Acxiom data will be integrated with Cadent Viewer Intelligence Graph, Cadent’s patented audience graph technology that resolves multiple TV devices back to a viewing household, enables national TV advertisers to de-duplicate and map any audience segment into the full universe of television with minimal drop-off and maximum reach. This partnership enables marketers to overlay specific audience attributes from the broader marketplace, create refined audience segments that can be linked directly to TV viewing and deepen overall campaign effectiveness, all in a privacy-compliant manner.

Marketers, increasingly facing difficulty finding their high-value audiences across screens, are demanding better tools to understand audience identity and activate their data quickly and intelligently across television. In Cadent Platform, marketers can append the Acxiom data segment of their choosing and know more about their audiences before they run campaigns, applying real-time insights to inform planning or optimize performance mid-flight.
