooke, Co-Founder and CTO at Unruly, explained, "Dynamic Creative Optimization is already hugely successful in online display advertising; we're pleased to be bringing its dramatic impact on campaign performance data to social video advertising."

The product is currently available on an exclusive basis to select customers.
