CTV Playing Larger Part in Video Mix for Candidates & Causes as Audiences Disperse Across Platforms & Screens
AdImpact, a leading provider of ad intelligence data for fast, smart decisions, has chosen Innovid, a leading independent CTV advertising delivery and measurement platform, as its cross-platform measurement partner for political linear and connected TV (CTV) campaigns. Leveraging the TVSquared by Innovid platform, AdImpact advertisers get a unified view of their converged TV campaigns and real-time insights on reach, frequency, incremental reach, and outcomes.
As 2022 midterm election races heat up, political media strategists are recognizing the need to move beyond just broadcast and cable to reach voters with changing viewing habits. With $1.5 billion in ad spend projected to go to CTV during this year’s midterms (17% of total political ad spend), video mixes are more heavily relying on streaming advertising to find, reach, and engage with targeted audiences across platforms and screens.
“This is a crucial political cycle, and CTV will play an instrumental role in helping candidates and causes get their messages heard by the right people, at the right times and in the right places,” said Kyle Roberts, CEO, AdImpact. “With the TV video mix looking very different from years past, having accurate, real-time measurement is critical. With the TVSquared by Innovid platform, we have access to delivery and performance metrics from linear and CTV in a single, unified solution, giving us granular insights into who was reached, where, when, and how often.”

“Broadcast and cable TV remain powerful tools for advertisers, but as CTV grows rapidly, advertisers are diverting dollars to streaming,” said Bob Ivins, Chief Strategy Officer, TVSquared by Innovid. “Understanding the unique reach of linear and streaming, and that overlap, have become increasingly important – and political advertising is no different. We are excited to support the measurement and analytics needs of candidates and causes during this political cycle.”
