Improve Digital Signs TP Vision Philips As Smart TV Client

AMSTERDAM — Today, Improve Digital, the all-in-one video advertising platform for publishers, content providers and broadcasters, announces its partnership with TP Vision Philips, one of the world’s leading monitor and LCD TV manufacturers. Philips branded TV sets will offer video programmatic advertising campaigns on its smart TVs in the European market, powered by Improve Digital’s full-stack platform 360 Polaris.

This collaboration marks a new step forward for Philips, moving into the programmatic advertising space. Philips now offers a new channel for advertisers to send their high-quality messages to their targeted audiences, without interference of adblockers. Improve Digital will support Philips to monetise their Smart TV inventory, enabling them to access additional revenue streams.

Paulo Lopes, Partnership Manager Smart TV at Philips TV, says: “This is an entirely new step for us, and we’ve chosen to work with Improve Digital due to their expertise in the video programmatic industry.”

Kyra Steegs, Senior Video Director at Improve Digital, adds: “We are thrilled to be working together with TP Vision Philips and connect their premium inventory with our technology, data and worldwide video demand. Adding TV screens as a device to our full-stack offering is part of our broader video strategy, equipping us for the changing TV ecosystem. Together we create a frictionless video advertising experience for viewers and the kind of niche targeting potential that advertisers and marketers crave.”

For advertisers this means that showing their programmatic campaigns on the big screen, they now match the impact and quality of the traditional TV spot. Rivalling the traditional TV spot, programmatic campaigns are extending from day-time to night-time, and primetime, TV.
