At TVision, we measure every second of TV and CTV content and ads and report on engagement in our SAAS platform Ad Scoreboard. We used that data to identify the top-performing ads of summer, which we've highlighted below.
In Ad Scoreboard, marketers are able to drill into the performance of their campaigns at the brand level and also analyze the performance of specific ads. Marketers use Ad Scoreboard to evaluate their own engagement and compare it to competitors. With insight into overall Attention and Viewability, as well as the networks, apps, and dayparts that perform best, marketers are able to optimize their campaigns for maximum value.
Take a look at the videos below to see how the top ads from October 2022 captured viewer Attention second-by-second. We ranked these ads based on Creative Breakthrough Score. Creative Breakthrough Score measures how well an ad captures attention compared to other ads that run in the same pod. It is a strong measure of an ad's creative impact.
