Advertisers using illumin will be able to leverage the contextual intelligence solution for brand safety, contextual segments, keywords, and sentiment to purposefully align their ads with relevant content to drive better ROI and brand recall. In addition, GumGum will be the first provider to offer sentiment analysis in the illumin platform.
“Very few DSPs have integrated new contextual partners over the past two years, so we are thrilled to be integrating into the illumin platform, bringing the new age of contextual capabilities to its users,” said Ken Weiner, Chief Technology Officer of GumGum. “Our pilot testing showed exciting results in GumGum’s ability to identify safe inventory that is typically marked and blocked as ‘unsafe,’ discovering a significant number of new opportunities for advertisers to connect with consumers.”
