Integration Offers Access to Political Audience-Based Segments Across OTT/CTV

Tru Optik, the identity resolution leader across OTT and Connected TV (CTV), announced an agreement with Deep Root Analytics, an audience-powered analytics company, to integrate Deep Root’s proprietary audience-based segments – political, public affairs and corporate advocacy – to Tru Optik’s Political Data CloudTM.

Through this integration, media companies and political advertisers will be able to leverage Deep Root’s audience segments with rich data sets of voter history, consumer and behavioral insights across OTT/CTV. Mapped against Tru Optik’s patented Household GraphTM of more than 80 million U.S. homes, political and issue advertisers are offered more enhanced targeting capabilities that result in more precise, effective and cost-efficient advertising campaigns.
