Catalina Chooses Cadent as TV Graph and Analytics Partner

Cadent, the advanced TV platform company,  announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Catalina, the leader in shopper intelligence and personalized digital media for CPG brands and retailers. Catalina will use the Cadent Platform to expand its marketing services to include linear TV, advanced TV, and OTT programming as part of its BuyerVision managed service, which also includes digital and in-store activation. Additionally, Cadent will offer its clients Catalina’s purchase-based audiences and cross-screen measurement services.

Linking it all together is Cadent Viewer Graph, a patented audience graph technology that resolves multiple TV devices back to a viewing household, enabling national TV advertisers to de-duplicate and map any audience segment into the full universe of television with minimal drop-off and maximum reach.  The Cadent Viewer Graph has been integrated with the Catalina Shopper ID Graph, which covers 107 million U.S. households, linking TV and digital campaigns to in-store purchases to inform media optimization in real-time and measure campaign efficacy.
